Sedona is a city known for its brilliant warm hues and sandstone formations that illuminate red under the sun. An hour and a half away from Phoenix, Sedona makes an easy weekend getaway. For my family, it was a pleasant chance to break away from house searching and finally relax.
The view was gorgeous from every angle. We paid for a jeep ride up, horribly bumpy but a true adventure, and were rewarded with this beautiful sight (above).
As we hiked up the marked trails, we even saw a gathering up bikers riding past the bumpy rocks. *bows in admiration*
I do this silly thing where I forget to plan ahead, just like the time I wore heels onto the Great Wall, I arrived at Sedona with these shiny pink flipflops, decorated in sequences. I think I’ve come to the acceptance that I’m just not a smart person – so when I registered that experiencing Sedona involved hiking, rock climbing, and maneuvering through tricky places, I silently wept and looked down at my feet. Surprising enough however, the flip flops worked pretty well with rock climbing and I was “applauded” / laughed at by strangers for my brave choice of attire. Yes!

One of the most beautiful views came from the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
