Our second stopover was at Sedona on our way North towards Grand Canyon National Park. We had seen photos and knew the scenery was going to be dramatic but the beauty that awaited us far surpassed our expectations.On our drive towards Sedona, we took a slight detour to visit this incredible pueblo cave dwelling called Montezumas Castle, built in the 1100s high up in limestone cliffs and only ever accessible with the use of ladders.
There is a gentle river running by in the valley beneath this cliff which would have been invaluable to the people of that time who lived here.
Nearby I saw these wonderful trees just asking to be photographed.....
I'll let the photos of the huge red rock formations around Sedona speak for themselves and you'll see that I also met a real Indian Chief!
