Trip to Sedona, the Red Rock City

Located in Southern Arizona, in the Verde valley, Sedona is known for its beautiful red sandstone formations. There are a number of trails for activities like hiking and mountain biking that run across the valley which makes it quite popular among adventure enthusiasts.

Driving upwards to Sedona from Scottsdale took us about 2 hours including a 30 minute stop over at Sunset Point. Located off Interstate 17 exit 252, this point is a convenient stopover for weary travelers looking for taking a break to stretch the muscles. There is also a vending machine offering packaged refreshments.

As we made our way up we could feel an improvement in the weather. It allowed growth of both cacti and grass vegetation. On spotting a red monolithic rock we knew we were approaching our destination. In a few minutes we arrived.

Sedona

Clear blue skies with puffy white clouds, rows of green trees, shrubs and bushes, the lone cacti with red flower and tall red mountains rising up from the ground, cradling all this beauty. You will be surprised as to how much brighter colors appear in the desert. The sight just overwhelms you with its perfect beauty that only nature can create!
