Red Rock Crossing
The bridge is gone but the beauty remains. Recently a particularly dramatic photograph taken here sold for $17,500. You've seen it in pictures. Now experience it. Wade in the creek, swim in the swimming hole, and enjoy the picnic area or choose your own spot on the red rocks. Cathedral Rock
Cathedral Rock is Arizona's most photographed spot. Considering the competition this should tell you something.
Chapel of the Holy Cross
This cool and dramatic church proves that being on the rocks can be a good thing. Nor should we forget the parking lot views.
Enjoy a view of Sedona from on high. Senator McCain who has a vacation home a few miles away announced the end of his 2000 presidential campaign at the airport.
Red Rock State Park
Our largest local park sponsors Park Service guided tours.
Admission limited to those who can pronounce the name 5 times rapidly. This beautiful re-creation of a Mexican village is a pleasant place to be, a good place to shop. Many unique items for sale.
Schnebly Hill Road
(route 153; named after Sedona Schnebly). In contrast to the first two paved miles, the next six unpaved miles might be the bumpiest trip of your life and require a suitable vehicle. What better way to get full value from that rental vehicle! This trip from Oak Creek up through two red rock canyons provides awesome near and far views. Once at the top you can continue by a beautiful mirror lake on to I17. The return trip gives you one of Sedona's most spectacular entrances.
The Penrose B&B
May we add the view from the Penrose? The fact that local calendars and post cards use pictures of our view (and, indeed, only a small part of our view at that!) validates this suggestion. Beyond what you see from your room, your balcony, and the deck, take a few steps up the path behind the house or walk around the arroyo to the east for new views of Courthouse Butte (which has been featured on the front cover of a national road atlas), Bell Rock, one of the area's most colorful and perfectly sculptured formations, Red Butte and Castle Rock. Notice the amphitheater created by the surrounding buttes and enjoy the breeze with its soothing hum. We think of this as a wonderful, at times even awesome spot--why else are we here?
