Hiking Jordon Park During Magic Time

Uptown Sedona Arizona

Hiking Jordon Park

Magic Time

Hiking Jordon Park during “Magic Time” is a very special treat. In my opinion, “Magic Time” is that time just before sunrise and just after sunset. The sun is just below the horizon and the spectrum of light is diffused through the atmosphere. The red light has the longest visible wavelength of light so it easily gets through the thick atmosphere layer just below the horizon. It can bounce through the atmosphere and not lose very much of it’s strength. This is what makes “Magic Time” so special in Sedona. The crimson color in our red rocks is saturated with the red light and images may actually look imaginary only because the red color is deeply saturated and captured and frozen in time.

As the sun continues to move through twi-light, our mind “sees” the changes in real time. This progression is very short. A photographer can lengthen the “Magic Time” by adjusting the aperture setting of the lens. This can also be done in post-rpoduction. A photographer who uses a professional camera that has a wide range of aperture, ISO and shutter speed which is also called “the exposure triangle”, can increase the ability to capture a low light image well past what an average eye can see.

The Golden Hour 

Often times, “The Golden Hour” and my opinion of “Magic Time” are interchanged. “The Golden Hour” is usually the time right after sunrise and right prior to sunset. This is where the sun is still above the horizon and the yellow spectrum of light is most visible. It allows the yellow wavelength to add a golden hue to the image. It is also why sunrises and sunsets are so dramatic.

Why Are Sedona New Construction Costs Skyrocketing?

Posted by On

Sedona New Construction Rising At Alarming Rate!

Sedona New construction Rimstone West Sedona

Lumber Costs Rising

SEDONA NEW CONSTRUCTION – I recently had a conversation with a very prominent builder in Sedona who puts out a quality home product. In the course of our conversation, he told me that he was very concerned with the cost of lumber and the availability.  His costs have gone up 25% since the weather or hurricane disasters that we recently experienced.  In addition the recent fires in California will be adding to the lack of inventory and rising cost. This has not even been figured in yet!

After doing additional research, I found that builderonline.com referenced an article from Calculated Rick Finance & Economics that lumber random lengths are up 25% from a year ago. CME, which is a Futures Exchange, states that lumber futures are up 45% year-over-year. 

New Custom Homes Are Still Available In Sedona Arizona

In the Sedona area, lumber costs are affecting our builders on new home construction. There is a small amount of land and lots available in Sedona proper. This limits home construction to one build at a time. Generally speaking, with all the costs involved, a resale home is a better deal. You just can’t build a home for what a resale home will cost.

New Development Construction Is Flourishing In Sedona’s Outlying Communities

But there are other areas such as Cottonwood, Cornville and Clarkdale that have seen large areas being developed by one or more builders. These new homes can be considered semi-custom builds and are becoming more attractive to those who just can’t find the resale home that fits their needs. 

Buyers Need To Consider

Typical lumber costs are between 60%-70% of the home building costs. Labor costs the other 30% to 40% (costowl.com). With building costs continuing to rise, buyers need to consider the pluses and minuses of buying new. Normally, Lumber costs vary at different times of the year, but these disasters have stressed the lumber market.

Pluses For Purchasing New

  • Did I mention the home is brand new!
  • If bought early, you pick out the finishes.
  • You may be able to custom design it – bump out a wall, add an extra garage, etc.
  • Modern open floor plans – some have 2 master suites.
  • You get a builder’s warranty – remember it’s brand new!
  • All appliances, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roof, etc. is all brand new!

Pluses For Purchasing A Resale

  • You can negotiate price much easier than on new homes. Seller may be motivated.
  • Generally, you get more for the money.
  • Mature landscape and possible hard-scape is already done.
  • You know exactly what you are getting – it is already complete!
  • Neighborhood is established.
  • You may get quality amenities that are absorbed in the negotiation.

Also check out my blog on steel construction:

“Why You Should Select Steel Instead Of Wood For Your new Home Construction”

Steel Construction in Sedona

PLEASE NOTE:

Always remember that as a buyer considering new home construction, you should be represented by a buyer real estate agent. Seller agents are there to represent the builder/seller and protect those interests.  As your buyer agent, I will be there to represent your interests and negotiate on your behalf. Give me a call to see how I can help you with your real estate needs.

