Sedona: A Small Town with Big Adventures
January 7, 2016
There’s just something about Sedona. Every year this unassuming desert town draws travelers from near and far. Some people say it’s the canyons and buttes with their etched geological patterns; others proclaim it’s due to the metaphysical vortices that have become prominent sites for spiritual seekers. Whatever the reason, Sedona is one of the great wonders of the American Southwest. If you plan to pass through this majestic region during your next RV trip, then this quaint town is worthy of a full pit stop. Here are four points of interest in Sedona, AZ, that you can check out during your visit:
1. Red Rock State Park
Route 89A encompasses a part of Red Rock State Park. This is a trip that truly epitomizes the meaning of a scenic drive. Prepare yourself for a true feast for the eyes—from red sandstone cliffs to juniper and pinon pine trees. This is one destination where you’ll want to bring along your selfie stick: the backdrop is not one to miss. To take in the full glory of this 286 acre park, contact Pink Jeep Tours in Sedona. The service provides an in-depth guided tour of the park while riding in– you guessed it – a pink jeep.
2. Chapel of the Holy Cross
Perched between two buttes, the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona is a true feat of architectural mastery. Though a functioning Catholic church, people of all spiritual backgrounds can appreciate the site’s beauty. The fact that the church is centered on a vortex adds to the structure’s mystique.
3. Crescent Moon Picnic Area
During your stay, why not stop by the Crescent Moon Picnic Area for lunch? It will be the picnic of all picnics due to the area’s stunning backdrop. Also known as Red Rock Crossing, this is one of the most photographed areas of the Southwest. It is the ideal location for special photoshoots, such as for weddings and anniversaries.
4. Devil’s Bridge Trail
If you plan on doing any hiking while in Sedona, then your route should include Devil’s Bridge Trail. That is, of course, if you aren’t scared of heights. Once you reach the base of the bridge, you will be rewarded with an eagle’s eye view of the scenery below. For the best view, position yourself directly below the 50-foot high rocky arch.
