Unlike most of our other Arizona hikes, we could see exactly where we were headed when we started the trail to Cathedral Rock. It was wa-aay… up… there. And yes, I guess it sort of resembled a cathedral. But in fact, all of Sedona’s mammoth red rock formations bear that aura of majesty.
The grandeur of a natural wonder trumps the man made and is always more likely to take my breath away. A little cardio-revving climb only adds to the spontaneous gasp of wonder when a foothold in beautiful is finally attained.
