Sedona Arizona

For those of you who have not had the experience of visiting Sedona let me explain a little.  Sedona is located just south of Flagstaff AZ in a valley surrounded by rock outcrops and walls of rock.  In my opinion, having never been to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, I imagine Sedona is a little taste of what the view must be from there.

Everywhere you look in Sedona, there are beautiful rock "Mountains" you find yourself constantly looking up at.

I have had the pleasure of visiting many places, but all of them together do not come close to the magestic beauty of this valley.  In the rain, sun, morning, evening... no matter the time, there is always something magnificent to be looking at.

Here are some of the photos I took of this area.

No matter where you are in Sedona you can always see a rock outcrop called Bell Rock:

In the above photo:  Note the tree near the top.  I was always trying to find some way of giving the impression of the sheer size of the rock outcrop.  This tree, which is a large tree, gives you some of that impression.

On the south side of Sedona off on a little road, in the middle of a community setting is found this wonderful little church called Chruch of the Holy Cross.  It is built into the rock.  I am still sorry we didn't get the opportunity to visit the interior.

The following photo was taken from the Main Street of Sedona.  It really gives you the feel of the beauty that surrounds this city.

The Sedona Airport in located on top of one of the rock outcrops.  From this location you have a beautiful vantige point from which to see the city below:

And finally I took this photo of what, I believe, they call Cathedral Rock.  Amazing what the sunlight does as it bounces off the sides of these rocks.

Next Post will be Montazuma's Castle and Montazuma's Well.

Comments are always welcome.

    а person who finаlly knows what they're writing about on the web. You seriously understand how to bring a problem to light and make it worthwhile. A lot more people should really have a look at this and have an understanding of this side of the story. I can't believе уou're not more well-known, since you most really possess the gift.
