Red Rock State Park
The Navajo way of life, Geology Hike, and Bird Walks featured at the park this month!
The cool crispness of winter has moved into the red rocks of Sedona, and everyone here is waiting for the first dusting of snow. Red Rock State Park slows down for a bit in the winter, but there are still some things happening at this popular state park during the month of December. The park will present The Navajo way of life, or, ‘Walking the Corn Pollen Path’ featuring Wallace Brown of the Bitter Water Diné, on December the 7th, a Guided Geology Hike on the 14th, and the guided “Nature and Bird Walks” will still be taking place as long as the weather permits.
Lecture Series: Walking the Corn Pollen Path
December 7th, 2014 (2:00 pm)
Red Rock State Park will be hosting Wallace Brown of the Bitter Water Diné. Brown will be discussing The Navajo way of life, or, ‘Walking the Corn Pollen Path’. Through rich themes including the stories of Emergence, Trotting Coyote, First Man and Spider woman the past is revealed, the present is suggested and they create a pathway to a satisfying future. Wallace Brown was given a rich cultural foundation by his long-lived grandparents, which helped him weather the changing world of the Navajo Nation.

Sedona Guided Geology Hike
December 14th, 2014 (1:00 pm)
Join Red Rock State Park’s knowledgeable volunteers as they venture out on their trails and discuss how Sedona transformed into what we see today. Red Rock State Park is located at the base of the Mogollon Rim, the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. Over millions of years of erosion the rim has receded over four miles leaving behind the picturesque features of Sedona. This is an interpretive experience for both the beginner and experienced hiker, lasting between 2-2 ½ hours and an elevation gain of 250 feet. Please bring water and wear suitable footwear. For more information please visit Red Rock State Park.
