Weekend Reflections / Slide Rock State Park, Arizona
These photographs were taken at Slide Rock State Park in Arizona. It is a natural water chute nestled in Oak Creek Canyon just outside of Sedona. The water is really cold, yet, some kids (about high school age) were entering the area at about 4:00 p.m. with their towels which indicates they were going to do what people do here...slide down the water chute! It is a very popular swimming area during the summer. But, late November...crazy! Despite "craziness" this area is a photographer's dream place! The red rock, the water, the fall colors, the reflections galore...it's amazing! My friend, Sally, is standing on the rock overlooking the reflections of the yellow Aspen trees (middle photo).
