#Tree Squares 7: It’s You Sedona

To join in the fun of squares this month, create your square post and include a pingback to any of my daily square posts in July. Don’t forget to use the theme’s tag – TreeSquare, and I’d love it if you left a comment.

Becky B.

In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home and spiral farther and farther from home to share different tree species in my travels. All of these posts will work for both Becky B’s Squares and Cee’s Flower of the Day, #FOTD

Sedona, Yeah You Take My Breath Away

The photographs are all mine. The music and lyrics belong to Step


Woke up to falling rain
and a misty mountain sunrise
Poured me a cup of hope
to get the feeling just right
Bell Rock
Step out to face the day
and swear to make a difference
Walk on out through the fields
and I see you in the distance
Chapel Rock
Opened up my eyes
to a flame mountain high

'cause it's you SEDONA                         
 yeah you take my breath away
 it's you SEDONA 
you make blue skies out of gray
Chapel Rock
Beyond the castle walls
vistas never-ending 
so clear like Tahoe blue
a rainbow of blending
Montezuma Castle
Turn on a stellar song
to get the bloodlines pumping
Get back to how it felt
your first time big beat thumping
Opened up my eyes
to a flame mountain high

'cause it's you SEDONA                         
 yeah you take my breath away
 it's you SEDONA 
Tlaquepaque Shopping Center
you make blue skies out of gray
'cause it's you SEDONA    
oh you make it a brighter day
 it's you SEDONA 
 Like a fine glass of Rosé
Reflection of Sedona formation

  1. it’s one of the place I’ve always wanted to visit, and your photos make it even more inviting. Hopefully there is a chance next Spring to see Sedona and the Grand Canyon, since we will be in Arizona for a wedding!

  2. Great memories of visiting Sedona on our AZ/UT road-trip decades ago! I love that last shot through the wineglass – just the sort of thing I like to experiment with 🙂

      • We sometimes take advantage of a shot the other has spotted, but once taken we keep our photos very separate so I always know which are mine! Interestingly we sometimes think we’ve taken the same shot, more or less, but when we compare notes later the images are quite different from each other because we see tings differently 🙂

        • Sometimes he asks to use my camera or phone, so that’s a little hard for us. He doesn’t do anything with his photos other than share them with his son or once in a while on Facebook, so it’s not an issue. When I know he took it for sure, I give him credit on my blog, but it isn’t something that is an issue with him. I just love to see what he comes up with sometimes.

    • Those rocks are some of the most stunning I’ve ever seen anywhere, John. I never tire of it but I remember being awestruck the first time I visited.

    • You’re welcome. There’s not much I loved more than the beach, but Sedona and the beautiful rocks in Prescott are top contenders.





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
