Plateaus Foot Rim For High Life

WHERE: Sedona, Arizona, USA. WHAT: high spirits and spiritual highs.
MAP: Sedona. Thumbnail clicks  pop-up larger images.
Our journey's end was Sedona, Arizona, a town that may officially be the wrong side of the Mogollon Rim to qualify as being part of the Colorado Plateaus, but that is like saying the frame is not part of the picture. We delivered our Australian house guest to her hotel, then we all went downtown, which is uptown hereabouts!
Sedona has been described as the 'Woo-woo Capital of the USA', and the ubiquitous presence of pink jeeps driven by gorgeous blonde Scythian tour guides does nothing to detract from that epithet. The only male member of the party was forbidden from approaching close enough to ascertain if aitches were being dropped.
We made our way to the Vista Cantina, from where all four of today's pictures were taken. We ate the best Chipolte Southwest Grilled Chicken Wrap we have ever been served (electing to have a fruit salad in place of the seasoned fries), while gazing out to the eroded sandstone cliffs that are the signature geological feature of this place.
The best picture we were able to find showing Sedona's location [also available sized for large or studio monitors] is courtesy of Steve and Connie Segner from the hacienda hotel El Portal Sedona - check out the individually styled rooms, especially when available on the half price offer! We have no connection with this hotel, but we support any organization with enough savvy to provide five  photo galleries, and even a movie selection page!
