So....August is Busy, Too Busy, but still some small adventures
So, This was on the drive home yesterday......and inspired this entire post, but more on that later.
Derick is doing well and learning to drive at high speeds on these long, straight roads out here in the west.
And Driving Past herds of Buffalo
So, Life at home with a teenager/young adult is interesting.
Trying different flavors and varieties of the Cereal that seems to be his major food group......
and the Random placement of furniture on the sidewalk to our apt........
But he has been working a lot and is exhausted most days......
But such is life at Amangiri! Balloon flights at dawn,
Always doing something special for the guest's children in their rooms
And A lot more that I can's even show or talk about. This resort is truly amazing!
But Derick and I usually average about one day off each week and we try to get out and explore, this week it was a trip to Flagstaff shopping and then a hike through Sunset Crater National Park
With a trip to an ancient Native American home from the 1100's AD.
I think I totally remember coming to this place before with my parents when I was young and had a very emotional response when I saw this angle, I think I fell down here as a kid or something. VERY strange Deja-vu experience.
Of Course SOMEONE decided to go climbing
And then had to come back down and do it again as he forgot his Camera.
But either he has a Guardian Angel, or the Devil looks out for his own, but he survived without a scratch, or even a scrape.
And Finally, yesterday, we had one of those really intense desert rainstorms that last for all of 20 minutes, but dump a ton of water in that time.
At the Service building on the way home we saw the start of this double Rainbow between the Mesas that completely surround the resort.
And on the Road home it was like we were driving right into the heart of the Rainbow.
And I found out a surprising fact. I was taking home one of my Peruvian and one of my Romanian workers and BOTH of them knew about "the pot of god at the End of the Rainbow". And Leprechauns. Funny how that belief is world wide.
Still, another beautiful ending to a wonderful day at Amangiri!
