Sedona is this vortex of good vibes and in our experience the only way to receive those good vibes is by purging all the negative ones you absent mindedly carry with you.
We finally arrived in Sedona only to run into people everywhere, the hot desert sun beating down on us and a very antsy pup. We needed tacos and margs and shade and our campground STAT.
Nothing seemed to be working out like we thought it should and we were stressing out. We finally came to this moment of realization that we needed to just let it be. From that moment on everything started falling into place and Sedona turned into this magical place that recharged us.
The restaurant was pet friendly, the food was delicious, the margs fantastic and the tequila shots even better. I couldn't picture turning 24 any other way than spending the night camping in Oak Creek Canyon.
