Weekend trip to Sedona and Flagstaff...a whirlwind trip to see what they're like.
Seriously stunning. I knew it'd be beautiful, but the wide open space, the rock striation, the shapes of the mountains, the valleys and river...amazing.
And then to Flagstaff. In town felt like Kalamazoo - pine trees, breweries, college kids. Then we drove up toward Humphey's Peak, the tallest mountain in Arizona. The skylift was closed for maintenance (bad luck!) but we wandered around and enjoyed the views anyway.
Driving home, we stopped at Montezuma's Castle. Dates back to 1100-1400. Fun stop in the middle of a long stretch of highway.
