OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
Day Trip To Sedona

Me & D
Today, Damien & I drove up to spend the day in Sedona. Best of all, I conquered a HUGE couple of fears today - I took a helicopter tour of the mountains and valleys with Damien. I am terrified of heights and also of flying. Today, I made that fear my bitch.

Amazing, added to my bucket list.

Confronting fear on your own terms should be on everyone's bucket list, no matter what form it takes!

Great pictures! I grew up in the Mojave desert and do miss it at times as well as the other deserts in the southwest.

I LOVE living in the desert, there's something very magical about the West.

Great pictures, and congrats on the flight!
I've always wanted to fly in a helicopter. Some day...!

I highly recommend doing this one, you can watch videos and such but nothing really prepares you for the feeling of motion and gravity's pull from doing this - and sit up front, where there is nothing underneath your feet but glass!!

Gorgeous pictures! Looks like a fun trip!

OMG, you should come out here, even if only for a short while, and explore. I love the South - it's been my home for almost 40 years, and it's beautiful there - but there is magic in the West.

It's on my list......closest I got was a day trip to the grand canyon when I was in vegas.

It's a magnificent view. What are those rock formations (or whatever they are)?

The ones that are flat on top are called mesas. The airport was built on top of the one nearest uptown Sedona. The ones that rise up into wide columns are called buttes. The thin, skinny ones are called pinnacles. Everything else is just a regular old mountain.

I don't like to fly, but I fly. I flew in a helicopter once, and immediately afterward had its dangers explained to me. I will NOT fly in a helicopter again--it's far more dangerous than flying in a fixed-wing aircraft.

At the same time, the experience was amazing. I will have to enjoy it in retrospect from now.

Absolutely gorgeous, and some beautiful architecture as well. And if I'm not mistaken, the little chapel built into the hillside is one that features in a bunch of (trashy, urban fantasy) novels I've enjoyed reading. It looks just like how it is described in the books. :-)

Glorious photos! More reasons to go visit AZ!

...I miss you guys so much.

Yeah - you would TOTALLY love this place.

We miss you too, sweetness!

Of that, I have absolutely no doubt! My brother used to live in Tucson, so I've seen how beautiful that area is, although I haven't seen Sedona specifically. Would love to go back....
