We drive through Arizona from south-east to north and visit mainly two regions: the surroundings of Sedona and Page. The small and lively town of Sedona is particularly well-known for the impressive red rock formations that surround it and its numerous pine forests.
We go on short hikes to some of the best viewpoints and discover thereby beautiful views of the area. We take a walk to the Birthing Cave, a cave carved in the rock with a breathtaking view on the surroundings. This cave was once a spiritual place of the Hopi natives where the women of this tribe used to give birth to their children. We also enjoy hiking Boynton Canyon at sunrise and the first rays of the sun appearing behind the still darkened rocks.
The Sedona area offers many walks and hikes. Due to lack of time, we were not able to explore them all. The most famous are Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Subway Cave and Devils Bridge. If you spend time in Sedona, you should explore some of them.
