We stopped at this scenic overlook on our way to Flagstaff, AZ last summer. What a view! But then again, I enjoyed all the views between Sedona at around 4,000 feet and up to Flagstaff at around 7,000 feet.

Once at the top, we stopped at Walnut Canyon. We didn't hike to the cliff dwellings because it started raining. I guess it's lucky I'm not one of the ancient Sinagua, who inhabited these dizzying dwellings long ago. If I couldn't handle a little rain, I probably couldn't scale the limestone fortress to get home. What were they thinking?
At least we stayed long enough to walk the rim and soak in the sights. Which consisted of blond stone walls, scattered grey tree bones and lots of crows. I do love crows. They are the muse for my future novel after all.
