#PhillaceRoadtrip2014 Day Three

Trevor and I woke up super early to air balloon around Sedona around sunrise! If dogs were allowed, we would have brought Shmo along (like when we went whale watching in Monterey ;)). But because the burners emit a high pitched sound only dogs can here, we left her to sleep in with Michael (thanks, hermano!).

Unfortunately, the burners caught fire while we were up there (loose O ring + too cold outside = a free 10 minute ride), so we had to emergency landing.

First on some shrubs and bushes. Then onto the road.

After that crazy adventure, we picked up Michael and Lo and attempted West Fork Trail.. and it’s 13 stream crossings..

This was so much fun! Watching Michael try to walk across a somewhat frozen lake.. Priceless.

Michael fell in a couple of times, Lola looooooooooved the ice. We all couldn’t stop laughing. We only made it 2/13 crossings and turned around.

We overheard a couple talking about Bearizona and that sounded kind of interesting. So we checked it out. AND it was… depressing. I’m bummed we didn’t research it because the animals were pacing the fences. It was like Jurassic Park but full of deer, bison, bears, etc.

Lola seemed interested though..

Trevor bought Lo the traditional chew toy. And this trip, she got a mountain goat. Because she was our little mountain goat! We ordered Italian takeout and ate in bed :)
