Sedona

We drove about 2 hours today to see Sedona, a beautiful desert town near Flagstaff that has terrain similar to the Grand Canyon, but was not as far for us to travel. I first visited Sedona a few years ago, when I drove up with my mom from Bisbee, and was impressed. I was happy to have the opportunity to share it with Bob.

 

 We started out in a little artist's community called Tlaquepaque. It turned out to be pretty high-end art, but we found a few smaller things we liked enough to buy.

Then we drove down to Red Rock Crossing, where we parked and walked to Oak Creek. There are some pretty nice views of Cathedral Rock from that park, and at least one hike to the Rock (we heard it was a 3-hour hike, for which we were not prepared). We did take our shoes and socks off and ford the creek in the ice-cold water to get a better picture of the Rock, but that's as hard-core as it got for us.

After a fabulous lunch, we drove around and took more photos. We also visited a quilt shop.

 

On our way out of town, we stopped at Chapel of the Holy Cross, which is a chapel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built pretty  much right into the rocks. It's pretty amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed the steep walk up the hill to get there.

It was a very successful day, and we got back to our hotel  in time to watch the Huskies play football!
