If you take I-17 out of the Phoenix, Scottsdale area and head north to Sedona on 179, you will turn a corner a all of the sudden you will see these formations as you approach the Red Rocks country. It is absolutely STUNNING. Unfortunately, we arrived when a Pacific storm system was moving through. Alas, the light was pretty flat. But so what? We were on vacation and in the desert.
It is a good idea to enhance your photos with a person to give a sense of scale. Following my own advice, I included this hiker in the photo of Bell Rock above.
Up by the airport is a lookout over the town. The views are spectacular. Stop by later this week and we’ll go for a hike to the base of the formation that is just left of center.
