Joe and I went to Arizona at the beginning of October and I wanted to share a few pictures from our trip!
We started out in Flagstaff and headed to the Grand Canyon from there. Our first view of the canyon was awful – it was zero visibility because of fog/cloud cover. After waiting 30 minutes and driving down further we got our first glimpse! Definitely a must-see since pictures don’t do it justice.
The next day we went to Antelope Canyon, which is in Page, AZ almost to the top of the state. You may recognize the canyon since it’s a common desktop background / stock photo. It was at the top of my list for our Arizona trip and it did not disappoint!
Since there’s an upper and lower canyon, we had some time in between to visit Horseshoe Canyon nearby. It was beautiful, yet also stressed me out because of the cliff edge. Girls were doing headstands next to the edge – anything for the instagram!
The next morning we met up with friends in Pheonix and hiked Camelback Mountain nearby. It was so hard but worth it! I can’t thank my LL Bean hiking boots enough – they were incredible during the entire trip with all the hiking/climbing we did.
The last day, Joe and his friends went to the Cardinals football game while my friend Erika and I visited Scottsdale’s Desert Botanical Garden. It was all cactus and succulents. Because all the plants were placed purposeful throughout the garden, it was stunning! I wouldn’t think desert plants could be so beautiful.
Thanks for reading! We can’t wait to go back to Arizona and want to visit more of the red rock part of the state next time.