Final December 2017 Cottonwood Market Conditions

Final 2017 December Cottonwood Homes for sale market conditions

 

Final December 2017 COTTONWOOD MARKET HOME CONDITIONS – First of all, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”. See the definition of Market Action Index above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

To analyze the Cottonwood AZ Market Report, An understanding of the city is helpful. It is about a half hour south of Sedona and located off highway 260 and the 89A. Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center. This is very appealing to many who need to be near medical facilities, doctors and other professionals. There are many medical offices around the hospital that provide all the services you might need. Go to LifeInSedona.com and select Cottonwood for more information. Old Town Cottonwood has been completely renovated in the last few years. It has the charm of the Old West and the modern flair of contemporary restaurants and boutique shopping. One of my favorite gourmet food stores is the Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders. You must go in there and taste the ultra fresh olive oils and balsamic vinegars they offer. This Old Town experience is another reason that the Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Cornville areas are thriving. Not only does this area bring tourism but the locals are fully invested in it’s success!

These Cottonwood AZ Market Reports will highlight 86326

As a bedroom community of Sedona, Cottonwood can be very appealing to many people. Cottonwood also has big box stores such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart and a large Fry’s Supermarket.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

How the Market is Doing 


Median Price 

The Median Price has remained at $289,500 overall from November. The top bracket has dropped an additional $13,000 from November couple that with a drop of $49,500 in the last two months and you can see that buyers might appreciate the $62,500 savings!. There is very little change in the 3 other tiers.

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


 

Inventory

Inventory has decrease a lot from November. The number of homes available this year is much lower than last year.  Fall selling season is over, and the median price in the top tier has continued to decrease. Low inventory generally favors the seller, but I do not see an upward pressure in pricing at this time.  New home construction is affecting the overall market. The new home prices are reasonable and many are taking advantage of placing their own stamp on this construction. Builders will provide a semi-custom home at an additional reasonable cost to the buyer. I strongly suggest the buyer is represented by their own real estate agent who will represent your interests. The selling agent represents the builder.

Days On Market (DoM)

The Days on Market – Overall – 1 week was added to the DoM. The brackets are mixed but still in the Seller advantage zone for all but the top quartile.Please note that new home construction may be affecting the resale market significantly.

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI in 3 out of the four quadrants continues to show a strong sellers market.  The overall MAI is trending lower at 35.7 points from November.

Interactive charts below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Bottom Line

Cottonwood is in the seller zone and but a buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate in the top quartile.  Homes are not staying on the market long in the other quartiles. There is about a 4.3 month inventory of homes (which is a 2 day drop from last month. The Fall selling season is over and and that is reflected in the in the Market Action Index. Serious buyers may be able to negotiate during the holiday period. 

Luxury Market of Sedona

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $865,000 for the top 10% in Sedona. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings for all of Sedona. For Cottonwood, the top 10% of active listings starts at $650,000 – (an increase of $50,000 over November 2017).  This just gives you an idea of how the active market of Cottonwood compares to the market in Sedona. FYI – the median price in Sedona 86336 is $825,500. 

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president uses the definition above for defining a luxury listing. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes.


 

MAI or Market Action Index answers the question “Hows the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory.  Index above 30 implies a seller’s advantage.  Below 30, conditions give the advantage to the buyer.

Buyer or Seller Market  (MAI)

The Market Action Index is showing has shown a downward trend because the inventory has increased. However actual inventory is still low for this zip code.  Basically, buyers should take note of this and understand that because of the low inventory the seller may not be as willing to make concessions.  Also,  scrutinize the Days on Market (DoM). The higher the number, the buyers negotiation power will increase in most cases. Buyers should be ready to purchase or they may lose out on the sale. The “Push Pull” point for supply and demand is an MAI of 30. Above 30 is a seller’s market.  The breakeven point is around 6 to 7 months supply of homes (condos) on the market.  

Large Chart

 

Interactive chart will continue to show current market information

Bottom Line

 The lack of inventory and higher single family home prices is putting upward pressure on the condo market. Many buyers are looking for the convenience of lock and go residences that are maintained by associations (HOA) at a reasonable price. Sellers have the edge in the market. Prices should continue to rise so be ready to make a purchase with little to no discount off the sales price.

What you will notice first are Crimson Red Rocks of Capital Butte and Thunder Mountain. June Market Crimson View homes for sale

In the northeast, you can’t help but see Coffeepot Rock.  There are many homes with views of Sedona looking to the east. This area is elevated from SR 89A.

