Where have I been? Hiking red rocks in Sedona, Arizona!
I typically dream of tropical islands for a winter getaway, but this year I dared to visit one of America's most beautiful cities and get back to nature.
For an alternative, off-season, ACTIVE trip, I can't recommend Sedona enough. There's endless hiking options, each trail a unique experience. There are fine Arizona wines. There are spas and wellness centers galore. There is beautiful art on display in the many galleries. There are wild off-road jeep rides. There are stars spread across the sky, untainted by city lights.
Here are some scenes from the trip:
Bell Rock and Cathedral Butte Loop
|Hanging out in a little cave|
|Awkwardly balancing my way down the slope|
|The sky was on FIRE!|
Sunrise on the red rock
Pink Jeep Tour: Broken Arrow (Thank you, Hilary, for the recommendation!)
|Cathedral Rock silhouette|
Another night's sunset, igniting the red rock again
Hike: Doe Mesa
|Getting Blissed In in nature!|
|Our picnic view|
|Heading back down was always the hardest part!|
I had such a wonderful time, and can't recommend Sedona enough!
