This year Joe and I were lucky enough to have one Christmas in Flagstaff, AZ and another in Santa Fe, NM. Funnily enough, these two towns share similar climate and small-town feel. While we were in Flagstaff, we woke up to over a foot of snow. Though it snowed all of New Years Eve and ruined our New Years plans, we were both glad to get a “White Christmas” before we headed back to ever-sunny San Diego.
On the tail end of a recent trip out to Flagstaff, Kendall’s sister invited us along to the new hot spot near Flagstaff for getting out of the summer heat. While it is a long and rough dirt road in, you are rewarded with a surprisingly large amount of water and beautiful hiking and rock formations as you walk along the creek. The centerpiece of the trip is the waterfall and swimming hole, which is slightly over a miles’ hike from the closest parking lot (there are several, so keep driving until the road ends if you’re heading to the falls). Of course, we took the GoPro out to film the action – click through to see some highlights from the trip.
