We live in New York City, I run an aquarium in Norwalk, CT and my husband is a retired professor of science education. He still teaches at Columbia Teachers College. We are great Italian cooks, speak a little Italian. I grew up in California loving the Sierras, and we both really enjoy the outdoors. We have been to Sedona once before, so when a business trip to Phoenix materialized, I thought a long weekend in Sedona would be just what we need.
