Snoopy’s Belly

by: Editor on 10/15/2017

 

You’ve likely seen this aptly named formation in photos and movies. Just outside of downtown, a little imagination and the right angle turns one of the state’s famous red rock formations into an image of Snoopy sleeping on top of the dog house. Located in Little Shane, Sedona, it’s pretty tough to get a clear view from close to the formations. Instead, head to Little Lane right off of Highway 89 and north of the Highway 179 intersection. Here, Snoopy is sleeping just east and to the right of the larger red rock formation.

There’s also Lucy Rock nearby, and both formations can be seen somewhat from nearly every part of Sedona. Snoopy Rock, also known as Snoopy’s Belly, was originally named Saddle Back Rock. However, so many people agreed it was clearly the beloved character that it was officially renamed.

Although Snoopy’s Belly is certainly a unique name, it and Lucy Rock are far from the only formations named after what they resemble. In and near Sedona, there’s also Coffee Pot Rock. Spend a little time looking closer at the formations, and you just might find some images that jump out at you.

October is the perfect time to stroll outdoors, taking in the red rocks and enjoying their natural beauty.
