I have lived in a canyon close to Sedona since 1981.
There has not been a day in which I have not loved these mesas and buttes.
They are such a Presence, and dramatic backdrop for the sky.
While the rest of the Southwest is sweltering in the hot and dry weather,
high in the Colorado mountains spring is just starting,
and the green meadows and the flowers hurry to get their
life cycle in a season in which spring, summer and fall are combined
in the span of two months.
