Janet and I motored in Big Red to Sedona, Arizona in early January. If you ever have a chance to visit this place, do not pass it up! The weather was cool but not cold; perfect for hiking and photographing. Our first morning, we noticed motion outside our patio railing, and saw a small family of Javelina foraging about 15 yards from the rail!
Janet and I hiked many miles and saw some beautiful red rock formations. I’ve included a photo of Courthouse Rock illuminated by the evening sun. The view from the hiking trail was spectacular – we walked a circular path around the formation, and saw it from all angles. We were impressed with the friendly people and dogs we met on the hike; perhaps because it was off season, everyone stopped to chat, share stories, and let us pet their dog if they had one along.
The best photo of the trip was a breathtaking sunset picture of Cathedral Rock reflected in water of Oak Creek. I owe Janet for this one – I was busy with my camera and gear photographing Oak Creek and Cathedral Rock when she spotted the reflection in a quiet pool. Needless to say, I was delighted and set to work capturing the photo that you see in the thumbnail. I’ll treasure this image forever!
