|THE RED ROCKS OF
Often called â€œRed Rock Countryâ€� Sedona is a four seasons playground for everyone â€“ whether youâ€™re into history and archaeology;
arts and culture; power shopping; outdoor sports; or the spiritual and metaphysical, imagine doing all this in a backdrop of some of the most
spectacular scenery in the world.
Indeed, this picturesque city is surrounded by red-rock monoliths named Coffeepot, Cathedral and Thunder Mountain. At the north end of the
city is the stunning Oak Creek Canyon, a breathtaking chasm that even today, is wildly wonderful.
|Sedona's main attraction is its stunning array of red sandstone formations, the Red Rocks of Sedona. The formations appear
to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking
backdrop for everything from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Sedona is named after Sedona Miller Schnebly (1877â€“1950), the wife of the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated
for her hospitality and industriousness.
