Sedona’s many red rocks have been given their names by their formations that resemble items such as a teapot, snoopy, steamboat, etc. However, there is a unique process in how Damfino Slickrock Canyon received its name. Back in the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps was mapping out the area when an engineer asked one of the workers the name of a treacherous canyon so he could identify it on the map. The canyon at that time had never been named so the partner replied, “Damned if I know.” The engineer thought his partner said “Damfino,” so that’s what he wrote down. And the canyon still bears that name.
