Sedona – Day 3 of our Southwest U.S. Road Trip

This morning we got an early start on our hike. We went to Devil’s Arch.

Just before I walked out onto the arch to have my picture taken a young couple walked out onto the arch. As I watched, the guy pulled a box out of his pocket, got down on one knee and proposed to the young woman. She collapsed in tears of joy and everyone within sight broke out in cheers and applause. It was a wonderful moving moment.

The hike to the arch was lovely.


Next we drove to Montezuma Castle National Monument. To quote the brochure; “Southern Sinagua farmers built this five story, 20-room dwelling sometime between 1100 and 1300.”


Then we went to Tuzigoot National Monument. It is “the remnant of  a Southern Sinagua village built between 1000 and 1400. ”


We stopped in Jerome, an old mining town on the side of a mountain.


We went to our room to clean up and rest a bit then drove out of town to check out the red rock at sunset.



And had pizza for dinner.
