God created the Grand Canyon, but he lives in Sedona!

The sentence from the title is 100% correct!
It originated from the Indians  but  now it's widely used by  locals and tourists.

interesting house
Sedona is located 120 miles from Phoenix. It is residency of  11,000 people on about 50 square kilometers. 51% is privately owned and the rest belongs to the Coconino National Forest!http://www.fs.fed .us/r3/coconino /

The average altitude is about 1330 meters. The highest point is Coffee Pot Rock, located about 1,700 meters above sea level . Average  age of population is 50 and it is mostly high income households.There are number of famous residents who currently live or have lived here in the past and among them is a  former president candidate  John McCain http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/John_McCain It is easy for him - he has a good retirement !
About 3 mliona tourists visit Sedona each year. Among  them was myself - twice!

Sedona also known as Red Rock Country.
Here's why.

Myself on the red rocks 
As I said , I visited Sedona twice. In my first visit,  I went by car . Second time - by plain .
One thing that you must do  in Sedona is a Jeep Tour . We had our own car so we visited a destination called Broken Arrow that made  Sedona famous . It is named by famous 1950 western movie with James Stewart    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042286/

                                                                     Our car

They do not know what happened to them ....

no turning back
Truly a wonderful experience for me . My travel buddy Adža is a great driver !
Learning how to drive in  Serbia , one gets a great experience of "cross country" - so cruising  on the rocky Sedona roads was a peace of cake !
What else  one has to see  in Sedona?
One of the most popular attractions  is the Chapel of the Holy Cross http://www.chapeloftheholycross.com
I'm not an expert on architecture or a  religion but I must give credit to the person  who designed it. At the entrance it is written that they welcome people of any race and religion and I like that !

Here are some photos of the church.

Sedona is famous for art galleries .  Here is some of the work displayed outside 


Thanks to my buddy  Mich , the second time I visited Sedona was  plane.
Did I enjoy ? Hmmmm - what do you think ?
I loved it !

  taking off  

Where is the airport? 

One can  see the official website of the airport.http://sedonaairport.org/
What else  to see and to do?
Let's say there are many healers, psychotherapists and energy healers.  There are even tours named : Sedona Vortex tour, Authentic Psyhic Spiritual Healer, Wisdom, etc. Psyhic Sedona.
I did not visit any ....we have enough of them in Serbia. 
I am just not in to that at this point of my life, next time maybe...
And surely I will return because:

"God created the Grand Canyon but he lives in Sedona" 

Just to check if he is still there ....
