|View of Boynton Canyon in Enchantment Resort|
There are wild animals around here too, not like the opossum and the neighborhood skunk at home. We saw a roadrunner and a fox running across the road on our way into the canyon yesterday. Years ago one sorry bunny rabbit met its demise in the front grill of our rental car late one night coming back from town. We drive our own car now rather than fly and rent. Luckily no more road kill since that one sad encounter.
|Coffee Pot Rock|
Yesterday we ate twice at the Wildflower Bread Company--lunch and dinner. I had two different types of soup and treated myself to a loaf of raisin walnut bread to bring back to the room so I could eat something in the morning when I walked to the lobby to get our complimentary coffee. This year we are very close to the lobby so the walk is very short. One of my favorite things about the morning is the walk to the lobby to get coffee before most people are up. I love the canyon in the crisp morning air and the light on the red rocks is awe inspiring. Since my walk is short this year I am not getting that experience and since it is a bit chilly in the morning I am not getting the opportunity to sit on our balcony with the hot coffee looking at the rock formations. Nonetheless it is still wonderful to be here.
One of my favorite things about Enchantment is that there is no BB or cell phone reception at the resort. I really cannot be reached easily here and forced to get on yet another conference call or review yet another document. I have discovered that there is wireless in this particular room so I can be on my computer and touch iPod at all hours. Last time we were here I could only get wireless reception in the lobby and not in the room which was a ways away from the lobby. I am not sure which situation I prefer. Hmmm.
