Jeep tour in Sedona – Skywatch Friday


The famous pink jeeps in Sedona. We were too tired from hiking so we took an afternoon tour. We had a driver that took us up into the mountains around the area.


The view leaving downtown Sedona from the jeep.


The locals have named all of the rock formations. This one was called Snoopy rock since it looks like Snoopy laying on top of his dog house.


The one on the right is called Eagle since it looks like an eagle with its wings spread out.


The carousel.


The “cow patties” from close to the top of the mountain.


Holiday Road – this is the view in the scene in the movie Vacation where Chevy Chase is trying to decide what to do with dead Aunt Edna (If you’re a fan of the movie, you know what scene I’m talking about. Never saw it? You have to rent it). To the left, in the middle of the mountain, you can see the dirt road winding through the mountain. We took that road up. Only four-wheel drives allowed. It was a very bumpy trip.


The driver took this shot of us. Apparently, it’s the “standard” picture to get while you’re up there.


Another shot of the road frequently traveled. Lots of jeeps out but it was way too much fun to pass up. Totally worth it for the two hour tour.


On the way back to the tour place, I could just barely see the moon coming up over the red rock on the right. Perfect way to end the trip in Arizona.

  1. Beautiful images! If you are still in the area, Dead Horse Ranch State Park, in Cottonwood is a WONDERFUL birding area! We have camped there many times. Once a year, in April, they host the Verde Valley Birding Festival. Lots to do in this area.

  2. The Sedona area is beautiful and your pictures do it justice. and what a great place for your vacation — just about couldn’t be any more different from home — and that’s what vacation trips are all about!
