We just had the most relaxing week in Sedona, Arizona. The weather was beautiful, the company was great, and we had a blast! It was about a nine hour drive, but it was great. It rained a little bit when we got to Arizona, but I was so excited. I even stuck my arm out the window to feel it! (When you live in LA, you kinda miss the rain!) We had a little detour and we kinda got lost on Route 66, but we figured it out and it was all good. 🙂

The hotel we stayed in had two pet snakes!! The black and white one was kinda going into hibernation so he wasn’t really that active, but the red snake was really active and he ate tons of crickets while we were there. This, of course, entertained me til no end! Snakes behind glass are kinda cute!

Ok, I know there are a lot of pictures, but they were so beautiful, I couldn’t narrow it down!
Here’s a few pics of Sedona and the area. So amazing.

Irving went golfing at one of the beautiful courses in Sedona.

After sunset, we went to visit the famous church that is built in into the red rocks. Pics are kind of blurry because there wasn’t much sunlight left. But they were too beautiful to leave out!

One day, Irving and I went for a bike ride to get some brunch. It was a little intense, the hills were enormous!! But it was a great workout, and I saw cool cacti on the side of the road. haha

One of the most famous rock formations in Sedona is called "Coffe Pot Rock" because, well… it looks like a coffee pot!! But check out the names of the streets at the base of the mountain! HAHA

I think one of the highlights of our trip was going to "Slide Rock Park"… It is a natural rock formation that has reallly slippery rocks, and you slide down them like a waterslide! The current pushes you through, and it was sooo much fun. Check out these cute pics!!

This is the little river, you slide all the way down them into a little reservoir at the bottom.

This is the road that gets you down into Sedona. I love how the roads are carved out of the mountain!
