Sedona sunset_Panorama1

Since Sedona was settled by white man at the start of the 20th century, this Arizona area has acquired the nickname Red Rock Country.  And with good reason. The Sedona dirt is as red as dirt gets. Even redder than the lava dirt of Kauai or Maui.

What makes Sedona unique, however, is that in between the layers of red rock there are strands of white minerals. Which makes the mountains look like giant layered cakes. Now, try to aim in your mind a huge orange floodlight at the Red Rock country, and what you would get is a spectacular sunset scene.

Well, you don’t have to imagine it anymore. Here it is as it appeared in real life on Oct 19 when I went to the Sedona airport mesa to join other sunset gazers in capturing this magical moment. Enjoy!
