Sedona Community Cemetery,
199 Pine Dr., Sedona, AR?
I’m a sucker for graves decorated by family and friends. This cemeter is full of them! I love Daniel’s bricks, the many walls hand-crafted with colorful native stones, the statues and the whimsical found-objects. Each display’s careful construction whispers, or shouts, clues about the life led and lost. I find cemeteries like this one sooo much more compelling than those full of plaques – “In loving memory…birth date…death date.”
The Sedona Community Cemetery is only a little way out of town. With the address above, GPS got me there just fine. It’s tucked back off the road among the trees with gorgeous red rock views. Don’t miss it!
While you’re in Sedona, stop for breakfast at Cafe Jose. All the tourists will be at The Coffee Pot, so you’ll have the place to yourself. Lunch is probably great there too, but I kept going back for breakfast and excellent coffee.
