    Here's just a few more pictures of things we saw around Sedona. We went to the Chaple of the Holy Cross. The shot inside is my wife offering up a prayer. The red rocks seem to change as the sun and you move around, outstanding formations. The last shot was taken in Oak Creen Canyon just north of Sedona. I'll explain the teal arches in a bit.

    Ok,, the teal arch thing is a result of a battle that McDonald's had lost. [font=&quot]I guess golden arches were offensive to the city fathers, and teal seems to go well with the scenery. Commercial buildings and signage in Sedona are designed to blend in with their surroundings making them difficult to find, and fast-food restaurants are not exempt from this. McDonald's had no choice but to give in if they wanted to build in Sedona. I could not see where McDonald's was written anywhere either.

    The rock scene looks like hoodoos to me. We have seen some along the Bow river near Bannf Alberta.
    That sure is a beautiful church. It could be fun to model.

    Yeah, but they wouldn't let me climb up on it to take a few measurements so I could get it to scale.:rolleyes::rolleyes: We have always loved the beauty of that church, sitting proud on that hill and it could be seen for miles from the highway. Unfortunately, it is now surrounded at the base by many houses, with one mega-house is under construction right at it's base and we missed it the first time we drove by it on the highway with all the build-up on the side of the road that wasn't there the last time we were up that way.:cry::cry:.

    Don, great picture of the exterior of the church. Somewhere around here I have the same photo that was taken back in the mid 70's. I had forgotten about it until I saw this. Thank you for the trip down memory lane.
