Man, it’s only been about 3 weeks since winter break, and it already feels like this trip happened forever ago. Well, here’s the last post of my travel series to Arizona, and of course we had to visit some of the iconic rock monuments that Arizona has to offer. One of my favorite parts of being in Arizona was being able to drive along the road and randomly stopping on the side of the road to just take in the spectacular scenery right before us. Since we stayed around Flagstaff, we didn’t have the chance to go further up north towards the border of Utah to visit some of the more popular national monuments, but I’ll add that to the bucket list for now and hopefully one day, I’ll return with some more blog posts of these gorgeous places!
Oh, you know, casual. Just some rocks on the side of a parking lot. But really, what other parking lot have you been to that just has this view on the side?
As I was driving, I noticed a subtle rainbow in the clouds, and to my amazement, it was actually a part of this enormous rainbow halo surrounding the sun! WHOA.
I would love for this to be my backyard.
A view of Courthouse Butte on the drive back home.
And you’re looking at 300 million years of geological history. Mindblowing? Yes.
I didn’t realize just how much I would come to appreciate places like Arizona that seem a lot more hidden and somewhat isolated, but the history and scenery in this place is so incredible. As always, I’m grateful for the opportunities to go out and see new things and take in all the beauty around us. Thanks for reading, hope your day is wonderful! ♥
