Sedona, Arizona is breathtaking in every respect. A place where souls rejuvenate. The USA Weekend Annual Report considers Sedona “One if the 10 Most Beautiful Places in America”. Located about 150 miles north of the Phoenix and Scottsdale area. Sedona AZ sets at about a 5,000 feet of elevation where temperatures average about 15 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the Valley of the Sun. It’s really a four-season vacation paradise. Its landscape is uniquely different than any other place in the world.
Although Sedona’s year-round population is only about 10,000, it attracts over 4 million tourists every year. It is called “Red Rock Country” with towering crimson red monoliths, buttes and spires that reach high into blue skies. Secret canyons keep ancient dwellings of past civilizations hidden. Native Americans consider the Sedona area a spiritual place where vortexes of the earth’s electromagnetic energy is believed to emit healing energy. Supposedly the magnetic energy is about nurturing and opening the heart to promote a stronger connection to one’s emotional side.
Sedona sets at the base of Oak Creek Canyon that begins a winding journey of 2,000 feet of elevation gain to the top of pine-forested rim. Once described by Rand McNally as one of the Five Most Scenic Drives in the USA, Oak Creek is an awe-inspiring collection of the most diverse landscape in America. The canyon was carved by the shimmering waters of Oak Creek bordered by Aspen and Oak Trees with dense vegetation. All this beauty is back-dropped by towering red rock cliffs. No matter the direction, every scene is a picture postcard view.
Blended into the scenery are lodges, vacation rentals and quaintly quiet bed and breakfast accommodations. Hike within nature’s splendor, fish for trout or just sit awhile and soak up the serenity. Sedona is a showcase of red rock mountain buttes painted by nature against clear blue skies. The entire area features world class resorts that offer just about any amenity you can imagine. Some set beneath towering cliffs while others line the banks of Oak Creek.
