Just a short two hour drive north of Scottsdale, Arizona is Sedona. Outside the city of Sedona you can also enjoy one of Arizona’s natural treasures called “red rock country”. Sedona offers a myriad of activities for its visitors. However, the best part of the short trip is arriving at Red Rock State Park. Since I live in the east coast, I was impressed with the landscape. Although arid, it is simply so beautiful.
Red Rock State Park is a 286 acre nature preserve and environmental education center with stunning scenery, native vegetation and hills of red rock. The state park features a red sandstone canyon and you must plan to go. I took these photos on a hot and humid day. You just got to go and experience this in person.
While in Alaska with my husband, we took a train to the Kenai Peninsula. It was summer time and the landscape was stunning everywhere you go. Our final destination was Seward, one of Alaska’s oldest and most scenic communities. Although Seward is wonderful, getting there was a treat. For several hours we discovered just a fraction of the magnificent beauty of this state. We saw baby bears with mama bear, lots of wild animals, the stunning natural beauty of its mountains, rivers, lakes and of course, several glaciers. I want to share with you this photo that I took from the running train. Tip: Don’t forget to put Alaska in your bucket list. I did. Checked!
