Throwback Thursday: Sedona Holiday Snow

 

Sedona Red Rock in the snow 2011 

 

We drove up from Scottsdale, while spending a few days there, to visit my Aunt in Sedona on December 3, 2011, a few months after my Uncle passed.

 

It was snowing in Sedona, and cold - my first drive in snow since leaving it behind in New England in 2005 - but the snow on the red rocks and on all the trees was stunning (no doubt our resident Sedona expert Sheri Sperry - MCNE® can attest to that - but my photos are nothing like hers).

 

It was beautiful in town with the light snowfall and all the holiday decorations.

We enjoyed lunch at the airport - yes, the food is quite good with some beautiful views - and then spent time doing a bit of shopping and seeing the Christmas Trees and Gingerbread Houses display at Tlaquepaque.

 

While the trees were all wonderful I particularly liked this one! You?

Thanks George Souto  Sedona really is beautiful at any time of year but the snow on the red rocks was really quite striking. My photos were not the best but thank you for such a nice compliment!

Hello Jeff: it's good to look back and remember.   As for snow it's better observed from afar.  At least for me.

Well I agree with you on the snow Michael Jacobs . I haven't missed it since leaving New England in 2005. I do enjoy seeing it from Carlsbad on the distant mountains.

It really was stunning Nina Hollander  We had alrady visited a few times in the summer but the seasonal look, with the snow, was pretty cool.

Cute Christmas cactus!  Haven't seen anything like that before.  It's nice to see a little snow on the landscape - and you're right, Sheri Sperry - MCNE® has shown us some beautiful shots.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - Your photographs are absolutely beautiful!!! Isn't it refreshing to see snow when you no longer get snow in Carlsbad and Southern, CA? Besides having to go back for a family funeral, your throwback Thursday post was very nice. We really can find the positive, no matter what the circumstances are. May your Christmas be merry and bright and may all your loved ones be blessed.
