Sedona, Arizona, is only about 130 miles from Phoenix. What started
as a small ranching and farming settlement that was known for its apples,
is now an area that has become a haven for contemporary and traditional
artists, and retirees. Sedona has a rugged beauty that has attracted
these artists. The surrounding countryside contains the Red Rocks
region, a beautiful area of reddish-orange sandstone formations. The
rising or setting sun makes these formations appear to glow, and tourists
have poured in to see them, sometimes via guided tour buses. These
unusual rocks, which contrast with the backdrop of surrounding forests,
are found only in Sedona. The town of Sedona also offers upscale
boutiques, galleries, and other specialty shops. Restaurants and
lodging facilities are widely available in the area.
