Joel: The last part of our trip was Sedona. If you know me, you know it's no secret that I don't prefer Arizona's landscape to other places back east, but I do love Sedona.
Right now Wendy and I are obsessed with acai bowls, and we make them all the time at home. There are two places in Sedona that only serve acai bowls, so we've been hitting those up each morning. We came to Sedona for less than 24 hours very recently and we did not get to see much, although we did go on one awesome hike. This time, we were able to see more of the town and shopping areas and still get one hike in. It was a shorter hike, but still very beautiful. Thankfully, the weather in Sedona was not as bad as our weather apps kept telling us. We were expecting rain, but as you can see from the pictures, the sun was out.
Wendy: We hiked to the end of the maintained trail and then Joel and Kendra decided to explore a bit further. The first picture below is taken at the end of the trail, and shows Joel and Kendra coming back down from their extended hike. The second picture was taken by Kendra further up.
Wendy: The same store with the singing bowl also had the item below, which I was desperate to own. However, the $33,000 price tag was just over my budget for this vacation. The macaws are made entirely from various stones, and they are beautiful! There were smaller versions, but even the smallest was several hundred dollars. They are on my wish list if any of my super-wealthy friends are ever in Sedona around my birthday in August. ;-)
