It was windy, chilly and wet at Lake Powell and most of the surrounding area, so I retreated to Cottonwood AZ to get dry and warm. But then it got too warm, with the forecast showing serious heat on the way for almost everywhere within a day's drive. The non-roasting oasis in the middle of it all was Flagstaff. So up the hill I went. Pines, snow-capped mountains... I think I'll stay a while.
