Day trip to Sedona (Memorial Day weekend getaway cont.)
Hey, guys!!! Here is another post regarding my Arizona trip. I hope you’ve enjoyed all of them so far. This one is the best one, I think, because it’s about my day trip to Sedona. This was my first visit to Sedona and after hearing so many good things about it, I was very excited. Every time I plan a trip, even if it is for only a few days, I always do research on the location. I’m a very organized person so I like to have everything on my trip scheduled beforehand that way I don’t waste time when I get there. Well, when I started looking into my trip to Sedona, I saw that the jeep tours through Sedona were very popular and highly recommended. Out of all the jeep tours there, the one that stood out the most was the Pink Jeep Tours. I checked them out online and decided on their most famous one, which was the Broken Arrow Tour. So that’s the one we booked; I was so excited!
On Sunday (the only full day we would be in Arizona), we traveled to Sedona from Phoenix (about 2 hours) but before that, we headed over to Cracker Barrel. My God, the food at that place is so good! We don’t have that chain of restaurants in California so whenever I am in Florida, I take advantage and go, but I was happy to know they also have them in Arizona. Nonetheless, when I found out, I knew we had to go. You have to check it out if you’re ever in a state that has that restaurant!
After breakfast, we were off to Sedona! On our way there, we pulled over at one of the rest stops which also happened to have great views of the Arizona desert. Of course, I had to take a picture!
After our pit stop, we were off again. As we were nearing Sedona, we stopped at the Red Rock Scenic Byway where I also took some pictures.
After that, we continued on our way to Sedona. Once we arrived, we headed to the pick up location for the Pink Jeep Tours and boarded our jeep for the next two hours. The views during our tour were amazing! These pictures don’t do it justice. It sort of reminded me of the Grand Canyon, which I visited when I was younger, except obviously the Grand Canyon is much larger in size. They’re similar yet different. Hope that makes sense lol. I had an amazing experience and it was totally worth it. I took so many pictures but couldn’t include them all, so I tried to include the best ones, and it was still a lot. Hope you enjoy all of them. If you get a chance to go, do so! You won’t regret it. I plan to go back and maybe stay in Sedona to enjoy it more because there is a lot we didn’t get to full enjoy because we needed to drive back to Phoenix. Some of these pictures were taken from the jeep and I took them like that on purpose so you can see what our views were like as we were driving through (more like off roading!). There was also a fire somewhat close-by on the road from Sedona to Flagstaff and although it didn’t hinder our tour, you can see some of the smoke if you look closely on the background of some of the pictures.
I have one more post for my Arizona trip that I hope to have up in the next few days since I leave for San Francisco next week! Stay tuned!