Off in the northwest, you might gaze upon Chimney Rock, but be careful not to take your eyes off the road!  It is easy to do with these beautiful views. It provides views that are not available from the main highway passing through Sedona business district.

Three Minutes to Shopping – Restaurants – Medical 

Speaking about the Sedona business district, just one more reason this area is a favorite among residents and buyers alike is that Crimson View sub-division is close to the business district.  At the bottom of the hill is the Safeway shopping center and numerous restaurants close by.  You will find an Urgent Care as well as other medical facilities and professional offices within another four minutes of the intersection of Rodeo Rd and SR 89A.

Close To Hiking Trails

There are many trails right above those homes. The Stupa and trails leading to Sugarloaf Mountain are close by and easy to access. I have been up to Sugarloaf and there is an amazing view of the landscape above and below. It is not a difficult hike but will clear your head and allow you to enjoy the reason you moved here in the first place!

December Market Report ~ Big Park – VOC MARKET HOMES FOR SALE and MARKET ANALYSIS for 2017  – First of all, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”. See the definition of Market Action Index above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

VOC, Village of Oak Creek or Big Park also known as Sedona 86351 is the bedroom community of Sedona. It is located 20 minutes from the city center off highway 179. There are two zip codes in Sedona, 86336 and 86351. People choose this side of town because there is less traffic, good hiking trails, and a buyer can get more home for the same amount of money as Sedona 86336. It is also closer to the SR 179 for those who travel a lot.

These VOC Market Reports will highlight 86351

In this zip code, you will find a majority of single family homes nestled between some red rock formations. Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, Castle Rock and the back side of Cathedral are the most notable of the formations. You will also find more than a couple of golf courses including an executive 9 hole course. Even though there is some shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. The majority of the zip code has more affordable housing than the zip code of 86336.

2017 Big Park VOC Market report

 

2017 Big Park VOC – When it comes to Big Park/Village of Oak Creek real estate & Golf Resort homes for sale, you only need to go to the Village of Oak Creek (VOC) to fulfill your dream. Homes are sprinkled around the 45 holes on two golf resorts and one executive golf course.  For those who enjoy this sport, there is a home for you either close to or on a golf course.  But for those who like the serene atmosphere and beauty of a home straddling one of the beautiful and well manicured fairways this may be right for you as well!


Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI has been above 30 for all brackets the last two months. Currently all four brackets are in the seller zone.  However, This is where the Days on Market come into play for buyers. A home that has been on market for 290 days may allow for some negotiation.  There is such low inventory in the 86336 zip (Chapel area, Uptown and West Sedona that buyers are moving into the VOC area to purchase a home.  Even though the Big Park area is in a seller range, buyers may be able to negotiate with sellers because of the West Sedona demand. This has not changed from Spring.

Bottom Line

Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek continues to have very low inventory. Key in on how long a home has been sitting on the market. 

 A buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate.  The reason some homes are stale is because the seller is not willing to drop the price of the home. Keep that in mind when negotiating.

Sedona Information

In this zip code, you will find the majority of the shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging.

Market Action Index

The Market Action Index lost only one tenth, from November. 30 is the break even point between seller vs buyer advantage.   

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

^^^

Large Chart

 

MAI or Market Action Index answers the question “Hows the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory. Index above 30 implies a seller’s advantage. Below 30, conditions give the advantage to the buyer.

Bottom Line

The Sedona 86336 market is poised for a 2018 take off. The median price has dropped slightly, however this is December!  Right now, I think that buying power has increased but this will not last as we head into the first quarter of 2018. Buyers should continue to look at Days on Market. The higher that number, the better chances that they may be able to negotiate a discount depending on the seller. If you find a home you really want, buy it! My best guess is pricing and negotiating power is going to be a hindrance for buyers moving forward.

The Sedona Weather – Year In Review…

300 Days of Sunshine! 

Sedona Weather – Tracking “sunshine” as a statistic, was not easy. One has to be cognizant of the weather each and every day. To be accurate, this statistic needs to be recorded on a daily basis. My husband decided to take on this project for one year to see how accurate the claim was. Many areas that boast high tourism and lots of sunshine claim this statistic. But there was an inner curiosity to either prove or disprove the claim in Sedona. So the tracking began.

