Golf the first 9 holes at Sedona Golf resort and then you are rewarded at the 10th hole with this gorgeous view (although every hole is beautiful!). You don't have to be a pro to golf here. Open to the public and all levels of play.
#colorful All you get is drama in Sedona. Red, red rock. Green scrub and, yes, #blue sky. Curling down through an arroyo around the back of Courthouse Rock. The back of Courthouse Rock, a The flip-side of Bell Rock. Oh well, what the heck, this one looks pretty good in black and white, too. You can climb Bell Rock right to the top, but a nifty little jaunt is to about the halfway point, where the view is -- you know, we have to come up with new words for this stuff -- spectacular.
Those are the Twin Buttes off in the distance, and the light trapezoid at the very base on the right-hand side is the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Courthouse Rock. Hard not to be impressed by this thing.
Incidentally, you'll find a varied logic to the names given to the mesas and formations all around Sedona. Whoever thought to name it first appears to have claimed the rights to it, though that title can remain somewhat suspect.
For example, there is a A view off the northeast side of Bell Rock. That's Courthouse Rock to the right (in shadow), the Twin Buttes on the left, and the monster in the middle is going to be a free space for this offering. Sedona's hiking trails are mapped exhaustively, and the primary rock formations pop up all the time. But I could find no topographic document detailing each of the various buttes in the area. From the side of it, I'd say it was the rock formation viewed on the right from the Sedona airport vista, but since that is only a guess, I'll leave it unnamed. Bell Rock sits directly next to Courthouse Rock, which must make Courthouse Rock hopping mad. Easily the more majestic of the two, it has to sit back and watch while all the tourists flock around its cousin and fawn over it with lavish attention.
Truth be told, Bell Rock is a destination for many tourists coming to Sedona, primarily for its instant access from the highway, and secondarily -- I guess I don't really know the cardinality, when it comes right down to it -- because it is supposed to be the site of one of the most powerful vortices in the area. Even some of the more reputable trail guides will give you directions to it.
I climbed the thing as high as my hiking partner felt like going, gazed in wonder over the surrounding countryside and felt a rush of gratitude knowing I'd been lucky enough to see such beauty.
Do you really need a vortex if you have that? A little later in the year that moon will rise high enough to really make the photograph I'll have to admit it, this was the thrill of a lifetime: to be standing no more than five feet from a fully-mature eagle, even though she did pretty much exactly what I have seen eagles do in the wild for the past few years.
Her name is Aurora, and she has only one functioning eye. It was injured when she was a chick. Her parents had no way to accommodate that kind of injury, so they abandoned her in the nest. Fortunately, she was rescued soon enough so that her eye could be sewn back in and she could be raised as a rescue animal and live a relatively normal life.
She is so accustomed to her current handler that she has started to lay eggs -- unfertilized though they may be.
Isn't she a beauty? Imagine standing next to her. It was a crazy bird man's dream come true. Plateau Fence Lizard basking in the sun (also getting ready to bolt). The view off the WNW side of Bell Rock. You'd think a guy could put a whole panorama of the valley together with these photos and come up with something spectacular (and he might have done that already). Even though you won't see it on Trover, you can do yourself one better...get down to Sedona, hike up the rock and redden your peepers at the awesomeness of it all. This beautiful creature is named Rio, and he is a Zone-tailed Hawk. While fairly common in Mexico, Central and South America, it is rare to see them in the states. Rio was probably smuggled here, though it is possible that he dropped out of a nest somewhere in the southern portion of one of the southwestern states. All the raptors were extremely well behaved at this event, but Rio was actually the most endearing. If a raptor can be said to be vulnerable, Rio seemed the most vulnerable of all. But he likes people, and he'll sit quietly while nutty bird men snap their cameras in his adorable face. And, since I have a real nostalgia for old westerns -- many of which were filmed at this very location -- another B/W version makes an appearance. The twin ribbons of Highway 179 whip by the towering rocks of the Verde Valley.
( #blue ) The sleepy little town of Oak Creek at sunset, in the shadow of Courthouse Rock. The water has just recently receded from some of the spots along these trails. You can begin to see where the regular rush of winter creeks is wearing away through the soft red rock, leaving streaks of purple and yellow along its path. Courthouse Rock and Bell Rock sit in close proximity to each other, with miles of trails winding up and down and around them.
Bell Rock is supposed to be the location of one of Sedona's famous How these trees manage to survive is a mystery to me. But they don't just live up here, they thrive, drawing whatever bit of water they can find from the sharp, dry air., the cool condensation of the late night and early morning, and a few deposits of running water tucked away between the broken rocks. It's Sedona. Chill happens. I can't say enough about the place where we stayed south of Sedona. Unassuming enough, though with all the creature comforts. But the backyard was astounding. The light and color that would play over this place at dawn and dusk were a delight to behold. The yard had three religious statues, but they didn't dominate the landscape in any way. Instead, they seem to lend a meditative calm to the place, fixing your eye from time to time as it wandered through the shadows. One of my favorite spots in #arizona. #az #sedona #nature #hiking #outdoors #naturalbeauty #desert A note to photographers.
When you go to Sedona, you're going to feel like a school kid after drinking his first beer.
Everything is going to be beautiful. Everything is going to be perfectly lit. Your camera will be able to do no wrong. And you will go a little bananas with the SD card.
Here's my advice. Go for it big time.
On the first day.
Take a picture of every red rock and every mesa and every cactus and everything you can find.
Then, that evening, when you have found your quiet place and can review the day's work in calm, start This summer, I did some exploring in Arizona. Crazy hot temperatures aside, I was blown away by this site At some point, I will tell you all about the four raptors I ran into on my way to Sedona one day. For now, let me tell you that this is Jester, a female Peregrine Falcon with a huge curiosity for human beings and the cameras they carry. View looking north towards Sedona from about half way up Bell Rock. The trail out to and around the base of Bell Rock is quite easy. If you want to climb up you can decide how difficult to make it by the route you choose. Iris from the backyard garden of the rental home where we stayed. This is Chaka (don't know about the spelling, but it's the same sound as the singer). She's a variation of Red-tailed Hawk called a Moon over Bell Rock. Bell Rock butte is a part of awe-inspiring vistas in Sedona. Once you are driving in the scenic drive area, or on the highway 179 north toward Sedona city, it will be seen immediately. You will be fascinated by such spectacular natural beauties. When we visited here it was a cloudy day , so the picture I took was not as picturesque as I expected, but it is beautiful enough to post it #TakeAHike Travel Photos #patterns Travel Photo
travel picture One of the popular rock formation in Sedona. View looking to the west from Bell Rock Trail. Bell Rock is a popular tourist attraction just north of the Village of Oak Creek, Arizona.
Thought I'd try to manipulate the shot and turning it into one of those 'small world' type images Driving up from Phoenix towards Lake Powell, stopped at Bell Rock. Beautiful and colourful rock formations. Well worth the stop Awesome view! #hiking #nature #arizona This is known as space rock or muffin rock and it is actually on the northside of Courthouse along the trail. We happened to stumble upon it coming around from the eastside walking around Courthouse. There is a trail that goes to the top of it accessing on the west side. It has a really good view of Cathedral from it. Its not very high but kind of neat looking. It was very windy when we were there and almost lost our hats. Sedona is listed as a one of the most beautiful places in America list. View from Bell Rock. Great views! Cool car! #blue skies! Sedona is located in Yavapai County and the state of Arizona.
