Sedona to Flagstaff

We spent the late morning in Sedona hiking around Red Rock State Park (after a leisurely wake up, then toast & jam for breakfast). I walk places sometimes, but I hadn’t officially hiked in years (or sort of ever?) so it was a nice change. I think I prefer hiking in this sort of spot over walking around the neighborhood just to walk. The weather was warm and the surroundings were beautiful. We wandered for a few miles, and went up to Eagle’s Nest Overlook. After our hike, we wound our way up the mountains to head to Flagstaff. We stopped shortly before arriving at a lookout point and I took the above photo. It was suddenly much colder when we got out of the car there, so it felt like we’d driven so much further. It’s sort of amazing how going up a mountain changes things so much. I can’t recall ever seeing a view quite like this one. Tomorrow: the Grand Canyon!
