I took this picture of Bell Rock (on the left) and Courthouse Butte in Sedona, Arizona on a cross-country road trip way back in June of 2004. The Southwest American desert is so unlike any place I’d ever been, especially when you come from New England. The colors are truly fantastic any time of day, but the landscape seems to glow red at sunset when the heat of the day has baked the red rocks. The amazing thing is that these beautiful rock formations – formed by millenia of wind and rain erosion – is that they are highly accessible, these two laying mere yards off of Arizona’s Route 1 in the village of Oak Creek.
