How did the rocks get that way? Layers of sandstone and limestone were left in the area by a receding ocean. Over the span of millions of years, iron oxide coated the grains of sandstone, and eventually rust was formed.
If exploring the terrain is your desire, purchase a Red Rock Pass. It covers the cost of parking and trail use.

My husband and I explored Sedona a little more than a week ago. It was a wonderful opportunity to disconnect from electronic devices and set aside the cares of the world.
It turned out to a boon for my outlook, as I mindfully took in the Red Rock grandeur.
Even if you don't feel energized by the red rocks of Sedona, I'm sure you'll agree each rock formation is a magnificent natural wonder.
At lunchtime, I enjoyed this delicious salad at a totally organic restaurant, Chocola Tree in West Sedona. The address is 1595 W. State Rte. 89A and phone is 928-282-2997.
Notice those cases of handmade chocolates and desserts in the background. Yum, yum.
