Vacation - Part 6

These first three photos are of our overnight accommodations in Flagstaff: The Hampton Inn.

We started out on the morning of day 5 from Flagstaff and headed south to State Rt. 89A to Oak Creek Canyon.

Route 89A descends a series of switch backs through a scenic smaller cousin to the Grand Canyon. After traversing the hairpin turns of the north end of the canyon we traveled along the bottom of the canyon for 13 km before arriving at Sedona.

Oak Creek Canyon is dense scenic forests.

This photo was taken at Indian Gardens, 4 miles north of Sedona.

At Indian Gardens the scenery in Oak Creek Canyon starts to change from dense forest to the red rock that has made Sedona famous.

These are my parents in front of one of the sculptures in front of a trading post in Indian Gardens.

One of the shops at this location was Garland's Indian Jewelery. The jewelery was magnificent. We could not take photos of the inside of the shop so I have no pictures to show you. However, I encourage you to take a look at their website and browse the many magnificent pieces of jewelery that they have to offer:


  1. That drive through Oak Creek Canyon is just stunning!

  2. Is Garland's where you found some of your jewelry purchases?
