Being two early birds, we were eager to get up and explore the beautiful area of Sedona in the morning. Our early morning explorations generally followed a soak in the hot tub and breakfast, but this particular morning we wanted to catch the sunrise and I’m so happy we did. We wound our way up a tiny steep hill of a road and found ourselves parked inside an escarpment from which to explore our immediate surroundings as well as a lookout on the town. It thrilled me to wake and be greeted by these gorgeous red rocks each morning. This second image you can see a hot air balloon making its rise. I counted 4 by the time we left this spot.
