Pit stop at Crescent Moon picnic area as this is where to get some better pictures/view of the Cathedral Rock. The most famous landmark in Sedona. But here, it's just a guy chilling and enjoying life.

Red Rock Magic Trolley. They took us throughout Sedona and explained what each of the mountains are and their names! Pretty educational tour with some pretty corny jokes.

Kachina Woman rock formation in Boynton Canyon. Apparently this is a vortex site, which is a site where people have reportedly felt inspired by a beneficial source of natural energy. Sedona's got multiple different vortex sites. Unfortunately, didn't have enough time to go visit one and experience it for myself.

Sedona is amazing :)

Spontaneity at it's best. 15 minutes helicopter tour decided on a whim. But totally worth it!

I sat in the middle in the back, so didn't get the best view.

Devil's Bridge. It's a trail that leads to that natural arch. Must try next time!

This is the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village. It features art galleries, craft shops in this cobblestoned area giving it a decorative touch feel.

The only picture of the night from the star gazing tour thanks to Brian! He's got some amazing photography skills.

Sadly, didn’t get to take any pictures during the Star Gazing Tour. But doubt that it would’ve turned out any good. You just gotta go see it for yourself! Sedona has been named an international dark sky! Meaning, you can see the stars at night with no problem! Just look up and the sky is chock-full of them!
