B-day Sidetrip to Sedona and Jerome, AZ

Here are the RED ROCKS as we approach entering Sedona, AZ! The locals have named many formations from 'Snoopy' to 'mother w/child'... all are spectacular! Hampton Inn desk clerk, BJ, helped to make my March 13 Bday very special ...she's from Iowa too!

'Tlaquepaque' ~~ enclosed (European style) boutique mall where shop doors open inside to various courtyards and streets with large cobblestones as they do in Europe.

Chapel of the Holy Cross outside Sedona, AZ built into rock w/help of Barry Goldwater when he was in office!

Husband, Terry, lighting candle and signed the guest book. I bought hand-painted Christmas ornament of chapel to add to my 'travel' collection of ornaments.

Jerome, the oldest town in AZ, is nestled into the side of the mtn...hairpin turns, very narrow streets, buildings practically touching each other, and very old, old, old!!!

This is the view from Jerome looking down the hair-pin mtn road. Jerome now attracts artists of various mediums... oil, watercolor, pottery, glass, jewelry, wood, etc...

One of Jerome's facinating businesses! Unique architecture! Bordellos combine w/Pizza!!
