This package consists of 8 cards and envelopes contained within a sturdy plastic wallet-like case. The case is transparent to allow prospective customers to examine the cards without the need to handle them. The case may also be used as a lightweight photo wallet.
Two each of the following cards:
“spires in the sanctuary”
“the falls below cathedral”
The Sinagua people worked with nature constructing this masonry village over 800 years ago. Built from native materials of stone, mud, and timber, Palatki faces south to gather warmth from the winter sun. The alcove provided shelter from rain and offered cool shade in summer.
SPIRES IN THE SANCTUARY
Rising to 4,964 feet above present-day sea level, Cathedral Rock is a monument to life 270 million years ago. Before these horizontal layers were uplifted, winds from the north deposited huge amounts of fine-grained sand—in shades of red, orange, and brown — along an ancient marine coastline.
Orange globemallow, purple delphinium, and red Indian paintbrush sparkle among prickly pear cactus and a variety of native grasses..
THE FALLS BELOW CATHEDRAL
From its headwaters deep in the forested Oak Creek Canyon to its confluence with the Verde River in the open desert, the waters of Oak Creek create a beautiful setting and an important home for plants and animals alike. In the Sedona area, the most abundant variety of life is found in these riparian areas.
