Lonely figure on the mountain

It has been a super busy week in AZ here. Pretty much has been working until 5-630pm everyday and follow with dinner with co-worker here until 9++pm. (It is a rare chances to meet everyone here discussing about the projects and in the mean time getting training and build the synergy from there). Seriously, just in case you all are curious if I have done any shopping? (Sorry I have not) :"P Yeah..., so I hope that I got sometime to go and get everything done by this weekend in FM. Anyway it is good that you know that what is coming up next for your tool and the future project and what part or role that you will be playing in the next few months.

More photos after the jump...

A wider view of the area

Along the way, we will stop at the designated scenic area to get some shoot. :) The view here is great. Although there is sunlight, but the temperature is pretty cold along the way. You will find different mountain form naturally in their special shape in this area. And in the mean time, Herb told and show me that we are going higher and higher above the sea level. (Yes, your ears will fell it as well) :"P

There are a few special scenic area along the way like the church on the mountain, the creeks (that is pretty deep). And yeah, we heard coyote howling there as well. (We tried to find him, but too bad, we just could not find it)

Another area that caught my attention is the mountain top of the Sedona, You will pretty much get a bird eye view of the town below the mountain as well as how the mountain and the sky comes together for a great view. Other than that, we also do stop beside a hugh bridge and there is like a walkway at the bottom where you could go there for some walk.

The dried lava and the snow

And we do manage to go to the Sunset Crater Volcano as well (Herb is trying to stretch the goal here) and luckily we manage to fight the time and arrive at the volcano before sunset (It is almost sunset but not  yet). Herb show me around the area and I am amaze on how the whole area was formed. All of the area is form by dried lava. (Pretty much looks like brownies on the road). But when you get closer, it is hard. So watch your step so that you will not fall, the lava cut pretty well as well.

Long and Windy road

The whole one day trip to Sedona was great, along the way, we do stop at a few destination to get some final evening shoot before I kept my camera for a day. Even someone like me also enjoy in the whole atmosphere of the whole tour. :)

Anyway, I would like to thanks Herb and Jeanette for taking their time off for this 2 days tour. (They have sacrifice their weekend Xmas decoration time for the tour). Without their companion, I believe the tour will be null and I will not be able to see so many great views that they brought me to) :). Thanks!!

I guess is almost time for me to get some rest. I hope that everybody will enjoy the AZ photo series. Today will be my last day here where I will be departing to FM tomorrow. For those who are interested to view the whole series. You all could view the gallery here.

Good Night and have a nice weekend ahead! :)
