My Goal for Decades has been to show my Impressions of the Blessings in Beauty that Surround all of Us. That my work may take you to places you may not have the opportunity to see... Where we can just see glimpses of the Creator, through creations HIS which have inspired our work. .......................................................
Sedona Arizona in Winter, view from the Sedona Airport. One of the main reasons we moved to Arizona when we retired, the other was the Grand Canyon. Sedona is a Magical, Sureal, Mystical place to visit and one of the most amazing places for camping trips. Over five million visitors each year come to see the Red Rock Monuments that surround the area. This view is from the plateau where the airport is located. Many take photos from there, and never realize there is a "hiking" path which goes all around the airport. This trail is the best place to get photos of the surrounding area. Then there are roads off the west side which go deep into the "Secret Mountain Wilderness" we like. Because they are dirt road, most who visit Sedona take the "Pink Jeep Tours" into the area. The tours are great we have taken them ourselves, the first time we came to get oriented in the area. But then used them as jumping off points to see more than possible on the tours.
The Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness is a 47,194-acre wilderness area located within the Coconino National Forest in the U.S. state of Arizona.
The Wilderness is predominantly wind and water sculpted pinnacles, windows, arches, and slot canyons, and the red-rock cliffs of the Mogollon Rim that mark the edge of the Colorado Plateau. Bordered on the east by Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, the high mesas of Secret Mountain and Wilson Mountain jut out into the lower country and streams and creeks from the canyons drain into Oak Creek canyon and the Verde River.
Prehistoric rock art and abandoned cliff dwellings can be found in several locations in the Wilderness. One is open during daylight hours, the other requires a special permit and guide to visit.
