SEDONA - Red Rock Mountains

Overwhelming, stunning, impressive, a kaleidoscope of colours: Red Rock Mountains
The Chapel of the Holy Cross is a Catholic chapel belonging to the Parish of Saint John Vianney and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix. It was built directly into a butte and offers a spectacular view of the valley 200 feet below. Marguerite Brunswig Staude had the idea for the Chapel of the Holy Cross in 1932, but was unable to create her largest work of art until 1956 (she was also an acomplished religious painter and sculptor). The church is easily identifiable by its most prominent feature -- a giant cross that seems to support the structure as it juts out from the rock. It's elevation, peaceful location, and picturesque scenery have made it an ideal location for the hundreds of people who get married here each year.
