Coffeepot Rock – Different Faces – Different Times in Sedona Arizona
As Coffeepot Rock is viewed from many different angles, it will take on a different look. It may appear to be a different rock. It got its name from the coffee pot that cowboys used on the range.
There are several examples below.
Can you see the different faces?
Coffeepot Rock ~ Monsoon – Magic Time At the Coffeepot Cottages
Coffeepot Rock in 1962 by my husband’s uncle who was visiting from Chicago. It is prior to sub-division development (Sedona 1-2) in this area. Most of the roads were dirt.
This is an old movie set (see picture below) from “Johnny Guitar” (1954) starring Joan Crawford and Sterling Hayden.
We have the original photo (above) and have scanned it and improved the color quality through photo apps.
By accident, I found the picture above on the internet being offered for sale as a postcard! Imagine my surprise!

This angle is where the iconic rock looks most like the native American depiction of “Standing Eagle”
On the other side of the gates to the Cottages At Coffeepot
This is where the “face” of the eagle shines through. At one angle, the rocks behind it appear to be the wings starting to spread.
