We rode in these crazy – yes, pink – jeeps with tires like I’ve never seen.
The first part of the trip took us around the scenic rock formations. Our awesome guide, John, is an Arizona native, so he gave us the deep background on everything Sedona. I asked approximately 598,196 questions, and he probably regrets telling me he is from the area.
That’s Smooch Rock. So cute, no?
After the Scenic Rim, we moved onto the Broken Arrow Tour. Pink Jeeps are the only vehicles allowed on this part of the trail. And for good reason.
The jeep drives up and around and down the rocks. At a 45 degree angle.
There might have been a lot of screaming. Mostly from me. (If you want to see for yourself, check out this video around the 40 second mark.)
I wasn’t sure what to expect when we signed up for these tours. But when I go on vacation, I like to do things I can’t do at home. I definitely don’t do any offroading around the streets of Northern Virginia. The Pink Jeep tours are the best way to see Sedona.
The night before our trip, I panicked and wanted to back out. I worried about leaving Kate for the first time and I don’t particularly like the hassle of airplane travel. But the morning we left, I surrendered to those feelings of anxiety, and figured if we were going to spend time and money on a trip, I’d better go all in. And we had the best time. And I’d do it all again.
