Sedona, one of the most iconic cities in Arizona, lies just 1.5 hours north of Prescott. With it’s towering red rock formations, hundreds of miles of hiking trails, and bustling village Sedona is the perfect weekend getaway or day trip for Embry Riddle students. Check out the video below as Colton show’s off some of Sedona’s beauty!
In the following blog, Colton takes you on a visual journey through some of Prescott’s most iconic scenery. You can click on the image to view a larger version.
First we start off with Thumb Butte, one of the highest points in Prescott.
Thumb Butte and the surrounding area looks just as stunning in the Winter
Next, we take a look at the lakes near to Embry-Riddle campus (Watson and Willow Lake).
My friends and I often take our multirotors out to the lake for some aerial photos and video.

One of my favorite spots in Prescott is Spruce Mountain Lookout. From the top of the mountain you are rewarded with a beautiful view of Prescott below.
Another hidden gym is Prescott’s Lynx Creek system. In winter/spring the creek flows with snowmelt and produces gorgeous scenery.
Our final destination is Prescott’s Downtown Courthouse square. The square presents beautiful colors in the fall as well as spring, and in the winter the entire courthouse and surroundings are covered with Christmas lights. For more info on that see this blog -> https://riddlenationaz.erau.edu/tag/lights/
Included below are a few more photos that showcase some random but amazing scenery surrounding Prescott, Arizona.

Hello all, VLogger Colton Campbell here! Back for my sophomore year at Embry-Riddle Prescott, and needed to take a study break! Touting my trusty quadcopter, I went and explored (from the air) Granite Basin recreational area in the Prescott National forest. With a gorgeous sunset and beautiful scenery, I couldn’t help but share in the spoils captured from the evening.
This is part 1 of a multi-part series of Exploring Prescott, so stay tuned for more soon!

If you are anything like me, the anticipation of going into college has you asking a lot of questions. “What will it be like to be on my own?” “Am I going to make close friends?” “Will I have any free time at all?”
I could sit here and try my best to write down my experiences from my Freshman year, but that sounds pretty boring. So instead I made this video! Check it out to see my Freshman experiences and tips!
As you can see, I had an absolute blast my first year in college. I can’t wait to see what adventures and opportunities I take part in in Fall 2015!
