The last part of our springtime itinerary was visiting Sedona. We’ve been there many times before but always enjoy the gorgeous views.

In 1956, the Chapel of the Holy Cross was built right into one of the area’s mesas on Coconino National Forest land. The site is one of Sedona’s famed vortices. One side of the church features a tall cross set in a glass wall which provides a view overlooking the city of Sedona. The other end of the building has a glass door and windows showcasing the red rocks.

This is the view from the cross-side of the church. The building and observatory tower you see in the foreground is a private home.

I love this little sign seen in the gardens at the Chapel of the Holy Cross. It made me smile along with the flowers.

After seeing everything possible in Sedona, our last visit was to Tlaquepaque, an arts and crafts village on the banks of Oak Creek offering the works of amazingly creative artisans of all types. Tlaquepaque means the "best of everything”. This sculpture of a frog blowing a kiss was found tucked into a corner. I appreciated his little kiss as we said goodbye to Sedona and the end of our little road trip.

Seeing these pictures makes me want to go there. One of the things I have enjoyed since moving to CA is that I am now part of the west. I love the east coast and it will always have a special place in my heart, but the natural beauty of the west is unparalleled. IMHO.
