“Happy 70th Birthday Bruce Kahn!!”
We arrived in Phoenix on Monday, October 5th, staying at the Pueblo El Mirage RV Resort & Country Club for a week. The timing worked out perfect. As we are so excited to be able to help Bruce celebrate his 70th birthday in Sedona. We drove D Beast (jeep) to Sedona on Saturday and met Karen Moyer and Bruce for lunch at Tlaquepaque(pronounced T-lockey-pockey) Arts and Crafts Village. Nestled beneath giant sycamore trees on the banks of the Oak Creek, Tlaquepaque is the most distinctive shopping complex to be found in the Southwest. Then we drove to the house that Bruce rented for the week to spend his birthday with friends and family. What an exceptional house set on a hill with wonderful views looking west over Sedona and the red rocks. We started the weekend off with Moscow Mules sitting around the pool and hot tub with Karen, Bruce and their friends, Rick and Barb Johnsto. Then we ate a wonderful home-cooked dinner sitting outside watching the sunset. Click on thumbnail to view images
The next morning we, Bruce, Karen, Rick, Bob and I took the 4-wheel drive road to the Trailhead for the Hangover Trail. It is a beautiful hike walking over the cow pies and up the red cliffs to the saddle and rewarded with a beautiful view of Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. It is also a strenuous, double-black mountain biking trail and we happened to meet three men attempting to complete the trail. Finally back at the house, it was straight into the hot tub with more Moscow Mules, to celebrate Bruce’s successful hike and turning 70. Not bad for an “Old Guy”! Still so young at heart Bruce!
