Sedona is a thriving city of arts and culture, fueled by tourism brought here to the heart of Red Rock Country. The community that straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the Verde Valley of northern Arizona. The population was 10,192 at the 2010 census.
Founded in 1902, it has recently become a gathering place for artists, outdoor enthusiasts, cowboys, and golfers. This makes going to the grocery store an interesting event no matter what time of day you choose. Some members of our spiritual community believe that the earth’s energy flows around the red rocks and is concentrated into powerful locations some call vortexes.
One of Sedona’s main attractions 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 setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking backdrop for everything from spiritual pursuits to the myriad of incredible hiking and mountain biking trails.
Sedona is situated in a unique geological area that has mesmerized tourists for decades. Indeed, this picturesque city is surrounded by beloved red-rock monoliths named Coffeepot, Cathedral and Bell even Snoopy because their massive shapes resemble these distinctive objects. Also, the site of this memorable city marks the mouth of unbelievably beautiful Oak Creek Canyon, a breathtaking chasm that even today, is wildly wonderful.
