Sedona is an Arizona desert town near Flagstaff that’s surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls and pine forests. It’s noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community. Uptown Sedona is dense with New Age shops, spas and art galleries. On the town’s outskirts, numerous trailheads access Red Rock State Park, which offers bird-watching, hiking and picnicking spots.

I’m currently here doing some day hikes. Here are some pictures from my hikes today on the Airport Loop trail (moderate, 3.2 miles), and the Cathedral Rock trail (Only 1.2 miles but HARD with lots of climbing/ rock scrambling).
