I love red rocks in the US of A. They make me feel so little tiny in front of Mother Nature. Magnificent. Amazing. During my last US road trip, I got to see a lot of national parks in Utah, Colorado and Arizona where there are so many red rocks and they impressed me so much.
This year spring trip, I did not plan to visit any parks. My relative spontaneously decided to take me to Slide Rock State Park located in Sedona, AZ for a day trip. It was a cloudy and rainy day. We checked weather forecast and still went there. I had to fly out on the following day though.
Again, red rocks never fail me. They are still amazing. With rains, that red color got darker and brought out a new look. Plus, we experienced hails while checking out Slide Rock State Park. Cold and wet weather did not allow us to stay there that long enought to go further upstream. It was a cool quick trip with my relative. I enjoyed spending time to see a new place and learn from them a lot in term of life perspective.
Slide Rock State Park is a state park of Arizona, USA, taking its name from a natural water slide formed by the slippery bed of Oak Creek. The park is located in Oak Creek Canyon 7 miles north of Sedona – Wikipedia
