Is that what you think when you hear of Sedona, Arizona? Red Rock Country
I believe it is true. The area is amazing!
After coming from the Grand Canyon I wonder what could compare. Well, I’m impressed with the red rock formations – that’s for sure.
VisitSedona 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.”
More 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. 🙂
I’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.
“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)
I 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,
