The Number One Iconic Sedona, Arizona Photograph Location
Oak Creek with Cathedral Rock ~ Sedona, Arizona - Sedona, Arizona is certainly in no short supply of beautiful locations to snap a photograph.
However, if you look at a great many of the glossy publications touting the area’s red rocks, you are very likely to encounter a photograph of Oak Creek with Sedona’s Cathedral Rock in the background.
Photographers flock here during the various seasons , and you can find them here for sunrise, for sunset, for moon glow, for starry nights, for snow covered peaks, and for fog. Why, there must be millions of variations of this very scene.
For years, as I have traveled all around Sedona, I never found a spot where I could capture water and long range views of Sedona’s red rocks.
Well, thanks to a stop in the Red Rock Country Ranger Station, the mystery has been solved.
Now, if I share this with you, you have to promise not to tell anyone. Promise? Is your right hand in the air?
Head west on Verde Valley School Road. Go to the very end where you encounter signs that says “drive no farther”. Park your car in the parking lot, and walk down to the very end of the road (about 1/4 mile). Do not hop on the hiking trail that has a trail-head at the parking lot. Stay on the road.
When you reach the end of the road, go down to Oak Creek, turn right, and walk another 1/4 mile until you find the perfect spot to snap your photograph.
There! I shared a photographer’s secret with you.
Now, as payment for this grand gesture, you must promise to refer one of your friends to our online travel magazine. That’s only fair, right?
