Visiting Arizona

We spent last week visiting Arizona. While there were many interesting things to see in the cities of Phoenix, Glendale and Peoria, and while we enjoyed very much the hospitality of our friends (Marc's extra-gracious family!), the highlight of our trip was visiting the Red Rocks of Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Oh and spending the day shopping at the Outlets at Anthem (of course!).

Here are some pictures:

SEDONA

These are the views that greeted us as we turned a bend in the road and entered Sedona. Truly breathtaking and worth the drive!

Here is a shot of downtown Sedona. There are a lot of nice cafes and interesting shops. Wouldn't it be amazing to live here amidst those gorgeous views? The town is home to many artists and writers. I could totally imagine living here while writing the Great American novel!

We took the Sedona Trolley Tour that brought us around the city of Sedona and up close to some of the trails that lead to the Red Rock formations. It was pretty interesting and we learned a couple of interesting facts about the Sedona countryside and the flora and fauna that inhabit it.

One more amazing shot of the gorgeous Red Rocks. These formations have such wonderful names like Snoopy, Coffee Pot and Sugarloaf which just adds to their charm.

GRAND CANYON

Here we are entering the Grand Canyon National Park. Jojo and I are posing with our matching North Face jackets =) We've had them for almost 2 years and finally found the appropriate occasion to wear them! Of course, it's pretty much just for show =) haha.

We took the Red Route tour up to Hermit's Peak. The tour allowed us to hop on and off the bus at several strategic points.

Here we are at one of the nine stops in our tour (I can't remember which one!). The weather was nice and cool that day which was lucky since we all like cold weather =)

Even with my brother's high-tech camera, these photos can do no justice to the scenery. Standing over several look-out points, I felt almost humbled by the grandness of the view and awestruck by the beauty of nature.

Glad you all had a good time seeing the rocks at Sedona - truly nature at its best. I was wondering if you saw the newly built ledge at Grand Canyon - i know i wouldn't even dare to step out.
