Memories of Sedona, Arizona

Driving for hours through at least three torrential rain storms, I was getting driver weary and just wanted to get to Sedona. I finally found the right road from Flagstaff to Sedona Canyon. I would have been just as well off by taking the freeway toward Phoenix but how was I to know that two roads from the freeway both go into Sedona. The road on the southern end is much faster but not nearly as scenic.

I took the highway which drops down into a winding narrow canyon. Being one of the most spectacular trails that I have ever seen, not only was there not enough places to pull over to take photos, but I was literally also too tired to stop.

I wish I had stopped to take photos but since I didn't, it gives me a wonderful excuse to go again.

These are the last photos that I took while in Sedona.




After my helicopter ride that evening, a rain storm blew in but didn't stay long.

Those Arizona skies can be so dramatic when there's a storm! I haven't been to Sedona in years although I've driven between Phoenix and Flagstaff several times on the highway. You've inspired me to take a side trip next time I get the chance.
