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.

Cloudy skies at sunset can be the best or the worst conditions for a great photo. The day after I took this photograph it was cloudy, but the clouds didn't light up ... producing a *blah* sunset. This photo was taken from Bryce Point in Bryce Canyon National Park, which is a great place to observe the fascinating hoodoos and capture cloudy sunsets.

Beyond the namesake Joshua Trees, California’s Joshua Tree National Park has extraordinary rock formations ... which show beautiful texture and form in the early morning light. I found this rocky area just a short hike from the Live Oak picnic area.
