Sedona: Leaving (with a stop at Montezuma’s Castle)
Saturday morning we said good-bye to Sedona.
On the way to Phoenix, we stopped at the V-V Ranch for petroglyphs. Those things we saw at Palatki were pictographs (images painted on rock). These would be carved into the rock. It turns out it’s also a great birding location and has some interesting remains from the original ranch house.
Here are the petroglyphs. They’re designed to form a calendar mainly, but pictured below are a collection of herons.
I like this monkey like creature.
And here’s a snake again.
Back in the car we headed down the road to Montezuma’s Castle. It’s another cliff city.
Here’s a diorama showing what it would have looked like with inhabitants.
Anyway, then we were on to Phoenix and a long, long plane ride.