As the year progressed, the days with sunshine were definitely going to be over 280 but 300 might be a stretch.  As it turned out, the lack of rainfall and more days of high pressure contributed to the credibility of the claim that Sedona does have 300 days of sunshine!  Learn more about all the weather statistics from Sedona-Weather.com. Our weather station has records and statistics that go back to 2011 in many cases.

If you are interested in learning more about the Sedona real estate market or Sedona-Lifestyle.com, please give me a call or visit my website. Many people move here because of the pleasant outdoor weather which is present all year long.

Sedona weather White Christmas

Winter 2016-2017

In 2016, Sedona weather precipitation was almost 26 inches of rain and 12 inches of snow. This is the most on record in the 7 years of tracking history of the weather station at the Cottages of Coffeepot. At Christmas, most people want a White Christmas. We were fortunate to get our first White Christmas which was very exciting and really capped off the year. It is extremely rare to see freezing conditions. The days warm up and our sunshine will melt ice and snow rather quickly. Some snow will stay in areas that get no sun at all. Don’t be cavalier though. Winter conditions may cause ice in some area so be careful when driving or walking.

Winter – “Early” Spring 2017

The rain continued through the first 3 months of 2017.Sedona weather spring Another 7 inches dropped through March of 2017. When others are starting to get cabin fever, Spring had already started near the beginning of February and continued through the beginning of June. So discussing the “winter months” of January and February get mixed into the spring months of late March and April! The trees start blooming in early February. Our winter is more like most of the country’s winter.

With all the rain, Spring 2017, was really beautiful. Trees, shrubs and plants were blooming for many months. The temperature was very pleasant. There were only 23 days below 50º in the first 3 months of the year, (2 more days in December), normally the coldest months of the year. No days were below freezing for a high and only 8 days were below 40º. All but 1 came in January. Twenty-two out of 90 days dipped below 32º, and there was another 20 days in November and December that dipped below 32º as well.

Since our weather is very dry with little wind, you can put on a sweater and be comfortable if you are out running errands. The high in January 2017 was 67º. We did get 4.25 inches of snow in January. If you are staying outside for a significant amount of time without going indoors, a hat, gloves and a winter jacket may be appropriate.

 

Summer 2017

Sedona weather - summer monsoonWe had 23 days over 100º in summer. Fourteen days came in June. June generally has very little to no rain. Monsoon does not normally show up until the second week of July. The clouds and rain cool down the afternoon temperature. From July 10th to September 3rd, there were no days over 100º.

Lack of Humidity

Again, I can’t emphasize this enough. We have very little humidity, even during monsoon. This makes higher temperatures less noticeable and why we tell people to drink lots of water. It is easy to get de-hydrated. When there is less moisture in the air, no matter what season you are in, you do not feel the heat or the cold. This is one of reasons people like our weather so much. You can enjoy the seasons without the discomfort of feeling the weather.

The hottest day of the year was 110º. The heat spell lasted 13 days. But, once it was over, the days didn’t even reach 100º. There was only one other day in early September that went over 100º. The first day of 100º plus temps. was 6/16/2017. The last day of 100º was 7/9/2017, (other than 9/4/17 which was only one day). We did get about 6.5 inches of rain during monsoon in July and August.

Fall 2017

Every season is beautiful in Sedona.sedona weather - Fall Aspens FlagstaffThe climate is mild but you actually get the seasons. Fall is no different. There is color through out the season. It starts in Flagstaff with the Aspens in early October and the change of color meanders down Oak Creek Canyon until you get to Sedona proper.  Fall brings out the visitors from near and far to enjoy the crisp air and beautiful color. The picture below is Oak Creek Canyon taken from Midgley Bridge. Visitors should plan months ahead for accommodations.  If you enjoy hiking, get to your area early or risk walking extra miles before you reach the trailhead. West Fork trail is absolutely gorgeous and is preferred by most residents and visitors alike.

New Construction Clarkdale AZ – CLOSED – Last Work Day of 2017!

Posted by On

Last Day of 2017 – CLOSED – New Construction!

Mountain Gate

Clarkdale Arizona

Mountain Gate subdivion

New Construction – Newgate Homes built a charming neighborhood in the community of Mountain Gate, Clarkdale Arizona. Besides single family homes, large townhomes were also available. 

Clarkdale is located between Sedona and Jerome and only a few minutes from Old Town Cottonwood, the Verde Valley Medical Center and big box shopping.

