ABOUT SEDONA, ARIZONA
Not long ago, Sedona, Arizona, was a quaint little artist community hidden away in the red rock canyons of northern Arizona, a well-kept secret among those seeking the road less traveled. Today, it is one of the top destinations for international travelers. Yet this idyllic little town of 11,000 souls, nestled between an array of fantastically shaped red rock formations with names like Snoopy Rock, Coffee Pot Rock and Camel´s Caravan, still is one of the last treasures of the American Southwest.
Sedona´s beauty is legend: Many world-travelers who have been privy to the sights of its red rock canyons, dotted by evergreen junipers and pinion pines and outlined against the ever-blue Arizona sky, rank this among the most magnificent places on the planet. Many who have been exposed to the serenity of an age-old landscape filled with mystical stories and magical energy return again and again to immerse themselves in its special vibrations. Mention this town´s name and be prepared to hear a happy sigh: “Ah, beautiful Sedona!”
Located halfway between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon, Sedona has become a hub for visitors to the Grand Canyon – and the splendor of its scenery has beguiled countless people to explore the depths of its majestic terrain, its ancient history and its rich folklore.
Sedona´s vicinity holds the memories of a thousand-year-old culture, still visible at several ancient ruin sites throughout the area. It is home to some of the most sacred sites and stories of the nomadic Indian tribes that roamed these lands for hundreds of years, and the iron content of its red rock cliffs are said to exude special energetic and healing powers.
Sedona´s world-class resorts and spas invite you to relax and rejuvenate amidst its breathtaking scenery, and several tour companies assist visitors year-round on their explorations of the many attractions of this area. They take you by wings, by wheels, by hoof or on foot on journeys through its vast desert gulches and canyons, on expeditions to its many cultural sites or on quests to discover its energizing and healing powers.
Sedona sits at an elevation of about 4500 feet below the southern rim of the Colorado Plateau, which spans the four corner states Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona. While the higher elevations on the plateau (around 7000 feet or 2100 meters) experience harsh winters and the lower desert regions around Phoenix are notorious for their extremely hot summers, Sedona offers the most pleasant climate in Arizona with summer temperatures peaking at around 100 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees Celsius and winter temperatures scarcely dropping much below freezing at night.
Come to Sedona and discover the significance of an old Arizona saying, “God was born in the Grand Canyon – but He lives in Sedona!”
