Grand Canyon and Sedona

Friends and Family,

As most of you know this was the last leg of my little adventure. After Costa Rica, I came back and took part in my best friends wedding the following weekend. After that a few of my close friends from college (Rob and Pete) got in a car later that week and ventured over to northern Arizona to take on the Grand Canyon. Below you will see a number of pictures of the Grand Canyon and Sedona. Pretty cool stuff!

After our long drive to northern Arizona we stayed at the World Famous International Youth Hostel. The folks here recommended we head over to Sedona before going to the Grand Canyon...so we did

Here are the fellas in Sedona

It was a hot day in Sedona so we took a dip at the Grasshopper point

We then took a 4 mile hike into the wilderness and came upon this grotesque creature

After our encounter with this creature I decided to bust out some freestyle (aka aggressive) walking moves to scare him away...luckily no one got hurt from these actions

After a long day in the wild we found a rock, sat down and drank in the beautiful sunset at Sedona

The next day we took on the Canyon...and I can tell you it was quite Grand!

Since we liked Sedona so much we made it back and hiked Cathedral Rock. The park rangers told us not to do it since it was dangerous but we thought it was a good idea...until it started raining when we were at the top

Luckily we made it down safe after Rob led us astray halfway down the mountain.

Well this is my last entry from this epic journey. It's been an amazing ride and I'm happy I was able to share it with you. Now I'm back home, looking for a job, enjoying life in my backyard and thinking about my next adventure

Thanks again for all the support and I'll see you guys soon!
