Saturday morning our second day in Arizona we made the two hour drive to Sedona, Arizona. Sedona is most famous for its stunning red rocks, which were absolutely breathtaking and have formed the backdrop for many a western film.
Sedona has spiritual importance and it reminded me of a spiritual/hippie town. This was my firt trip to Sedona, and I certainly can’t imagine it will be my last.
On the drive up to Sedona we stopped at one of the rest stops an hour away from Sedona which was Sunset Peak. It was a beautiful spot and we were able to take a picture.
The temperatures in Sedona were much cooler than other Arizona destinations, thanks to the higher elevation. We did the pink jeep tour scenic route that was a two hour off road tour of the red rocks.
Carl, our guide with Pink Jeep Tours, was excellent: he continually provided us with interesting facts about all facets of life and history in Sedona while also managing not to wreck the Jeep. There were a lot of times I thought we were going to drive off the side of the mountain.
After the jeep tour we walked through all of the shops and had lunch at The Wildflower Bread Company. This place was delicious and reminded me of Panera Bread. I had the BBQ Chicken Salad and Jake had a meatball sub. It was great place to stop for lunch after our red rock adventure.
After our trip to Sedona we enjoyed the pool for a couple of hours and then cleaned up for dinner at Ventura Grill in Scottsdale. After dinner they had a fireworks show at 9:00 at our resort. We sat on our balcony watched the fireworks and drank wine! 🙂
