A few weeks back, we took off for the Pacific Northwest on a road trip in search of rain. Along the way we stopped very briefly at an Arizona gift shop featuring petrified wood and other rocks and minerals. I liked this column in front of the building, which featured some of the rocks to be found within.
Beez did a marvelous job of booking accommodations for the trip. First stop, downtown Flagstaff's Weatherford Hotel, which dates back to 1897. The halls were long, a little dark, and appropriately creaky.
Our room contained Victorian furniture and a woodstove for colder seasons, but my favorite part...
... was the bathroom, claw-foot tub and all. You can see more photos on the hotel's photo page, where the second photo shows a wider shot of "our" room.
The little mountain town was lively at night, with street musicians and bands playing in alleys and on restaurant patios, and people cheerfully dancing most everywhere. This is a shot taken just at dawn, when all the partygoers were still asleep and we were ready to hit the road once more.
