Sedona, Arizona is one of our favorite places in the whole United States so on the 34th day of our family road trip we ventured to see some of the things that makes this place so special. Here’s seven things that we think make Sedona a terrific family destination:
- The red rock canyons. These rocks are everywhere and they especially shine “reddest” at sunrise and sunset, the best time to photograph or video tape them.
- Slide Rock Park. This park features a large spring that has natural water chutes that propel you through the rocks. One part of the park also features a canyon with 12 foot cliffs that you can dive into the water from. The water is frigid but your body will get used to it. Diving from the 12-foot cliff is scary and exhilarating at the same time.
- An easy and great place to hike and bike. The hiking paths in particular are not hard and offer beautiful walks right up to the red canyons. This is like walking among the lower parts of the Grand Canyon. (more…)
