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.

Catching the first light of the rising sun, Mount Whitney takes on a reddish hue much like the clouds at sunrise ... making it stand out against the blue sky. This beautiful sight can only be seen in the Lone Pine, California area because the surrounding mountains hide Mt. Whitney both north and south of Lone Pine. The blanket of snow, on an early spring morning, was provided by two days of rain and snow in the area.

Shark’s Fin and the nearby rocks framing Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous 48 states. The boa of clouds in the middle was a lovely garnish to differentiate the composition and add some interest.
