The Mystery of Sedona, AZ

A dramatic drop down Oak Creek Canyon thrills the traveler with endless views, red canyons, and glorious thoughts of modern roadways. The elevation is steep, the journey even better.

Few places have the spiritual mystique like the rocky cliff lined canyons of Sedona, Arizona. Famous for it's visual spectacles of amazing natural rock formations jutting toward the sky. The Four Wheel drive trails that go through them in a wild excursion to reaches unknown, to the world famous and acclaimed golf courses that meander throughout the ridges. Add to it the artistic shopping, the food, the music, and the most desired art in the southwest.

Sedona is a perfect hub for a refreshing, mind resetting destination to allow your inner self a chance to gather a moment of Zen before you start again.


The heart of town offers everything from dining at family gathering to some of the area's renowned five star establishments that you'll tell your friends of, to the shopping at an area unique boutique store, and then drinking a never before indulged concoction at a restaurant with a view, and then wandering around the statues and adobe designed structures that artists write about themselves. All this amongst the spirit of the native inhabitants who rode wild through these hills, almost hearing the song of the night.


Grab a horse and hit the trails. Hey... grab a Jeep and Hit the trails. Of course after you hit a bucket a balls on the driving range of the well et golf club, that before you hit the art auction that gets your next conversation piece.

Find yourself down by the river for a romantic walk, hand in hand, near your favorite bed and breakfast with the freshest fruits for morning time. Or journey out on your own on foot or by car with your camera in hand, grabbing that epic shot to send home that personal postcard to the ones who are envious that you are here right now..

Beautiful. I'm in the middle of reading "The Twelfth Insight" by James Redfield and part of it takes place in Sedona where "the Native American spirit is still felt."

Glad I have the image of these photos to complement his descriptions.

I love Sedona! It is such a beautiful part of Arizona and of course Oak Creek Canyon to the north is spectacular as is the Grand Canyon even further north. For that matter, the entire State of Arizona is great. Can you tell that I like it? :))) Beautiful photos!
