Earlier this year, I had exactly a half day in Sedona, Arizona. It was a surreal experience, as being from the Northeast I’ve never seen landscapes like this in person. It did not disappoint, except for cloudy skies and rain after lunch, which ended my day early. By far, the highlight of the trip was the trip north towards Flagstaff. The smell of the mountains (pine and juniper?) and the green landscape just miles from the dry arid land that I witnessed just a half hour south was amazing.
