Layers and Monuments: The Inspiration of Sedona



Layers and Monuments - Image c 2012 Lynda Lehmann


The aura of mystery that hangs among the beautiful red-rock cliffs of scenic Sedona, is palpable.  "Exhilaration" can't begin to express the strength of emotion that is evoked by the unique and majestic landscape unfolding in all directions.  

I have little time to write a post right now, but I'll put up some more photos and observations about Sedona and other places in Arizona as soon as I can!

  1. I'm back - having been away from reading blogs for a whie. And what a super photo to come back to! I shall look forward to more Arizona shots. I'm not one for travelling but if I ever did visit the States Arizona would be my first port of call.

  2. Hello Scriptor Senex! Wonderful to see you, after all this time!

    I've pretty much been lagging on the blog posts, myself, albeit for a variety of reasons.

    I hope you are in good health and feeling great, and that you do one day have the opportunity to take in the marvels of the Southwest, especially Sedona!

    Thanks for visiting!

  3. I've driven *past* Sedona a couple of times, on my way to see other similarly amazing areas (Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce...) so it is on my list someday! I hope you have seen, or get to see Zion sometime too... that's one of my favorite places. Majestic Mother Earth... looking forward to more photos of Sedona now. And hey, you are almost close enough for us to fix you french toast... if you keep inching toward San Diego, let us know! :-)
    ttfn,

  7. Drakonis - Sedona is one of my favorite places, followed by Acadia and Italy. I love the emerald green brush against the striated red rock and the deep blue sky, and all those awesome and inspiring monuments. You can practically FEEL the earth evolving!

    We do plan to see a lot of the state and national parks. And we sure would like to come over for french toast if we are out that way! Thanks for the invite!

I try to respond to comments whenever I can. I ALWAYS appreciate your visits and friendship, and I will reciprocate with visits to your site. Thanks for sharing parts of your blogging journey with me. I value each and every one of you.

NOTE: Please, no more memes, schemes, or awards. They're fun and they may help us to know each other better, but I'd rather spend the time reading your posts and having you READ mine!

Happy blogging!
