Sedona Sights

One day we decided to do a driving tour and check out some of the gorgeous red rock formations that make Sedona so special.

Our first stop was up at the airport. I don't know of any other city that has its airport on top of a mesa, but it makes a lot of sense.

Sedona is a very artsy town. When we stopped at a viewpoint on Schnebly Hill, there was an art class in session. I am in awe of artists since I have no ability in that area. However I can see how they would be inspired with views like these.

I'm not sure if this is mainly a church or a tourist attraction, but it is pretty cool how they built it to blend in with the cliff.

The rocks are a feast for the eyes.

This is Bell Rock - one of the energy vortexes that Sedona has made famous. I didn't feel any energy boost, but maybe I was too far away.

Cathedral Rock is probably the most famous landmark and also a vortex - a 'hot spot' of natural energy. Again, nothing, even when Ron and I climbed it a few years ago. Maybe we're just hopeless.

As you can see, we've been having some cloudy days and even a little rain. But so far it hasn't interfered with our plans.


  1. That building is known as the Chapel in the Rocks ... the entry is in the rear; there's a beautiful view of the valley from the glass wall on the front.

  2. You photos are WONDERFUL--love them all. So no vortex moved you...I think you are moved by the sheer beauty of the landscape if that big smile is any indication!! Great shot of you.

  3. Maybe you can't draw a straight line, but you certainly are an artist with your wonderful photos and the great sense of humor you write with.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Thanks for the photo tour. Brings back many memories!

  5. The airport has a vortex too, which always worried me. Great photo tour! It's a wonderful area.
