Red Rock Crossing
Coconino National Forest, Arizona
Willows, cottonwoods, and sycamores show their colors at the peak of fall along the bank of Oak Creek as it cascades beneath the famous Sedona landmark Cathedral Rock at sunset. I live near the headwaters of Oak Creek and consider its meanders my extended home. I love this particular cascade for its contrast between the moving and the still: cool water brings life to a burning desert while the ephemeral stream shapes everlasting stone.
