Where Sunlight Illuminates the Earth | Sedona

While visiting family in Arizona this Thanksgiving, Tiffany and I snuck away for a day to visit Sedona. Two hours north of Phoenix, Sedona is known for its red rock formations and hiking trails. I’d hoped we would get the place to ourselves, since everyone should have been either shopping or relaxing at home. I was mistaken. Some of the parking lots for the scenic spots and hiking trails were completely full AND double parked. We had no luck finding parking, except at the Crescent Moon Picnic Site (thanks to paid parking).

The parts of Sedona we did get to see were very pretty. It boasts a rugged beauty in its towering rocks. As the sun sets, you can almost see the colors reflecting back from the dusky red walls. Despite the crowds and the traffic, there were moments when I felt like we were the only two people in the world.

Crescent Moon Picnic Area. It costed $10 to park inside, but it was worth it.

The clouds put on quite a show that day.
