Arizona

I know this is a little delayed, but here is a little about my trip to Arizona. This was the first time I've ever visited Arizona. I really enjoy hiking so when I heard Sodona had beautiful hiking views it was clear, that was the first thing I wanted to do.
On our way to Cathedral Rock we passed by many other hiking trails, here is 
Bell Rock. We passed by "Snoopy Rock" which is said to look like Snoopy when lying on his house but I saw it to late to take a clear picture.

After our 8 mile hike we needed to cool down a bit so we headed to Oak creek Canyon.

It's about 2 miles or so to get to the creek from the parking area. 

After we cooled down a bit it was time to eat! 
We ate at Oak Creek Brewery. I ordered a veggie beer brat, I don't know if i was just really hungry but it was sooooo good. 

If you're planning a trip to Arizona I recommend going to Sedona, here are some things you need to know and should have for your hikes. 
Hiking trails can be steep, be prepared for a work out. 
Rocks can be slippery, be prepared with the right shoes. Make sure your shoes have a grip on the bottom and are not worn out. 
Bring a hat, the sun can be strong.
CamelBak recommended, you'll be really thirsty. I took 2 bottles of water and a Gatoraid and it was just enough.
