Sedona, AZ Nov 07, 2008
If you think the desert is bare and ugly, you haven't been to the right parts. Sedona is breathtaking in it's own unique way. The red rocks aren't just called red because they are kind of red. They really are red and huge and you never stop wondering how they all got there. There are some really nice parks with hiking trails and some fishing too along creeks. If you really want to see the sites, you should probably look into the Red Rock Jeep Tours or even hot air ballooning.
I never did the hot air ballooning because it was a bit out of my price range, but the red rock jeep tours were pretty sweet. You get to do some pretty steep rock climbing and get up close and personal with these magnificent red rock cliffs. Plus they give you all the history on the area, which was interesting to me, but I'm kind of a nerd like that. I will say that the outfits the driver wore were a bit cheesy. I mean he had a freakin bandana tied around his neck. However, he did know his facts and kept it interesting and fascinating the whole time.
Most of all, I recommend going here with amazing friends like I did to make it the perfect weekend. Krysta, an AZ local, and I have drove there a couple times while I lived in Phoenix for a while. Krysta and her hubby Nathan are still there for a while so if you want the hook up on where to go and 2 awesome people to go with - hit her up on my profile. :) She is the bestest friend I ever had and was the one who made me a Sedona admirer the first time.
Oh, and if you do the jeep tour, I suggest doing the scenic rim tour in the morning when the sun is behind you hitting the rocks for the perfect pic. I went in the evening thinking the sunset would be a pretty setting for my date and I, but it was shining directly at me - so no good scenic rim pics :( We still had an amazing time though. ;)
