Before heading out for the day of sightseeing, Mark filled in as Docent for one tour because they were short-handed. It gave me an opportunity to take some photos of him doing what he LOVES to do; teaching others. Here are some photos of Mark's tour and some beautiful views of Sedona.
Honanki Heritage Site is Palatki's sister site. However, the archeologists have only found proof of the Sinagua people being there and no prior archaic people like they did at Palatki. Even though the archeologists documented over 1200 pictograph images, they do not study it anymore because of all the graffiti has covered up much of the history in a few short years. You can still see the pictographs and the dwelling very well, but because of this, the site is open to visitors without a docent and no reservations are required.

The Chapel of the Holy Cross has been an icon of Sedona since 1956. It has been on our "to-see" list for a while, and it does indeed have a gorgeous view of the valley and nearby mountains! If you plan a visit here, know that the parking spots are pretty small.
Last but not least, is some extra photos around Palatki. Some views from the grotto, along with sunset views and some animals we caught on our night camera. It was a Mule Deer and Hooded Skunk.
