One of several celebrities who promised to leave the country should Donald Trump become President instead turned to a popular Arizona destination after the election.

Dunham, a vocal supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, posted a picture to her Instagram account of her hiking in Sedona's famous red rocks.

"Asked the Canyon for some guidance," Dunham wrote with the post. "She said this week is going to be revolutionary, and so I threw my arms open and said 'bring it.'"

The star of HBO's 'Girls' went on to reference Clinton's loss, saying she was glad her first smile of the week was caught on camera.

Dunham, along with Whoopi Goldberg and others, vowed to leave the country if Trump beat Clinton because of statements he made about undocumented immigrants, women and Muslims.

Trump carried Arizona and its 11 electoral votes , though the determination wasn't made until after he had been projected to already reach the required 270 to win the election.
