Sedona

Nobody really does trip reports anymore, but maybe someone will stumble across this one. Matt did an awesome report from Sedona last year, but I guess it does not hurt to have another report from such a beautiful area. As usual, my report will be mostly photos with just a little commentary.


Our base was the Inn of Sedona, which is a Best Western Plus . Location was great, staff was very nice, breakfasts were good and the views from outside our room were wonderful. The fire pits are a nice touch. Both sunrise and sunset can be enjoyed from the hotel.

A couple of mornings I got up early, got out of the room and took a drive. The area was all new to me, so I was never sure what I would come across.

One morning I went down Dry Creek Road towards Boynton Canyon. As I approached the canyon I saw the hot air balloons. I thought I would keep an eye on them while driving around.






I drove further down the canyon to see if I could get some closer shots as the hovered around the red rocks. I stopped at a small parking lot to watch for a little while. As it turned out, that area was where the balloons were going to land. A few spotter trucks with trailers showed up to prepared for the landings.

I took a few photos from that location.





There was one hovering overhead, and as it started to descend it appeared to be coming down right on top of me. I was wondering how I was going to explain the damage to my rental car.





Luckily it landed about 50 ft. away. A few other balloons touched down close also.

The area around Sedona is stunning. My photos do not do it justice.
