Red Rock Chapel in the Hill

While we were in Sedona we stopped off at the Chapel in the Hill. It is a Catholic Church built right into the Red Rock Mountain. We got there right when it opened and were sharing the space with a Baptist Church tour group from Georgia. These guys of course could not obtain from talking as the signs suggested.  While I was sitting in silence they broke out in a rousing choirs of ‘To God be the Glory’.  I had to join in which was to the delight of the ladies. (they said they have been missing a good bass voice on the trip)

If you are in Sedona check this place out as it has the best views of the mountains and lots of natural vegetation. If there are no tour groups it might also prove to be a nice place of quiet.

Red Rocks and open skies

We spent a couple days outside of Sedona AZ. This was our launching spot for our trip to the canyon and other local sites. This part of the nation has a small spot where there are red rock mountains. These are all very fascinating and many different colors reflect as the sun moves. The town of Sedona is your classic tourist town with shops and places to eat. Christy and I spent most of one day just sitting at a local coffee shop that over looked a stream and had the mountains in the backdrop. We were under shade because is was a sunny 98degrees. Dry heat of course.

Great Big Ditch Tour : Grand Canyon

We had no idea what we were going to experience while visiting the Grand Canyon. I kind of expected to look at it and then just go home.  When we arrived we checked out the visitor center and watched a video. We thought it was really funny that they could tell us how the canyon was formed 2.5 billion years ago with such great detail but were a bit sketchy about when the indigenous people arrived just a couple thousand years ago.  Either way the canyon is quite a marvel of God’s handiwork.

We checked out the main view-point behind the center then walked about a mile west along the sidewalk. We then caught the bus back to our car and went on our own tour. We rode all the way to the East entrances of the park to the desert tower and those were some of our favorite views. After leaving the park in different way from where we entered we worked our way down to Historic Flagstaff for dinner. They were having their monthly art walk. It was a fun night of watching people and hearing great music.

Radiator Springs : Williams AZ

On our way to the Grand Canyon we stopped off at Williams AZ. This is said to be the last town on Route 66 that got bypassed by the Interstate Highway in 1984.  We didn’t plan on checking it out but felt led to stop. It was a great little town that we are told the creators of cars checked out to get some ideas for Radiator Springs.  We got some chicken at Safeway and head out on our way to the Canyon.
