Sedona was on my list of top things to do/places to visit while in Arizona for the week. So with my wife, and my youngest sister Jen (who flew in from Australia to be with us!), we went to see what we could all accomplish and see in one afternoon! For this post, I'll feature some images from the Chapel of the Holy Cross, and follow up with the rest of our afternoon in Sedona in the near future!
Turns out, the Chapel of the Holy Cross is a MUST SEE for a couple of reasons:
1. It's free. The location is pretty neat, as it's among the residential area, and you have to drive up a fairly long and narrow, winding drive-way, while trying to avoid the hundreds of tourists everywhere. There are parking assistants which make it a little easier.
2. When walking to the main platform, before entering the chapel, the tendency is to walk to the edge to overlook the town and the fantastic view. What I (and I'm sure most people) didn't expect to see, is the giant mansion, apparently owned by Loan and Elena Cosmescu who is said to be the inventor of the laser in Lasik eye surgery. My mind was blown!
The third photo from the bottom is always an interesting one to me, because of the way the rocks look like faces. If you look closely, you'll see a guy climbing.
