Road Trip '05 - Lost in Arizona

The plane ticket for Arizona, she is bought. Trina and I will be spending October 1-8 out West, taking in such sights as Taliesin West, the Grand Canyon, the red rock hills of Sedona, the Navajo-guided tour of Canyon de Chelly, and Sandia Peak in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In between all those things we'll be tooling around Route 66 in a convertible, eating at roadside diners, and stopping in whatever city we end up in for the night.

Trina's goal is to find the best locally-owned ice cream parlor every night, and partake of their wares. Ice cream on a daily basis? I can get behind that (although I made the qualification that milkshakes, malts, and other desserts are also included).

We've made no reservations for anything except the Navajo tour and our hotel in Albuquerque (the Balloon Festival will be in town while we're there, so lodging is scarce and expensive). This road trip is almost completely free form, which is exciting.

I've started buying stuff for the trip, which is fun (an excuse to go shopping? I'm there!). I've ordered two Manhattan Portage messenger bags - the Europa in red and the Europa Deluxe in black. I'll only be keeping one of them; I kind of like the idea of the red, but seeing it in person is key.

If you have some extra cash, you must eat here while in Sedona. http://www.enchantmentresort.com/dining/

The view is fab during daylight hours, as is the food.

Sorry for the double-post, but this is also a must.
