Cottonwood Arizona, in the Verde Valley, was one of the stops on our spring road-trip. Located about 17 miles southwest of Sedona, Cottonwood is an excellent place to stay for access to Sedona, Prescott, Jerome and the ancient ruins of the Verde Valley. There are three ruin sites in the Verde Valley that are National Monuments. They are Montezuma Castle, Montezuma Well, and Tuzigoot. These sites were inhabited by the Southern Sinagua between 1000 and 1400. The Southern Sinagua were farmers, and the Verde Valley's water and soil gave them what they needed to thrive. These ancient farmers grew corn, beans, squash, and cotton in fields irrigated with canals. Their homes were a combination of pueblos and cliff dwellings, depending on the location.

From the Sierra View Overlook located on White Mountain Road, you can see the Sierra, Owens Valley and Bishop, California. On this evening we enjoyed something extra: a spectacular red sunset. It was one of those that occasionally happen after the sun goes below the horizon/mountains, and there are a few moments of drab sky, that seem like hours, and then there’s a dramatic crescendo of light. I love those crescendos!
