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.
