I had occasion not long ago to take my parents to Sedona, Arizona and time to kill while they went about their business. I headed back to the lovely shopping area of Tlaquepaque, where I thought I’d relax and look around. I also ended up finding some Christmas presents and a great pair of earrings for myself, so that worked out well. Of course Tlaquepaque also has some doors and gates worthy of including in a Thursday Doors post, but I had to be careful not to include any I’d used in a previous post.

Simplicity is the key here.

This door was not only interesting to look at, but made for a photo that needs a second look. There’s a bit of reflection, but you can also see straight through the gallery to the courtyard on the other side.

Sedona, Arizona is known for many things, including a variety of outdoor activities and its art community. But the first things that come to mind (and to the eyes) are its iconic red rocks and you can’t miss them. Here are a few formations we saw on our visit there a week and a half ago. No need to lace up your hiking boots, wear a mask, or social distance. Just sit back and enjoy the view.

It’s Friday and time for the Weekly Photo Challenge.  But we’ll be in Carefree, Arizona (isn’t that a great name?) at an outdoor art show and wine tasting when the theme is posted, so my entry will have to wait.  In the meantime (because I freely admit I’m a bit obsessive about posting right away in the morning), here are a few more photos of the beautiful red rock country of Sedona for you to enjoy.

On the left is Bell Rock.  You can also get an idea of the type of vegetation found at this altitude.
