Day 2 – Sedona AZ

We went to Church in Sedona this morning at Christ Church Wesleyan Church.
After Church we stopped for groceries to get food for the next fews days. We then headed back to the hotel to pack up for our day hike up to the top of Brins Ridge. We started up at 11am.

The views around the top of Brins Ridge were incredible. You could almost see a 360 degree view from the top of the ridge.
