Being in California now certainly has its perks. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Arizona twice since I’ve been out here and it’s wonderful how much more accessible some of our National Parks are versus living in Chicago/The Midwest. I went to Phoenix for a trip with friends and to Sedona for my dear friend’s wedding. We also took a quick drive up to see the Grand Canyon because Matt and a few others in our group had never been. It was so cold and there was still snow on the ground the day that we went! Both trips were really outdoors focused and it was so much fun to see friends and family on both trips and spend time in nature :)
I just wanted to share some of the photos we snapped on our trips and links to the places we hiked. Feel free to pin this post for future reference!
