Jung Family Vacation in Arizona, Day 1: Arrival and the Shadow of Castle Rock
First day in our rental house (tucked away in a gated community, just off 17/89A). I think most of these houses in the neighborhood are vacation homes, as a lot of nearby houses seem empty.
We all slept in a bit, as everyone arrived late the night before. Liz and I drove in and arrived around 12:30 AM; everyone else showed up around 2AM.
Awesomely great bonus: upstairs, there are three pinball machines and a Galaga cabinet (that’s really a MAME cabinet).
A cozy area upstairs.
Dad, playing a bit while Jahnu tackles some Batman pinball.
We trekked in to Sedona, and headed to a spot near Cathedral Rock (to a spot where Shane and Stacey got married).
The Cathedral in the distance.
Past a long road, we entered down into a small clearing area.
Dad, hopping between rocks.

Jasmine, Jahnu, and Shane, taking a little break after a small climb.
Following a trail…
Near a creek, we found a carefully balanced rock.

The kids had boundless energy.
Anywhere they could jump, they jumped.
