There are more than 300 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails. And if one is looking for more challenge, there is rock climbing.
Driving on 179, Bell Rock can be viewed from the main highway.
Rock formations change colors and shaped quite drastically even just based on the time of the day and the angle.
When J.J. and I first "discovered" Sedona, it was a peaceful artist colony with no large developments. We've made a number of return trips over 30 some years. The natural beauty of the red rock country is still impressive.
However today with Sunday plus Father's Day visitors, vehicular traffic and the number of pedestrians jammed the Main Street that reminded us of Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki.
J.J. particularly did not like the frequent "round about" that are supposed to alleviate traffic jam but instead confused many motorists who were unsure whether to yield or proceed.

I have been watching a turkey vulture circling in the afternoon sky. It has a very large wingspan with white underwings. Apparently they reside in this part of the country only during the summer time. I read that they migrate south during winter.
