Red Rocks and Pink Jeeps
Our Saturday morning, we got up early to take a pink jeep tour of the red rocks around Sedona. We got a combo tour, so that meant we were going to spend about 3 hours driving around. Thankfully, these custom jeeps came with blankets, as it was a chilly morning!
We stopped multiple times for photo ops, and the interesting rock formations around us seemed to be never ending! The views were pretty amazing, too.
Towards the end of the tour, the jeep went down a very steep rock! I have no idea how this vehicle was able to do this without sliding down. It was almost like being on a roller coaster!
After all this excitement, a brunch with a view at Creekside Sedona was well deserved. 🙂
In the afternoon, we drove to Jerome, AZ – a small historic town nestled in the Black Hills of the county. Its population is only 500 people. The drive up to it was quite interesting, and the views were nice, but the town itself doesn’t have much to offer.
We drove back towards Sedona, and we saw a turn-off for Red Rock State Park, so we decided to check that out. We parked and took a short walk along the creek. We were rewarded with views of Cathedral Rock, one of the most famous formations around Sedona.
Our last stop before calling it a day was the Chapel of the Holy Cross. The church was built in 1956 by a student of the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. This is one of the most unique churches I’ve ever seen, and the beautiful views were worth dealing with all the tourists that swarm the place.
In the evening, we had another amazing meal at Cucina Rustica, just down the street from our B&B.
On Sunday, we drove all the way home to LA. Altthough we only spent a day and a half in Sedona, we could see why it’s become such a popular destination. We’d love to come back on a non-holiday weekend and explore some of the trails in the area.
First trip together, check! 🙂
