TRAVEL THEME: ANCIENT

RED MOUNTAINS OF SEDONA

I hope you don’t mine seeing these photos again.  I posted them when I took my trip to the Grand Canyon two years ago.

BELL ROCK, SEDONA ARIZONA

BELL ROCK, SEDONA ARIZONA

“The canyon walls in Sedona reach about 2,000 feet, but they contain evidence of this area´s geological history as far back as 300 million years. Their composition speaks of ocean floors 250 million years old and of ancient sand dunes. These walls tell us that where now lies a desert, ocean waters once rolled. They are not only stunningly beautiful, they also bear witness to the fact that ours is a living planet.”

  1. I’ve always found myself fascinated by nature’s massive sculptures, Great shot Francine 🙂

  2. The wind must have been eroding and shaping those rocks for a very long time.

  3. “A Native Request” by Uncle Tree
    (who loves these perfectly fitting pics!)

    *
    As the sun begins to set in the west,
    dark eyes greet the skies in a wish for the best –
    dreams that may drift into this time and space;
    visions that speak of a future someplace.

    *
    From a mountain high in the midst of life,
    she sees herself as a motherly wife;
    a daughter, a sister, a friend she is, too.
    The Great Spirit knows what she has been through.

    *
    Whatever the task, however the way,
    she prays for the strength to face every day;
    for the goodness of grace that goes on giving,
    and a love that makes her life worth living.

    *
    With patience and faith she awaits her fate;
    soft heart, open mind, soft touch, open gate.
    She lets her soul melt and her spirit soars
    where lightning strikes and thunder roars!

    • This is absolutely beautiful! If I find a photo in my archive or take a new one, can I use these verses in a post. Thank you for adding these wonderful words to my post.

      BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
