Red Rock Country

Sedona Rocks 1Is that what you think when you hear of Sedona, Arizona?  Red Rock Country

I believe it is true.  The area is amazing!

Sedona signAfter coming from the Grand Canyon I wonder what could compare.  Well, I’m impressed with the red rock formations – that’s for sure.

Sedona Rocks 2VisitSedona tells us:  “Multi-hued stone formations jut upwards from the high desert floor creating a vivid, mesmerizing setting that changes hourly with the light. When USA Weekend compiled their Most Beautiful Places in America list, Sedona claimed the top spot.”

Sedona Rocks 6More information is available at http://visitsedona.com.  Check out their list of 100 things to do in Sedona.  I didn’t experience most of them but maybe you have already.  I just enjoyed visiting and photographing some of the area.  That’s what happens when one is on a traveling schedule trying to drive as much as possible to highlight as much as possible. 🙂

Sedona Rocks 4I’m a pretty simple person and enjoyed just walking through the little shops as well, taking in as much of the culture and interesting information that time would allow.  I love the native American displays and history there.

According to Wikipedia the Paleo-Indians, who were big game hunters, were the first documented humans in the Sedona area, possibly between 11,500 and 9000 B.C.

Sedona Rocks 3“The red rocks of Sedona are formed by a unique layer of rock known as the Schnebly Hill Formation. The Schnebly Hill Formation is a thick layer of red to orange-colored sandstone found only in the Sedona vicinity. The sandstone, a member of the Supai Group, was deposited during the Permian Period.”  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedona,_Arizona)

Sedona Rocks 5I recalled some of the picturesque images I’ve seen in movies as I drove through Sedona.  That was pretty neat to see the sites firsthand.

Sedona is certainly another place to revisit – with more time to take it all in.

Love and Blessings,

Ron

    1. Thanks so much! I can imagine how you would miss not being around Sedona. No doubt you could write a book about the area. I didn’t take any hiking trails but they seem to be well occupied. 🙂
