Travel Diaries: Sedona Jeep Tours

 I'm feeling incredibly nostalgic for the desert today so I wanted share a cool trip my sisters and I took last winter while we were in Arizona. For those of you who have never been to the southwest it is a different kind of beautiful and nothing can really compare to it. These photos don't even begin to do it justice. I've seen a lot of pretty sunsets and landscapes, but nothing really can ever compare to the Arizona desert.
 Compared to much of the eastern half of the United States, the west is majority public land. This means that you can take you can venture out to almost anywhere and it's perfectly legal. No one will come and tell you you're trespassing and need to get off of the property. This allows you to see some really breath-taking and amazing views that you might not see if the land was privately owned.

My sisters, Alli and Caroline, had really been wanting to go to Sedona and take a Pink Jeep Tour into the desert after they went to the Grand Canyon last summer and saw advertisements for it. We had lived in Arizona for much of our childhood and gone back several times since, but never really took the opportunity to make the most of all that Arizona has to offer. Sedona is only about a two-hour drive north of Phoenix where we were staying so it was an easy day trip for us to make. Thanks to Terrs for being our chauffeur.  
 Pink Jeep Tours are one of the highlights of visiting Sedona because of all of the red rock and desert that surrounds this small northern town. The tours leave about every 20 minutes and the guide drives you out to the middle of nowhere in the desert where you can look anywhere and see the desert and its beauty. We were really excited to have been able to book the sunset tour, which allowed us to be in the desert as the sun was setting behind the mountains. One of the things I think all three of us can agree on is that we miss the sunsets in Arizona. I see Instagram pictures or snap-chats from friends and family who live there and think they don't know how lucky they are to see those everyday.

The Pink Jeep Tour guides are a really cool part of the experience because they are incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the desert and offer lots of interesting tidbits of information. They are also really cool with making their rounds to take photos and panoramas for everyone on the tour so they have the memories to take back home. It's pretty rare that my sisters and I are able to get a photo with all three of us so we gladly accepted the tour guide's offer.

This was one of my favorite memories of the trip because I got to spend the entire day with my sisters. We all live in different states and have different things going on so it's pretty rare that we get to do things with all three of us. I was really happy at the end of the day that they convinced me to go on the Jeep Tour that day.
