{Red Rock Country Sedona Arizona}

Yes, this time around we did get to visit those special highlights in Sedona, becoming part of those annually nearly 4,000,000 visitors! 
Driving up from Scottsdale, Arizona via Freeway 101, onto Interstate-17 and than Highway 179 we passed through Village of Oak Creek where we saw the above Courthouse Rock
The above map was handed to us at the +Hyatt Pinon Pointe, A Hyatt Residence Club and you can view it on SedonaTV ←(click it) and scroll down to map.
Next in Village of Oak Creek we got to see Bell Rock, with still a glimpse of Courthouse Rock to the right...
We did follow Highway 89A, from the Hyatt to the West and took a left on Upper Red Rock Loop Road (seen at left), towards Red Rock Crossing and Crescent Moon State Park...
Photo taken from Upper Red Rock Loop Road with a stunning view of Cathedral Rock!
We also learned that for making the BEST photo, you probably have to try doing so over the entire day for selecting the best hour!
Here we are at Crescent Moon Ranch ←(click it) - Coconino National Forest
You pay an entrance fee of $ 10.00 per car.
That's it!
Yes, we opted for this easy trail type, as Pieter had heart cramps at the end of January and we did not dare to go for the strenuous 7 mile hike UP on Cathedral Rock from the other side.
It was so very bright and sunny that I am but a light blob here in this photo in front of the Water Wheel
Here I am on the trail and you can see that the trees almost fully did bud out, on March 26. That way they very much do obstruct the view of Cathedral Rock from this point.
Pieter just loved this very special tree that we found along Oak Creek...
Once we walked past the tall trees, we could clearly see the majestic Cathedral Rock!
Quite a sight... This is Red Rock Crossing with Oak Creek flowing in front of Cathedral Rock
Oak Creek was beautiful as well!
This is just taken from a video I made, showing Pieter making the above photos...
Here we are on Chapel Road...
Sign saying there is additional parking ahead...
This is Chapel of The Holy Cross ←click it
Below you find a photo from the inside of this special Chapel.

Great architecture by Marguerite Brunswig Staube and it seems to be huge!
We did not go inside, as it is quite a bit of a hike from the parking lot and might have been too strenuous on Pieter...
Below you find excellent videos with far better images, to understand Sedona's beauty!

      Oh, the sight of Cathedral Rock is incredible. So many different views but I am afraid that those trees will more and more obstruct the view from Oak Creek.

  4. Mooie foto's van de rode rotsen, Ik zou daar alleen geen kapel gaan bouwen tegen de prachtige rotsen, jammer.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Heb er nog een foto van het interieur van deze bijzondere kapel bijgevoegd. Je mag het niet zo geslaagd vinden, maar het is en blijft een van de 'main tourist attractions in Sedona!'
      Het feit om daar op zo'n hoogte je dichter bij de Schepper te wanen, speelt hier in Amerika nog een grote rol. Ook is het uitzicht adembenemend.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      It sure is and with all its Vortexes it has been for ages. That's one positive thing we could learn from the native Indians! They were so much more in touch with the spiritual world.

  7. I like that each rock has got name. Bell Rock is perfect name for that shape. The Cathedral Rock is truly magnificent. What a view! I kind of felt as if I was watching science fiction scene when I saw the chapel. The building and the whole setting have such atmosphere, I think :-)

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Yes, there is quite some thought given in doing so. Oh, if you are there on a perfectly sunny day like we were, it does touch you in many ways. Knowing that this got created some 300 million years ago makes you admire it even more! We are such a minuscule speck in time, compared to these giants that got formed such a long time ago.
      That lady architect had quite some vision and she too was very touched by the spiritual aspects of this entire area; you can't help that. Especially for the 1930s she did a remarkable job in incorporating it into the landscape, the way she did!
      So yes, I totally agree with you as it has a tremendous atmosphere; no matter what religion you are, it makes you respect our Creator.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  10. Breathtaking rock formations! How nice that you visited on a sunny day when the colors seen were extremely vivid. I have heard that the Sedona area is especially beautiful and your lovely photographs prove it to be so very true! This looks like a destination I would like to visit some day. Beautiful images of you and Pieter as well!

  12. Dearest Mariette,
    I have just gone through your previous post on your trip in Sedona and now this one, and I was so pleased to admire the beautiful scenery through your excellent photos. This is such a lovely place and you were lucky to spend some days there. My visit of the area was much shorter but...I did have the chance to also see the inside of the Chapel of the Holy Cross and to admire the view from there! I will never forget it!
    Many hugs and best wishes for a lovely month of June!

    1. Dearest Marie-Anne,
      Thank you and yes, we did thoroughly enjoy these three days in Sedona and one could easily spend a lot more time there! You were lucky for having been inside the Chapel. I only read later that they do run golf carts so that would have been a great option for Pieter instead of having to climb up those strenuous 700 feet. We might have to go back for it!
      Hugs and best wishes for June dear friend.
