Photos: Sedona and the Grand Canyon in Arizona

As a long-time resident of Seattle, I’ve traveled my fair share of the West Coast of the USA, but haven’t spent much time in Arizona. That was the main reason for a somewhat spontaneous weekend trip to the Southwest, specifically the Grand Canyon and Sedona. The trip involved a flight to Flagstaff, where a rental car was secured. From there, it was a drive to the Grand Canyon for some photo opportunities, before driving to Sedona for a two-night stay. Photos from the trip are below!

Grand Canyon, Arizona

Grand Canyon National Park is easily one of the biggest geographical highlights in the entire United States. The immense canyon with its layers of red rock are breathtaking, particularly at sunrise and sunset. Unfortunately, this trip to the canyon occurred at midday, so the colors weren’t as vibrant as they could have been. However, the natural splendor of the Grand Canyon still showed through in its sheer size.

Sedona, Arizona

The Arizona desert town of Sedona is renowned for its red-rock buttes and mystical vibe. These were two of many reasons why Sedona was the destination of a rather spontaneous trip to the Southwest of America. Certainly, the region’s famous red sandstone formations were a photography highlight including the popular sites of Cathedral Rock and Chapel of the Holy Cross. In fact, there was so much to see and do in Sedona that a quick weekend getaway definitely wasn’t enough. Here’s to hoping for a swift return to Sedona someday soon.
