camping at the rim

We finally camped with our Euro Bed last night, along with my fluffy-soft vintage bedding and we loved it... very comfortable and cozy. BUT didn't sleep too well. WAAAAY too quiet. I mean REEALLY quiet!

We drove up to the Mogollon Rim around 9PM after my friend Karen's birthday party at their cabin in the Christopher Creek area. What a fun day filled with great food, friends and fellowship! And what a gorgeous night, a full moon, in the 60's... simply perfect.

We woke up this morning as the sun was rising and we were mere steps from the edge of the Rim. Breathtaking! Have I told you recently how beautiful Arizona is! Well it is!

This is our Chrysler Stow-n-Go van. We have shade screens that we cover all the windows with to give us privacy.

Happy Anniversary to us! Randy & I are planning to camp at the Rim every Anniversary. But next time we need some serious white noise so we can actually sleep!

Gosh you brought tears to my eyes from these two posts. Breathtaking is the only word i can find for these remarkable posts. Thank you for sharing and Happy Anniversary and many, many more years together of love and happiness! Love, Lori

Awesome! Looks like you had a great time. Sorry you didn't get to sleep much. I find that any time I'm in a strange place I don't sleep well, especially the first night. Sounds like the weather was perfecto! You got to wear long sleeves after all. It's been so hot here this weekend. I can't wait for it to cool down.

Happy Anniversary you love birds.

Happy Anniversary.
I looove this part of Arizona! I remember having trouble sleeping when we first moved from San Diego up to Ramona, although this morning we woke up to some very loud thunder. It looks like you 2 also probably saw some storms today.

Now THAT is the part of Arizona that I love. It's so pretty up there. I love going up to the rim. You are one brave girl...I would NEVER and I mean NEVER be out of that ledge. I was sick looking at you on it. :o) You looked cute, but no thank you. So glad you had a nice time.

see you there! said...

Happy Anniversary to both of you.

The views are breathtaking but you couldn't get me to go that close to the edge!

Happy Anniversary--you and your DH are obviously so very much made for each other, you both are very blessed for having met. Love your photos-your trip was spectacular (I wouldn't have been able to sleep in silence either)!

Happy anniversary!
Thank you for visiting my blog. I am new to blogging, so I have a lot to learn. Thank you so much for you sweet comments! That made my day!
I looked up your blog and am enjoying it very much. You are a wonderful photographer!
My hubby & I celebrated our 26th anniversary this past June. Time flies, doesn't it?
Anyway, I am adding you to my favorite blog list so I can enjoy your stories and pics all the time.
You have a blessed day!

Happy Anniversary! My inlaws live in AZ (Tucson area) and so we visit them occasionally - the state is beautiful but we have yet to go to the Grand Canyon - it's a top priority.

I like the idea of sleeping on the Eurobed in the van with the vintage quilt - definitely cozy but sorry you didn't get much sleep.

And, of course, Happy Anniversary!

That camping out in the back of the mini-van looks like a blast! My hubby of 26 years and I will have to try that up north in MICHIGAN. Blessings and congratulations on your anniversary!!
