Just before we reached the city of Sedona, we stopped by Bell Rock Plaza for some information and a spicy prawn fried rice lunch at a Thai restaurant there. With full stomachs we were ready to take on the weather and explore the sights. First stop was the Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte. It's interesting to note that all this land used to be underwater and when the water rises, the wind begins to erode the rocks after thousands of years shaping it the way it is now. The red colour is rust from the rocks exposed to sun and wind over the years.
It was an easy one day tour which you can do on your own discovering the various rocks formation around Sedona such as the Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, Snoopy, Teapot, Cathedral Rocks, etc. Of course if you want to spend more time hiking or biking then you would need a few days to explore all the rocks.
Next trip I want to make is to the Grand Canyon which is about 2 hours away from Sedona.
