Sedona: To The East   3 comments

Everyone knows to go to the top of Airport Road to see the rocks to the west of Sedona … but that’s actually not the best show at sunset.  To see the setting sunlight on rocks, you need to look to the east of Sedona … which is visible from the top of the hill above a tiny parking lot on the east side of Airport Road, about a half mile above 89A. The hike is only a couple of hundred feet … vertically … and then you overlook the valley to the east, so you see the light from the setting sun.

The parking lot is tiny.  Be early, and be careful!

Sedona: Cock’s Comb   3 comments

We lost our light too soon on our Sedona trip … it started snowing midday. The views are grand, but only a tease for what the photos could have been had the cloud cover been a little less dense.

These shots were taken from the plateau right by the entrance to the airport, on Airport Road. There’s a large parking lot and several coin operated binocular stands for all of the people who come to watch the light on the rocks with the sunrise (or sunset!).

Bell Rock is one of the more famous rocks on your way into Sedona, but don’t forget to look at the other formations south of town. There is beauty around every corner.Courthouse Butte 01 Courthouse Butte 02 Courthouse Butte 03 Courthouse Butte 04 Courthouse Butte 05 Courthouse Butte 06 Courthouse Butte 07 Courthouse Butte 08

We lost our light early, but the rocks are simply gorgeous on the south side of Sedona. You drive up Arizona 179. There are multiple observation points with parking lots. Pay the fee for a day pass and you are in for a treat.

Make sure you stop at the ranger station … they politely have a camera tripod set up for you to use on their front porch!
