And what a drive it was.

I drove through three hail storms and a snowstorm. Fact.

Two hailstorms hit before I'd made it more than an hour and a half south of Page. The snowstorm started in northern Coconino National Forest, north of Flagstaff. It was snowing REALLY hard in Flagstaff, though. I stopped to get a few things from a grocery store -- wearing flip flops, mind you, totally unprepared! -- and when I came back to my car after only 10 or 12 minutes, I practically needed a shovel to get the piled-up snow off my windshield! Crazy!

The third hailstorm hit while I was looking for a place to have lunch in Sedona. (More photos in the next entry.)

I was really only passing through Sedona to see it, because people told me I should, and I can see why! There was snow on the ground from the storm in the northern sections, and man was it pretty. A winter wonderland in late April!

What a unique and beautiful place! I'd love to come back.

EVEN though the third and final hailstorm of the day rained on me here. I forgive you, Sedona.
