When you drive to Sedona along highway 179, the first rock structure you encounter is Bell Rock, so named as it's shape resembles a large bell. There is a great trail (Bell Rock Pathway) that starts at the parking lot.
On New Year's Eve, Sedona received 5 inches of snow. Since Bell Rock is on the east side of Sedona, it was in full light when we arrived. We quickly headed down the trail and were rewarded with this fantastic view.
It is always amazing how a few inches of snow can completely change the feel of a location. Typically, the fence posts blend into the background without the snow; however, add snow to the picture, and the fence posts outline this inviting trail and take your eye down the path. Bell Rock is so beautiful picking up the morning sun on this clear cold morning.
