Sedona, AZ ~ The cross sits at the top of a hill, and is built within the red rock cliffs. The hill top offers a spectacular view! I was warned that the cactus (seen in this set) spits needles at you if you get too close. Another tidbit: the architect who designed the chapel was also a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. A beautiful place of reflection.

Sedona, AZ ~ Beautiful hiking trail, roughly 4 miles. I visited in summer, and really underestimated the heat – the dry heat sneaks up on you! It was still an amazing hike. I highly recommend it for beginners like me.
