Friday night, November 12th, Sedona, Arizona
We drove up to Flagstaff for lunch (chicken chipotle soup, sandwich/falafel in a nice organic food restaurant), and then visited the Museum of Northern Arizona (www.musnaz.org). On the way, we drove up one of the canyons near Sedona, and visited a Chapel built into on of the rock cliffs. It overlooked a completely awful looking house.
The Museum has a great collection of Native American pottery, and one of the best bookstores for Southwest tribal art research. I bought a book I've wanted to find on the photographs of Navajo. They also publish a monthly journal (Plateau - The Land & People of the Colorado Plateau) that I arranged to receive.
Tomorrow, we're going up into the local canyons, and Sunday we'll drive back up to the hills east of Flagstaff to see the Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, the Wupatki National Monument (a large ancient pueblo), and a nearby meteor site.
Here is a link to the complete set of photos I took today: Trip to Flagstaff
