Day 3 of my solo trip in Arizona began early with a 5:00 AM sunrise hike in Sedona. One of the main reasons I picked the Hotel Arabella was because of the access to hiking trails. If you’ve been to Sedona, you know that parking at trail heads can be like the wild west. I was so lucky that not only was it just a mile hike out to a beautiful spot near Snoopy Rock for sunrise, but that I saw not one other person on the trail the entire time. While popular trails are popular for a reason, I really have enjoyed going on some of the less popular trails in areas where you can just enjoy nature on your own. This sunrise hike was one of those moments.
Overall my first day was such a joy. Once I touched down in Arizona, I was so much less nervous about traveling alone and just excited. I got to feel the warmth from the sun which Pennsylvania hadn’t had much of before I left, got to visit two new National Monuments, and visited one of my favorite National Parks. Day one was a great success.
