Sandra Wester and Suzan Miller vacationed in Arizona last week. They visited and hiked in the Petrified Forest National Park, Meteor Crater and Walnut Canyon National Monument on the way to Sedona, Ariz.

They saw the Tuzigoot National Monument, Montezuma Castle National Monument, the towns of Cottonwood, Clarkdale, Camp Verde and Jerome. They hiked at the historic Crescent Moon Ranch and Red Rock State Park and drove the Red Rock Loop, where they stopped to see the Chapel of the Holy Cross. They also took some time to shop in uptown Sedona and the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. Sandra reports, “It was a fun vacation.”
