“Sedona Snow”

Views from the Flying Carpet Fine Art Print

Sedona Snow 4033-H_ASmw1200“Sedona Snow,” was photographed over the junction of Munds and Oak Creek Canyons where they open into Sedona, Arizona, widely considered one of the most scenic locations in the world. (Click on the image for a larger view.)

Alabaster snow on crimson rock is always a visual treat for Sedona residents and visitors, but from high over the surrounding Coconino Plateau the contrast is even more dramatic. On this day, a routine flight from Mesa to Flagstaff turned magical through a perfect sprinkling of low clouds and sun.

From aloft, the sight also plays up the altitude difference and resulting temperature spread between plateau and valley. Snow often garnishes the 7,000-foot-elevation plateau and associated pinnacles, but rarely the 4,800-foot town.

Finally, aviators will appreciate the distant glimpse of legendary Sedona Airport on its mesa overlooking town. The “aircraft carrier” runway is a bucket-list landing site for pilots around the globe.
