Sedona Rock Art #1

Sedona Rock Art

Sedona Rock Art

Although there are a good number of sites containing Rock Art, the highest number of them that I have found only contain a small number of stick figures, hand prints or zig-zag lines.

The good news is that if you are interested in viewing a very fine collection of Sedona Rock Art I would highly recommend spending a day visiting Honanki, Palatki and V Bar V Ranch. You can see all three for the cost of a Red Rock Pass.
These Heritage Sites are manned by very knowledgable people to give you insights into the Ancient Cultures, adding a lot to the experience. Check the Cultural Sites link below for availability.
