When you visit Sedona you will always find cars pulled off to the side of the road while their passengers get out to admire and to photograph their surroundings. My car was just in front of the one you see to the left.
The chapel was completed in 1956 and stands 70 feet high out of a 1000 foot red rock cliff.
After maneuvering my way around the road to the chapel, I found another spot where there was a view point and some hiking trails. It was a perfect spot to get some photos of the beauty of this area.
There were gorgeous views in every direction.
I could see all the way across the valley and see the chapel I had just been to. You can see it in the far right lower corner of the photo above.
I zoomed in so you could see it more clearly.
When I first moved to Arizona, the chapel sat almost all alone in this gorgeous setting. These days it is surrounded by houses all around it in the valley below. But, you can only see a hint of those homes from up high like this. That is one of the nice things about this area. The bastions of civilization don't detract from the scenery around you.
