Sedona, Arizona… the first place we took Gimp after we purchased her AND let me tell you what! Sedona is incredible! The scenery is breathtaking. This little city is on my top 10 (so far) of places I love. If you haven’t been – please go visit. The hiking is fantastic (and so are the ATV/Jeep trails) –they even have a Whole Foods in town!
We stayed in Camp Verde, Arizona because the RV park was super nice and half the price. This is also the place we finished our lithium and solar install.
We explored Sedona with Gimp – there are ATV trails from the RV park we stayed at all the way to Sedona (& it took half the time). It was perfect and it was also, unplanned. Serendipity at its finest! 😀 To add to our luck, we had great neighbors who gave us a grand tour of trails not so known.
Schnebly Hill Road is not one of the lesser known trails. Everybody who goes to Sedona and is into off-roading knows about this trail AND Broken Arrow. If you don’t know them, click here. It’s an awesome trail but it does get crowded on weekends.
Exploring in a RZR has got to be the best way to see nature in you don’t have 12 hours a day, every day. You are able to see more in less time than it would take to hike it. Although, hiking is still one of my favorite things to do but it does take a lot of time. If you’re on a time constraint, consider renting or buying a RZR if you’re into this type of thing.
None of the trails we did in Sedona were ‘hard’ per se. Some parts of each trail are hard but those are generally the obstacles that are completely optional to do.
There was one hike I managed to get Blake to do and that was Devils Bridge. Devils Bridge is the largest natural sandstone arch located in the Sedona area of the Coconino National Forest. I’ve been wanting to do this hike FOREVER!! So, we took Gimp to the trail head and then hiked. It was AWESOME! Blake didn’t think it was as great as I did – he’s afraid of heights. He didn’t go out on the arch with me.. but he did manage to take the picture… sort of. There are certain angles & spots to take the photo that actually show what you’re standing on and that it is indeed… an arch! Blake just wasn’t into moving around on the side of a cliff. I can’t blame the poor boy. He did good all things considered. 🙂
