Otherworldly, Drop Dead Gorgeous Sedona, Arizona

posted on 15th of january, 2008

I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Sedona, Arizona. It has some of the oldest exposed rock on the planet, over 360 million years old. The lowest layers, that you walk on, are only slightly younger than the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
The Native Americans who were first here considered this to be sacred land and only came here for ceremonies and lived in the surrounding regions.. even today many people come here on spiritual quest.. the rocks have many colorful names you can see Coffeepot here, but it was also called Chickenhead by the early pioneers.
One of the best things about living here is that i go hiking every day. This trail is about a 1/2 mile from my home and i enjoy it every day.

Tlaquepaque is our most famous architecture.. its modeled after a village down in Guadalahara Mexico and is really stunning as a arts and crafts( really high end galleries)village..you can see the clock tower in this picture and leaves from the arizona sycamores.. the builder had to agree not to tear down one single tree before he was allowed to buy the land,so they actually built around these gorgeous trees..
