Finally in the Arizona series is one of my favorite places we visited on the roadtrip; Slide Rock State Park.
Located a little north of Sedona is this gorgeous haven from the hot Arizona sun: a natural waterpark surrounded by some of Sedona’s infamous red rocks.
After paying a $10 entrance fee, we walked in and began to explore this beautiful state park.
The water is freezing, the rocks are burning hot, and the breeze is cool and refreshing. We wandered around this place for not too long, as we had to knock a few other places off our list, but hanging out here was one of the best hours I’ve ever spent.
The gorgeous scenery this place provides is really unlike anything I’ve ever seen, not to mention the positive energy which radiates from the red rocks. Being in the heart of Coconino National Forest is also always a plus.
We scuffled up the sides of the cliffs, getting a better vantage point. We watched kids, teenagers, parents, and even elderly folks jump off a great little cliff straight into the water. It felt amazing to be high up, watching over the families having the time of their lives.
By the end of it, we were covered in red dust from the rocks, which must have rubbed their positivity off on me, because as we left, I felt as though I was in a state of pure bliss. I can’t wait to go back to Sedona and visit this place again!
