Oak Creek at Red Rock Crossing 2016

One of my favorite locations to photograph in Sedona, Arizona is at Red Rock Crossing off of Upper Red Rock Loop road. It has an amazing view of Cathedral Rock in the background. It’s a very popular location and I was fortunate there were no other people there when I made this image.

Geologically, it is carved from the Permian Schnebly Hill formation, a red bed sandstone formed from coastal sand dunes near the shoreline of the ancient Pedregosa Sea. The summit elevation of Cathedral Rock is 4,921 feet. An older name (no longer used) was “Court House Rock.”
