Round-about in Sedona on the way to Slide Rock

Today was our last day of summer exploring. We had a full day planned. First stop, Red Rock State Park. This land was original owned and built on in 1947 by Helen Vanderbilt and Jack Frye. We got to walk around their home, which was built to resemble a Hopi Indian Pueblo. The Arizona State Parks purchased the land in 1986 and the park opened in 1991. Red Rock State Park is a 286 acre nature preserve and environmental education center with stunning scenery. There are many trails to walk and enjoy the park and surrounding views. We enjoyed the park by walking 4 miles of the trails. We walked all three of the biotic environments (riparian, pinyon-juniper woodlands & aquatic) in the red rocks near Sedona. It is a beautiful park and was a fun way to spend our morning. Now we are on to Slide Rock State Park located at the other side of Sedona.
