    What I’m doing in this picture:  I am hiking in Coconino National Forest in Sedona, AZ with my family.  It was about 110 degrees in this photo, and while we were scorched, we really enjoyed the beauty of the red rock formations.  My favorite part of this day was we did a jeep tour right after this picture was taken – super fun and a great way to see the landscape.  The best part?  I found out about the tour from a brochure in our hotel!
