A little trip to the land of cacti and tumbleweed!

Fabulous weather.  Dry heat.  Beautiful mountainous views.  Cactus galore.  Arizona is one beautiful state!  I had the pleasure of working in Prescott Valley the other week and then took a mini-trip to Sedona.  Marvin and I have always talked about taking a weekend trip to Sedona but it just hadn’t panned out.  So since I was staying only an hour away, a few coworkers and I took a road trip to Sedona.  It was probably the quickest trip ever though, we pretty much drove there, had a drink and drove back.  Here are some pictures I took of the trip!

A beautiful lake in Prescott Valley.

Bacon cupcakes at the Prescott Brewing Company.  Best idea ever.

Driving through mountains on our way to Sedona.  Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving and taking pictures simultaneously.  I was in the passenger seat.

Breathtaking.

Reminded me of our trip to Red Rock Canyon!


Little mini cactus things!

 

Loving this shot with the moon in view.

Sedona, we made it!!

Sweet Shot Day

I love taking pictures of flowers, they make great subjects!

Our only stop in Sedona, a little coffee shop.

And on the way home, I finally got some more pictures of cacti galore!  That was my goal for the week.  🙂

    I live in Phoenix and I have to admit I’ve never been to Prescott before. Sedona is indeed a beautiful place! Next time you go, you should go on the Pink Jeep Tour. It’s so much fun!

    You know I’ve always wanted to visit Sedona. I wish I could make a day trip of it like you (but Miami’s a tad too far)! The shot with the moon and the one right below it are really nice! I’d love to take my camera out there. Thanks for the inspiration!
