Sedona, with Klahanie


Sedona is a town in Arizona berween Phoenix and Grand Canyon famous for Red rock formations ( The Schnebly Hill Formation of red to orange-colored sandstone are found only in the Sedona vicinity.)

The red rocks of Sedona attract people from all over the world and the geology of Sedona is a major part of what gives this area its distinct character

The Colorado Plateau is responsible for much of the geology of the southwest as it is the second largest plateau in the world after the Tibetan Plateau
Picture if Sfinx Rock

The red color in the rock comes from iron that was trapped in seawater; the rocks are actually rusting

Red rocks called Two nuns (I think)

The Chapel of the Holy Cross (Roman Catholic chapel)
The Chapel is one of the main tourist attractions in the Sedona area.
Designed by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright.

It is beautifuly nested in the Red rocks

The sign says:
And He shall give his angels
charge over you
to keep you in all ways

View from Chapel towards to Cathedral rock


Bell rock
Sedona besides being beautiful and serene place is believed to be a spiritual power center. There are several energy centers, called vortexes located in the Sedona area .The vortexes in Sedona are believed to be swirling centers of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth and the Bell rock is supposed to be one of them. Of course I have completely closed mind to such believes and therefore did not experienced any of it :-) It is a good business and good for tourism.There is an invasion of vortex people in Sedona.


Coffee Pot Rock looks like a percolator style pot, complete with spout. The base of Coffee Pot Rock is red, with little bit of white and pink. The lid of the Coffee Pot is striped beige and orange, resembling the glass lid of the percolator.

Chimney Rock one of Sedona’s most distinctive landmarks

View from the mesa airport in Sedona

Cathedral rock, most photographed rock in the area and one of the vortex places.

Bell rock and courthouse bute

Courthouse Bute. All these rocks have some name but I only know a few.

And some more views from this interesting part of the world.

There are some amazing pictures from the area on the internet. Much better than mine from a short visit.

It is one of the most beautiful places on the face of the earth

The area attracts artists and there are many living here.

geologists paradise. these are wonderful images. wonder what the coffee pot was called by the ancient peoples of the area? Wonder what it will be called when coffee pots are obsolete.
