Weekend Sedona journey – The Fitnessista


Hello associates! How’s the week going? I hope you’re having a stunning morning. We’re again on the town after a magical lengthy weekend in Sedona. Sedona is one among my favourite spots in the entire world, and I’m at all times grateful for the chance to get away and revel in some picturesque hikes and adventures with the fam. It was our first time taking Maisey on trip with us and he or she was an enormous fan. I feel she’s satisfied that each automobile journey is an epic journey.

 

(Her first puppaccino and he or she was into.it.)

We left on Friday morning and visitors.was.insane. Often it might get fairly congested, however this was next-level dangerous. As a substitute of taking 3 hours and 45 min to get there, it took 8 1/2 hours! AHHHHH. The ladies are journey champions however we had been all SO able to get out of the automobile. We picked up Picazzo’s on our method into city (it was glorious) and crashed on the Airbnb. In an effort to attempt one thing new, this was our first time not staying at L’Auberge de Sedona. Whereas I undoubtedly missed the comfort and opulent vibe, our Airbnb was tremendous cute and gave us a whole lot of flexibility with our journey.

Some pics:

Once we’re in Sedona, we usually rotate between three requirements: out of doors adventures/hikes, procuring, and consuming. What extra do you actually need, proper?!

A number of the out of doors adventures we loved:

– Slide Rock. Slide Rock is a must-do you probably have kiddos (or when you’re only a kiddo at coronary heart). Pure slides are constructed into the rocks within the creek and there are a number of alternatives to slip, swim, and soar off cliffs. The water is FREEZING however when you get in, you get used to it pretty shortly. Liv and I went on the large rock slide collectively at the very least 10 occasions haha. Professional tip: put on water footwear. Most of the rocks are coated with algae, which may get slippery. We additionally pack up a cooler with snacks, drinks, sunscreen, and many others. They’ve a cute market which sells meals and comfort objects, however it’s nearer to the doorway than the precise park. You may take a look at extra pics and tips on Slide Rock here.

– Mountaineering! We did three attractive hikes whereas we had been there: West Fork Path (we’ve carried out this one earlier than), Bell Rock (new to us!), and Little Horse Path (additionally new to us).

West Fork Path is lush and shaded, with a number of possibilities to cross water. (Your toes will get moist!!) It’s a straightforward, pretty flat hike, surrounded by wildflowers and timber, and pet and kid-friendly. That is  a must-do as a result of the surroundings is so distinctive and beautiful.

Bell Rock path goes up into the Bell Rock vortex. Sedona is residence to 4 vitality vortexes, that are frequent mountain climbing spots. The vortexes are believed to advertise vitality and therapeutic, and a few individuals really feel tingling of their our bodies as they change into nearer to the vortexes, or extraordinarily calm and relaxed. The vortexes also can have an effect on sleep! I’ve discovered that my first night time in Sedona, I at all times sleep tremendous frivolously and have bizarre goals! After the primary night time, I sleep extraordinarily nicely. It was our first vortex hike and I used to be shocked how excessive we had been capable of get! The children wished to maintain going however I vetoed them after we acquired to a sure level. If it had been as much as them, we’d go to the very prime!

(Heads up that some these pics seem like we’re standing near the sting, however we’re a secure distance away. I’m too paranoid lol.) This path is dog-friendly and well-marked, however when you get to the steeper parts, it’s important to make your personal path to get increased.

Little Horse Path is a straightforward out-and-back with lovely views (heads up that it doesn’t have a whole lot of shade). It was scenic and dog-friendly; we’ll undoubtedly be going again!

We additionally shopped a bit – love the outlets at Tlaquepaque and the Middle for New Age – and ate all.the.issues. Sedona has some unimaginable eating places; many with patio choices and breathtaking views.

The place we ate:

Creekside (informal spot and the meals is persistently nice)

Additionally they have a canine menu. Maisey had steak tartare with egg and can by no means be the identical.

Chocolatree (vegetarian cafe with a housemade chocolate part and every thing is gluten-free. It’s principally my dream come true.)

I had an adaptogenic tea with chaga and reishi, a vegan brownie, and a inexperienced goddess salad

Dinner at Javelina Cantina. Very cute patio and glorious service, however the meals was so-so. Simply go for the chips, guac, and margaritas.

Dinner at Secret Backyard – at all times contemporary and good. We shared the hummus appetizer, I loved the salmon for my entree, and we devoured some chocolate mousse cake for dessert

Takeout breakfast from Crimson Rock Cafe 

(peep the three lb cinnamon roll aka one of the best restaurant cinnamon roll I’ve ever had. Who knew that walnuts and raisins take issues excessive.)

Thai Spices (takeout on the best way residence. It was INSANELY wonderful and contemporary. I extremely advocate the inexperienced curry rooster.)

It was the proper little getaway stuffed with all of my favourite issues. Regardless that I’m again to the same old work and life craziness, I really feel refreshed. 🙂

Have you ever been to Sedona? Any favourite mountain climbing trails or eating places? Please shout them out within the feedback so we will test them out subsequent time we’re on the town!
