Road Tripping Through Arizona

This year we check off another adventure off of our bucket list and took a mini road trip through Arizona! First stop was the Grand Canyon... and I have to say that this was THE most epic view I have ever seen! I kept thinking that this HAS to be a green screen or something; I just couldn't get over the beauty of the Grand Canyon!  We spent the whole day hiking the Grand Canyon and just marveling at its grandiosity. Neither Chris or I are avid hikers, so we ended up booking a guided hike with All Star Grand Canyon Tour and it was so much fun!

Our next stop was Lower Antelope Canyon. This was quite the adventure as neither of us realized that all of what you'll see in these next set of pictures was actually below ground. Talk about tight quarters.. lol. I loved the swirling sandstone walls and all the beautiful shades of colors. Depending how the light flowed into the canyon, the walls changed from shades of orange to shades of pinkish purple! It was absolutely amazing.

After spending a few days in Flagstaff we headed to Sedona. Sedona was my favorite. No matter where you were standing, the views were stunning. Seeing the Red Rocks every morning never got old.  During our few days stay in Sedona, we took a Pink Jeep Tour and did a lot of hiking, our favorite hike being Devil's Bridge.  I told Chris, I could totally see us retiring in Sedona! Definitely left a little bit of my heart there.

Devil's Bridge was crazy and terrifying, but worth it to see that magnificent view!

Our final stop was Scottsdale. This part of the trip was all about good food and relaxing at our resort! But we did hike around the desert just to see all the cacti :-)
