I was talking to a friend about places to go in Arizona to get out of town. She lives in Phoenix and sometimes she gets tired of being in the city. I was thinking about some of my favorite places when I lived there.
When I think of my favorite places, Sedona always comes up. There is a little place inside a box canyon called Enchantment Resort, and I have stayed there several times.
It’s a tucked away outside of town in a box canyon, and it’s just such a peaceful, stunning place to take a vacation.
It doesn’t matter what time of year you go. I think Fall is best because the hiking trails behind the resort have some trees that change color.
However, it’s a wonderful place to go any time.
Sedona has a wonderful arts scene, and there are lots of galleries to enjoy. There are pink jeep tours, and nature trails all over the place.
Plus, I think the red rocks are some of the most stunning scenery I have ever seen, of all the places I have been on Earth.
Of course, not having a DSLR, my humble cell phone pictures can’t begin to convey how beautiful it really is. Even with a real camera, it’s not the same as seeing it in person.
All I am saying is, if you are in Phoenix and need a break, it’s an amazing place to take one.
