I have always wanted to go and see this church in Sedona, Arizona. It is about a two hour drive from Phoenix and since we usually have seven kids with us, we don't want to make the drive!
Tim and I had a quick weekend away before school started this year, and it seemed the perfect time to go visit Sedona. It is a very charming and artsy little city. And the scenery is breathtaking.
We drove around for a couple of hours in Sedona, seeing as many of the sights as we could. One thing I didn't like about Sedona... it was very new age. There were signs everywhere advertising psychic readings, conjuring stores, crystals, etc. That scares me.
But the Chapel of the Holy Cross... amazing! Built right into the rock, overlooking the city.
I may not agree with everything Catholic, but I do think it is a rich and beautiful religion full of tradition and rituals.
We drove towards Flagstaff, through the mountains to get back to the main highway to Phoenix. The red rock disappeared and it felt very much like our Canadian Rockies. The highway was lined with cars of people picnicking and swimming in the river with their families.
