Danielle: Grand Canyon and Sedona

Last week I took a little hiatus from studying for my final to meet up with my friends Monica and Landon in Arizona. If you have never been to the Grand Canyon before, I HIGHLY recommend it! I don't think I had any real expectations for what it would be like, but it was phenomenal. Truly breathtaking. 

Did you know the canyon is 1,840 MILLION YEARS OLD. Crazy!

Showing off my sweet dance moves.

This shot was taken at sunset. We attended a concert at dusk, and the woman in the corner of this shot was playing an ancient Japanese flute. Soooooooo coooool.

Monica was our resident chef for the weekend. Check out that camp-chic look!

During our travels we stumbled across "Bedrock". It was this absolutely ridiculous park filled with Flintstones paraphernalia that must have been built 30 years ago. We had a blast.

I didn't get to capture many photos of Sedona because I was driving which is a huge bummer. The red rock there is gorgeous and I would love to spend some more time there.

This was our campsite before we got set up. We slept on sand which was super nice and soft!

Back on the road to California...

Since I drove through Palm Springs, I tried to capture the famous windmills. Again, I was driving, so it is kind of a fuzzy shot! Hope you enjoyed the photos. Stay tuned for upcoming posts about a few things I picked up along the way, some things since then, and then a little "dumpster diving". (yay!)

I live in AZ, though just for a couple of years. I've been to the GC three times now, but these are awesome photos. Looks like a great trip! Thanks so much for your comment on my blog today!

I've never been to the Grand Canyon... but have wanted to for SO LONG! These photos are gorgeous and have just bumped it up a few spaces on my To Do list!

Looks like you had an amazing mini vacay! xx
