Sedona, Arizona

I haven’t been through Sedona, Arizona for about 35 years and as expected it has changed dramatically since the 1970’s. Gone is the old funky town having been replaced by a tacky main street with too many t-shirts and ice cream parlours. And the art; tacky, tacky, tacky!

Fortunately much of the town off the main street is very pleasant although somewhat “high end”. Beautiful galleries have gorgeous $50,000 glass sculptures and $10,000 paintings. Excellent food can be found everywhere for every budget and the odd funky store still exists.

The scenery is what I expect most people visit for and it’s stunning. Forget going to the crowded Grand Canyon, this area is just as interesting, hundreds of trails are available for wandering and for dog lovers, you can even hike with your pooch.

Disregard the tacky main street and savour excellent Mexican food and homemade ice cream. For the budget minded “that’s us!” camping is available for $18 per night and the scenery is better than the $300 night hotel.
