Lovely break in Sedona, Arizona

We were so lucky to be invited to join our friends for a trip to Sedona last week!Previously I was never impressed with Sedona even though a lot of people are just love the area, but not this time!What a great mini vacation!
I enjoyed everything - our half day hiking trip & photo opportunities.This trip also was a great mix of nature, architecture at Tlaquepaque and shopping for souvenirs.We tried some gourmet pizza at Picazzo's. If you've never tried it, the toppings were ground lamb, wild mushrooms, spinach, Alfredo sauce, garlic and topped with Parmesan cheese. It was absolutely delicious, right after the hike it hit the spot with an ice cold beer!

The accommodation were perfect. We had a condo that butted up to the creek that was surrounded by huge old trees. You could hear the rushing stream just a few feet from the door and we were able to sit with our doors open and watch the colorful birds and lively squirrels all day long!

We had some perfect rainy weather which we miss living in a desert. This kept the temperature cooler, about in a mid seventies.

I came back home so refreshed and full of creative ideas! I've already ran to Michael's and Jo-Anns for some supplies. Guess what? They are putting Fall items for sale already! Guys, it mean we are almost to the end of summer!

So enjoy your warm weather while you still can!

Wonderful post and a trip! Nice photos, Tania! I have been in Sedona, alone, and I had sort of mystical, even I would say, sci-fiction experience. Some day I will write about it.

Looks like you had an amazing trip, it's always great when you come back from a break inspired and fired up.

I drove through Sedona once on a trip where we did Las Vegas, the Hooever Dam and the Grand Canyon. I fell in love with it and would love to have the opportunity to spend some real time there.

Wow, Yulia and Kathryn - so, you both were here in Sedona! So you know what I am talking about :) It is changed a lot since we've been here last time in 2007, I hardly could recognized it sometime! A lot more shopping plazas and a restaurants but the nature is still the same: wonderful!
