Sedona, Arizona is one of my favorite places on the planet - the vibe and the views are nothing short of majestic. I always take a ton of photos when we go there and I'd love to share them ALL with you, but instead I'll just give you a glimpse. And actually, photos never do Sedona justice anyway - you have to GO THERE and experience it first hand.
Today I'm sharing photos of our stop at the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
This chapel is built way up on the side of a mountain. The photo above was taken from the road going up to the parking lot.
So that's the front of the building, and this is the other side - I was standing just outside the main entrance in the photo below. You can see through the door - notice the back of the cross from the inside? And on the sides of the door is a reflection of the mountain right behind where I'm standing. Awesome, huh?
When you're in Sedona, there are beautiful views every where you turn. This is what it looks like standing beside the chapel:
I never snap a whole lot of photos inside the chapel. It's just so quiet and peaceful, and there's usually someone inside who's deep in thought/prayer. The only photo I took inside the chapel was of the candles. Both sides of the front alter are lined with candles burning in red glass - SO pretty!
There are lots of cacti growing along the walkway up to the chapel. Doug and I wondered how many unknowing tourists reach out and touch these things. He and I are wise to them and kept our distance!
It's just such an awesome place to visit - I already want to go back!
And if you ever visit Arizona, I'd love to take you there.
