On our second and last day in Sedona, we paid a visit to Red Rocks State Park. The weather totally cleared up, allowing us to take a short and leisurely hike. It was a totally different feeling than seeing majestic red rocks the day before – a lot more peaceful and secluded. The temperature was low but the sunshine made it comfortable.
On the way home, we stopped by Montezuma Castle National Monument, which protects cliff dwellings built by pre-Columbian indigenous people. Unfortunately I was too hazy from my nap in the car to remember any more historical facts about the site, but it was magnificent to see. It’s hard to imagine what life was like living on a cliff, but the quaintness of the site made me feel like it must have been not so bad.
