As the weather gets stranger and pandemonium of the world swells closer to an apocalypse, we decided to voyage out to Arizona to enjoy Mother Nature before it's too late.
Home to some of the most beautiful red sandstone formations and hiking trails, our first stop was Sedona.
Word on the desert highways was Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness hosts an extraordinary view, so we filled our water bottles and began our ascent.
After a trek just shy of two miles, we made it to the largest stone arch in Red Rock Country, Devil's Bridge. As much as we wanted to spend the whole day there, we advanced northbound to our next stop, Antelope Canyon.
As usual, our G Pen Pro was present to compliment the venture.
Known to the Navajo as Tsé bighánílíní, which translates to "the place where water runs through rocks," Upper Antelope Canyon formed by flash floods and erosion over thousands of years, smoothing the sandstone into a remarkable passageway with walls reaching 120 ft.
In hopes of reaching the Grand Canyon by sunset, we drove south.
Designed by architect Mary Colter, the Desert View Watchtower is meant to resemble a watchtower of the Ancient Pueblo Peoples. Hopi artist Fred Kabotie painted murals throughout the structure that depicts mythology and religious ceremonies of the Hopi culture.
One of the most celebrated and studied natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon boasts an immensity over a million acres, sustaining five of the seven life zones. It spreads 18 miles at its widest range and dips to 6,000 ft at its deepest point.
Monsoon season made sunsets exceptionally glorious.
