I just returned from one of my favorite places - Sedona, AZ. Such a special place, the Red Rock Country is a place of intensely blue skies, greens of all colors, and red, red rocks, a place of tremendous contrasts and many personalities. Offering something for visitors of all ages; new age seekers, big-city refugees, outdoor enthusiasts, artists, retirees and families from all over enjoy the Oak Creek Canyon and its surrounding ragged bluffs. Home to more than 500 types of plants, 55 mammals and 180 species of birds among its abundant wildlife; it is a perfect spot for parents and children alike to enjoy healthy, activities like hiking, biking, rock climbing, golfing or just sitting by the creek to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. It is also home to world class art and delightful dining if you want that to round out your stay.
I don't want to post a travel log but I do want to say that Sedona is worth a visit. When I am there, I just seem to relax and enjoy the ancient land and its quiet spirit. People smile and the traffic flows at 35 miles an hour; providing a lovely getaway to my sometimes hectic life elsewhere. If you haven't experienced Sedona, try it. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't love it.
