Oct 5, 2006 - Sedona Valley, Arizona

Just prior to leaving for Albuquerque and the balloon festival a short side trip was taken from Flagstaff to the town of Sedona. It was a rather overcast day, which it always seems to be every time Flagstaff has been visited, but still a good day for a short trip to see the red rocks of the Sedona Valley. Sedona is one of those expensive tourist towns, but it is worth the drive just for the scenery and then to people watch while in town. Not much else to say about this, it was just one of those quick little side trips for something...

Jun 10, 2006 - Beautiful Sedona

Don's brother, Tom, and his wife Jan visited Sedona and their daughter Sherri and husband Kim. Tom raved about it and that is why we put that on the itinerary. If we stopped our trip right now, the drive through the dessert states would have been worth it. The pictures cannot do justice to the area. The town is surrounded by these red mountains and rocks of all shapes. and the sky is ,indeed, a deeper color blue as the background. Wow! We took an off road jeep tour for two hours with a guide. That was thrilling and interesting with a little...

May 29, 2006 - Sedona AZ: May 29- June 18, 2006

Sedona Arizona May - June 2006 We spent several weeks in June 2006 in the Sedona area. We hiked and enjoyed the local activities in and around Sedona and Cottonwood. We also did the tourist thing (very rare for us) by visiting an arts and craft enclave within Sedona called Tlaquepaque. There were many very interesting and very expensive works of art. We also went to the town of Jerome and the nearby Tuzigoot National Monument. Sedona is famous for the red rock formations found everywhere in the area. Many people go to there just to see the...

May 11, 2006 - Sedona, AZ

We drove to Sedona approx. 15 miles away. The red rock mountains are beautiful. We have all seen them in the movies but to see them in person is really special. We took a tour on the Trolley which took us around the entire area including a chapel on a mountain. (see pix) The town is a tourist town with a lot of little interesting shops. You could spend hours just going from shop to shop. Yep that is exactly what we did. We also had lunch at the Cowboy Club, built in 1946. Years ago it was a Saloon. There were a lot of movies made in Sadona...

Mar 28, 2006 - More Arizona,Sedona tour

Hi everyone, We are forwarding some pictures from our tour to Sedona. Enroute to Sedona we visited the Montezuma Castle National Monument/Ancient Farmers of the Verde Valley - Southern Sinagua farmers began building this five story, 20 room dwelling early in the 12th century. It stands in a cliff recess about 100 feet above the valley. Early settlers marveled at the structure and assumed that it was Aztec in origin, hence the name Montezuma's Castle. The castle was built by a creek for the water supply. We really enjoyed Sedona with its...

Oct 29, 2005 - Sedona, AZ

I will start this today Oct 26th but won't finish for a few days as I have zillions more pictures to take. This place is just awesome. We were here a few years ago and only got to spend one day in Sedona. We vowed to come back and really see it so here we are. Since our last update I have to say that we just weren't through with the Zion area so we went back and took more pictures. Then the drive from Zion to Sedona was extra special so ... More Pictures. First we hiked a trail that took us behind a waterfall. The colors on that trail were...

The Beginning

Jul 30, 2005 - Sedona, Arizona - Wild Wild West!

On the way to Sedona we stopped off to see a few cactus. These things are huge. We drove to Sedona where we spent a few hours. This is a great little town and there are several high profile celebrities with houses here including Madonna who has apparently never been there. It has unique red rock mountains and it is a county rule for the town that any structure that is built has to be painted in any of 23 shades of red or brown and no structure can be higher than two stories. Even Maccas couldn't have its yellow arches. It is quite good...

Sep 18, 2004 - Sedona

Sedona in the morning was sweet, I was a bit sunburnt and for the first time wished it wasn't so hot and sunny. An unbelievable concept two weeks earlier sitting in the rain and cold in my Melbourne apartment. We checked out the Holy Church, perched on a rock in a spectacular valley. A simple design which incorporates a cross into the building. The designer had a bit of help from Frank Lloyd Wright. As we turned to leave there was a staircase to a gift shop, which somehow seems a little contrary to the whole religiousness even to a heathen...

Apr 7, 1998 - Sedona, Arizona

Today we drove from Phoenix with Jerry, Kim, Vickie, Jared and Brandon to visit Sedona. It was a beautiful drive. What surprised us all was it started to snow when we arrived. We were walking to a Mexican restaurant and the largest snowflakes I have ever seen started to fall. It was amazing! We had a wonderful lunch and laughed so hard at Brandon. He kept dipping chips into the very hot salsa, he almost cried when he felt the heat, then he wanted more and more. He is only three and it was so funny to watch. I wish I had taken a picture of...
