Sedona, Arizona is one of those places that I think everyone needs to see in their lifetimes. The red rocks look completely photoshopped. For example, the picture above doesn’t look real but I assure you that I was hundreds upon hundreds of feet in the air on a cliff.
Last week we took a trip out there to meet up with my husbands side of the family. Instead of going “home” for Christmas we decided to do a little vacation instead. I couldn’t be any more happy with the decision we made. Traveling with two little ones isn’t easy but going to a place like Sedona was worth every second. It isn’t the best vacation spot for toddlers with all of the cliffs, obviously, but we found plenty to do with them.
Everett, who is 4, hiked quite a bit! He did several miles at a time with minimal complaints. Where as Aria, my 2 year old, wasn’t having any of the walking. This made long hikes with everyone difficult but it worked out fine having someone stay back at the resort with her.
The coolest hike the husband and I did was up to Devil’s Bridge. It really showed me exactly how out of shape I am. The hike was a total of about 5 miles with a lot of up hill climbing and rock climbing. Totally worth it once you get all the way up. You can’t tell exactly how high it is in this photo and my husband isn’t the greatest at capturing pictures but this is the top of Devil’s Bridge.
Overall it was a fantastic trip filled with some of the most gorgeous scenery I’ve ever seen. Pictures truly don’t do it justice. I’d recommend leaving little ones at home if at all possible so you’re able to do more. If you do bring them you won’t be able to do a lot of the long hikes but it’s still unbelievably breathtaking.
