Views from the Flying Carpet Fine Art Print
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.
