I cannot remember how Sedona made it into our road trip itinerary.
I think that initially a friend mentioned it to me. Then I realised that it was a handy stop along the drive back to Los Angeles after discovering northern Arizona. A quick check online firmed the idea that Sedona would be a good place to visit.
Located 120 miles north of Phoenix (Arizona), Sedona is famous mainly for its red sandstone formations and wilderness.
Popular destination for biking and hiking, several trails outside town will keep you busy for as long as you like. Try the Cathedral Rock Trail if you are in for a vertical challenge!
Sedona is also renowned for its spiritual significance. The area is thought to be at the centre of vortexes that radiate from the Earth, and as a results it attracts spiritual types and healers all year round.
But if you just want to walk in the town centre, shops and art galleries of any sorts will keep you busy. And let’s not forget the spas!
As the sun sets over Sedona, its light illuminates the mountains. Stop and have a drink while watching the brilliant orange and red colours: it is an unforgettable experience!
