Arizona is filled with astonishing scenery known for dropping jaws and stopping hearts, but I experienced an overwhelming amount of breathtaking beauty when I made the Red Rocks my playground.
Stunning monoliths and buttes surrounded by lavish green forestry create the perfect atmosphere to relax and rejuvenate in Sedona.
What makes Sedona so special? That’s up to you to decide. The beauty of it is that each person walks a way with an experience that is different. For me, it was a break from the seriousness of life.
It’s hard to find quiet time when you’re surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the city (the Valley). Demands from life, and stress in general, make it almost impossible to find time for self-care.
Sedona makes it easy. You can escape the life of demands for as long as you wish and lose yourself in a place that will keep you sane and carefree.
Everyone needs a getaway once in awhile. Sedona is the ideal home away from home.
From hiking up to Chapel of the Holy Cross to exploring various shops and restaurants, I was able to forget about my worries for a while and immerse myself in nature.
During my trip, I reflected on life and remembered the treasures that come with it. The beautiful rocks reminded me of God’s impeccable creations. The majestic trees reminded me of life and how precious it is.
There are simple things that I often take for granted each day, and it’s refreshing to recall those things and why they are special.
Not only is Sedona an escape from the business of life, it reinforces the idea of life as a gift. Surrounded by perfection, you can’t help but appreciate the life you’ve been given.
