San Diego, working, conventioning and late nights all seem like a long time ago at this moment. But please visit San Diego it is beautiful.
We left San Diego and drove to Palm Springs on Thursday afternoon where we spent a night, before setting off early Friday on a 6-hour drive to the beautiful red rocks of Sedona. We took an early pit stop at the Joshua Tree National Park to stare and photograph this amazing tree."It's supposed to be the oldest living organism in the desert. They can't put a time on it, because when you cut it, there's no rings to indicate how old it is. Maybe that's a good sign for the record"
- Larry Mullen Jr.
We are in Sedona now and their red rocks form a gorgeous backdrop but it's also a great base to explore Arizona's desert and canyons. And today we took the most awesome journey.
We flew from Sedona to the 17-million year old Grand Canyon
, truly one of the natural wonders of the ancient and modern world. I'll write more on our trip next week but being allowed to fly our little Cessna 400 back by our guide and pilot was the icing on one of my favourite ever days.
Tomorrow we leave Sedona for two nights in Las Vegas to wrap up our desert road trip. We are 8 hours behind London here and the Addicks would have probably ended a sorry season by the time we take to Route 66 and the casinos of Vegas.
