Sedona is everything everyone told us it would be: beautiful, stunning scenery, red dirt, red rocks, world class mountain biking, a crowded touristy town full of hippie like people looking for the vortex, and rich folk vacationing. What I feel about Sedona is pretty much the same as I feel about South Lake Tahoe. Both areas are beyond beautiful and have great mountain biking, I just can’t stand the endless stream of cars and stops lights in the town. Thankfully it’s fairly easy in both places to avoid the town.
What really made this stop wonderful is we know a couple from San Diego, Matt and Timoni, who now live in Sedona. There’s nothing like having a local guide you around the trails, escort you to a beautiful boon dock spot, and direct you to the real unknown gems in the area. And on top of that we had a great group of friends from San Diego join us for a long weekend, Mike, Chris, Laurie, and old man Birch. And of course R is here! He’s tagging along on our trip till he wears out his welcome.
There was one minor problem. I cracked my seat tube on the second to last day of biking. A slight bummer since one of the main focuses of this trip is mountain biking. So I missed the last ride with the group, and from what Amelia and the group said it was quite a ride.
So I’m getting a new frame, and will definitely be back in the saddle for the Hurricane stop, if not hopefully before. Next stop the Grand Canyon. We love reading your comments, so please keep them coming. Enjoy the pics.
Great Post! Damn that was a good time! We’ll have to do it again next year. Thanks for instigating the first annual Sedona trip. Very glad to hear that you have a solution to the bike situation. See you in Hurricane!!!
Thanks for another fine 3 minute vacation.
I am glad you all had such a great time, and sorry I couldn’t make it. What a beautiful place, beautify pictures and beautiful people.
You sure summed that trip up perfectly! So many great pictures and so much fun together….as usual 🙂
I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your pics and updates, warms my heart and makes me smile! Love you guys!
I will be thinking of you guys as I head back to work May 1st. : ( well it is only 6 weeks then the summer! Ryan and I are planning a Sedona trip in the fall, parents will watch wee baby Archer. Which is better, Sedona or Moab? I miss riding with you crazy kids! I am back on the bike and feeling good. Keep the pictures coming so I can live vicariously through you.
Looks like you created a wonderful memory and had a great time. The pics are amazing! Sonja and I will have to put Sedona on our list.
P.S. I think you guys would look real cute pulling your Airstream with a pink Jeep 🙂
It was so much fun having you guys boon-dock in Sedona. I can’t believe it was 7 nights! Time has gone by way too fast. See you again soon!
Great pictures. We used to love going there to enjoy the beauty and to “feel” the vortex. It is a special place, even with the stop signs, pink jeeps, people and more people.
Really “ridiculous” red rocks “rad-riding.” AirHeads wanna go there too!
NICE BLOG AS USUAL KEEP ON HAVING FUN.LOVE, RUTH
Wonderful Pictures! Wish we were there.
