Protecting the Immune-Compromised Keeps Everyone Safe

Earlier this summer, when I began planning my family’s first real vacation in two years, I carefully chose which National Parks we’d visit. White Sands, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Joshua Tree, and Sequoia National Park easily made the cut—lots of open-air hiking where we could avoid people. We skipped Zion—traversing the crowds and taking the requisite sardined shuttle felt too risky. My kids also really wanted to see Roswell and its aliens, but the main draw was an indoor museum. Though my husband and I are vaccinated, both of our kids are under 12 and therefore unvaccinated. Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had recklessly rolled back its mask recommendations in May, we kept asking, could we visit safely? How many people would be there? How many would be wearing masks?

Getting around in Sedona

Sedona is a small desert city with more than 200 trails, hillside wineries and dozens of galleries spread out over 19 square miles. Although it has a public-transportation system, to access all the city has to offer, it's best to get behind the wheel. Car and motorcycle rentals are available at the Sedona Airport and in West Sedona, which also offers off-road vehicles. Rates range from about $60 a day for a compact car and gas prices in Arizona are usually cheaper than in other states.

A trip to Presque Isle State Park opens a world of possibilities

Back in 2014, I wrote my first book, "The Moods of Presque Isle," a narrative about Presque Isle State Park presented in photographs, prose, poetry and personal reflections. The book was an attempt to share with others the tranquility and beauty that my family and I have been fortunate to experience on this small peninsula that juts into Lake Erie.
