Broken Arrow Trail


We arrived at the hotel for which we had prepaid reservations to find it closed. No one is in the office. No one is answering phones. Leaves are on the ground. Newspapers are piled up by the door. Disconnect notices from utility companies are on the windows. There is a problem here.

We spent the evening finding new accommodations rather than enjoying Sedona. Plus, the replacement hotel cost about twice as much. :'(

Arroyo Burro Beach

Arroyo Burro Beach, also known as Hendry's Beach, is within a 15 minutes drive from downtown Santa Barbara. It made for a nice break from driving as we passed through the area. We stopped to play in the sun, sand, and surf before heading east into Los Angeles area traffic.

The beach is surfer, children,and dog friendly. Dogs are permitted to run off leash on the east end of the beach.
