Moon over the Courthouse
One of the most iconic formations around Sedona, Courthouse Butte reaches an elevation of 5,454' - though, it is only about 1,000' above its surroundings.
A prominent geologic feature in the Coconino National Forest, this butte is very accessible for hikers with well-marked trails, and nearby parking. And, yet, as it appears here, the nature is relatively pristine and seemingly remote.
In fact, from this vantage, atop Baby Bell near sunset during Spring Break - one of the most popular times to visit Sedona, there were no people to be seen, and there is no ground or city lighting in the vicinity to interfere with the evening or night skies.
Sedona is a great place for people who want to commune with nature, take photographs, hike, or go off-roading. If you haven’t already been, I highly recommend taking a trip to visit Sedona and the surrounding area.
