Winter in Sedona is a relative term.  I spent the morning scrambling over the odd icy patch but was in shorts for most of the day.  It can snow here but only a few times a year.  Coming from Canada’s frozen lands, I find this part of Arizona’s version of this season very appealing.  I hiked around for much of the day and ended up at Red Rock Crossing in the afternoon.  Cathedral Rock is a siren’s call for artists and I spent hours enjoying the views across Oak Creek and up to the red rocks.  I love the colour palette with the gray branches of the dormant trees, the colourful rocks above and below with the yellow grasses providing a nice bridge to tie them together.  A beautiful place to spend time.

  3. Nice picture, rocks in the water are always giving a special effect. The background is also fantastic.
