Two hours from Phoenix, AZ is Sedona. This was not a planned trip; instead, my friends and I were trying to kill time before we head up to Utah. After eating brunch locally in Phoenix, we were told to visit Sedona. It is a small town comparable to Napa, CA. The sandstones and the sunset was incredibly beautiful! There are hiking areas within the vicinity, but you will have to pay for parking. Luckily, the day we went, parking was free. The scenery is utterly amazing!
