Sedona and its surrounding area offer some of the most breathtaking landscape views. We did a short hike at the Red Rock State Park and saw really amazing weather changes with the gorgeous background. Hard to not take a good photo when you see something like this. To really appreciate it you have to see it at higher resolution, full screen (hint – click on the image).
What a place! True to its name, it is Grand. None of the photos will ever do the justice to its size and expanse. You have to see it in person with your own eyes to appreciate its true magnificence. If you guys never been to it, you have to put on your bucket list and try to visit it. We were there last year only for one day, on the South Rim, not enough! I’d like to see it again with at least a few days of on site exploration and hiking. Visiting the North Rim would be awesome as well. But for now I’ll just look at this photo, as it will be my wall paper for the next few days!
So I finally got into the Grand Canyon folder on my hard drive and sorted them out into stacks of the bracketed photos. I took so many of them during our short one day visit to the Grand Canyon, hopefully will be able to process more of them in the coming weeks and months.
During a single day we saw some sun, some blue sky, a lot of moving clouds and some serious snow storm. All types of weather in short 7-8 hours of daylight. Do you see the Colorado River?
As always, you can click on the image and see higher resolution image in my photo gallery. Enjoy.
We were there in the middle of the winter and as you can see it was a bit cold. What I’m wondering if the name of the park stays true to its name in the summer time. Does anyone know if you can get in the water and slide on any of the rocks? There are a lot of places down there that seems like would allow this, do they actually allow to get in the water to do it, not sure. You can see one of the photos from the river level here.
Continuing with the bridges theme we are moving a bit into land, into sunny Arizona. If you take route 89 from Flagstaff to Sedona you will drive over it, just about one mile before you get to Sedona. There is a small parking lot at the top of the bridge and there is a short hike under it to enjoy the beautiful views. Sedona is actually almost visible here, it is right there where canyon merges and connects with sky and disappearing clouds.
