Red Rocks of Sedona

Another lazy morning before heading north. It was 70 when we left Phoenix this morning but got cooler as we drove toward Sedona. Still sunny and nice. Seldom needed a sweater.

First stop was Montezuma's Castle. The Sinagua Indians built adobe cliff-dwellings during the 12th century. It was a 5 story, 20 room village in its day.

Next part of the trip was through the Red Rocks of Sedona. They were absolutely gorgeous! We stopped at many picture-taking places and were amazed at God's creation.

Nearly reaching Sedona, we stopped to see the Chapel of the Holy Cross which is built into the red rock. Amazing site. We walked up to the Chapel and even sat inside for a few minutes.

With more mountain driving to tackle, we drove on to Flagstaff with only one or two stops to take pictures. It was only after we got our room at the Hilton Garden Inn that it really began to cool down. First it was just a drizzle and then turned to snow!!! as we ate dinner at "Gramma's Closet". Ugh!!! After a lovely dinner, we went back to the hotel and settled in for the night! Beautiful day (at least until the weather changed to snow!)
