A Summer Trip to Sedona

A Summer Trip to Sedona

June 6, 2010

Today we headed North to Sedona again. It was a hot, beautiful day. It was due to be about 110 in Mesa, so we decided to head for the high country in hopes of finding cooler weather. Our plan was to find a new RV Park to move to the following weekend. We did find a nice park in Camp Verde, but ultimately decided even Camp Verde would be too hot in the Summer.

Sedona, AZ from the West

After checking out several RV Parks in Camp Verde we drove to Cottonwood to see a couple more. Then we drove to Sedona via Hwy 89A, which approaches from the South and then turns East. Normally we come up Hwy 179 which comes in from the Southeast.

Cathedral Rocks and Clouds

Next we went for a beautiful drive down to Oak Creek along the Red Rock Loop. Here is a photo of Cathedral Rocks and some pretty clouds in the distance.

Four Spires, Sedona, AZ

I’m sure this formation has a name, but I’m not sure what it is.

Scenic Bell Rock

To me, this is the definition of scenic view. Another great trip to Sedona.
