Trip to Sedona

From our trip to Sedona, Arizona.  Beautiful views from every where.
We got lucky and saw a Javelina.  We were driving through a neighbor hood
and I was not able to get a photo of it. 

At a State Park there is a nice little creek running.
Visitors have stacked piles of rocks along the side.

Montezuma Castle.  
Hundreds of years old, built by the Sinagua Tribe.
It is along the highway from Phoenix to Sedona.
The name Montezuma is just a name.  It does not have any connection to
 the Aztec, Montezuma.

Water wheel on an old rancho built in the 1930,s.
Now part of a State Park.  It had an electrical generator.
And they grew apples on the property.

Oceanside Surf Contest 7-29-2017

The event was a surf contest for Women.  One of the surfers was riding a wave and went clear under the pier.   There were a lot of people and vendors there.  Too much fun.