My buyer, who was relocated to this area during the summer found this townhome and knew her children would love it.  Jen is a single mom who knew she could count on me to make her move as transparent as possible during her travels back and forth from Colorado to the Cottonwood area.

This townhome was supposed to be ready back in October, but construction challenges contributed to the late date. It wasn’t until last week that the Certificate of Occupancy was delivered!

The builder found another townhome for my client to live in and moved all her furniture when her current home was available. Newgate Homes also was very generous with closing costs and other upgrades.

This was the largest Townhome in the community at 2404 SF and 5 BD with 4 Baths!  It is also an end unit!

Sorry…Builder is sold out!  I can find you comparable homes just contact me!

There is new construction all over the Clarkdale and Cottonwood area. If you are looking for new home construction close to Sedona, major shopping and medical center at a reasonable cost, please let me know. Home sites and new construction are selling fast. Prices will rise and long waits will develop as the coming months unfold. I can help you find a home if you don’t see results below.

Sedona Winter Solstice – Shadows of the Solstice in Red Rock Country

Posted by On

Sedona Winter Solstice

Cottages At Coffeepot Winter Solstice

This Sedona image above was taken on the Winter Solstice this morning. Over the years I have watched and compared the shadows created by the sun as it rises in the morning.

Today I took this image of Coffeepot Rock and noticed something different that I didn’t realize before. There are no real shadows on the red rock. The sun is at it’s south-eastern most point today and the shadows are very slight.

The back wall of our home which is glass, is perpendicular to the sun on this date. Starting tomorrow the sun will appear to be moving back to the north. I was pretty sure I had an image of Coffeepot on the Summer Solstice and decided to compare. Below you can see the difference of the shadow on the rock.

Coffeepot Rock on Summer Solstice

In the image above taken in 2013 on the Summer Solstice, you can’t even tell that there is “spout” or beak at the very top because there is no shadow to define it!

See the images below to compare the definition of the rock.

Get Into The Christmas Spirit Sedona Style Via Scottsdale!

Posted by On

It’s Time To Write Out Your Christmas List! Were you naughty or nice? Kids will enjoy writing their list to Santa. 

Christmas At the Fairmont Princess!

Lobby at the Princess

Want to get into the Christmas Spirit? 

My husband and I always go to Scottsdale-Phoenix area to get our fix of “big city” Christmas shopping – Scottsdale Fashion Square and Kierland Commons are my usual go to spots. But this year we had heard a lot about the Fairmont Princess and have never had a chance to see the wonderful lights. 

There is lots to see and do at the Fairmont Princess along with a couple of different light projection shows with Christmas music!

You have to valet your car and if you do not spend $75, the valet charge is $85.  

Plan to eat there or spend a total of $75. I recommend La Hacienda Restaurant! 

Get your ticket validated and the parking is free.

Cottonwood Arizona 86326 Homes For-Sale

Report 11/27/17
November 2017 Cottonwood Market Conditions

November 2017 Cottonwood homes for sale

 

November 2017 COTTONWOOD MARKET HOME CONDITIONS – First of all, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”. See the definition of Market Action Index above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

To analyze the Cottonwood AZ Market Report, An understanding of the city is helpful. It is about a half hour south of Sedona and located off highway 260 and the 89A. Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center. This is very appealing to many who need to be near medical facilities, doctors and other professionals. There are many medical offices around the hospital that provide all the services you might need. Go to LifeInSedona.com and select Cottonwood for more information. Old Town Cottonwood has been completely renovated in the last few years. It has the charm of the Old West and the modern flair of contemporary restaurants and boutique shopping. One of my favorite gourmet food stores is the Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders. You must go in there and taste the ultra fresh olive oils and balsamic vinegars they offer. This Old Town experience is another reason that the Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Cornville areas are thriving. Not only does this area bring tourism but the locals are fully invested in it’s success!

These Cottonwood AZ Market Reports will highlight 86326

As a bedroom community of Sedona, Cottonwood can be very appealing to many people. Cottonwood also has big box stores such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart and a large Fry’s Supermarket.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

Bottom Line

Cottonwood is in the seller zone and but a buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate in the top quartile.  Homes are not staying on the market long in the other quartiles. There is about a 4.3 month inventory of homes (which is a 2 day drop from last month. The Fall selling season is over and and that is reflected in the in the Market Action Index. Serious buyers may be able to negotiate during the holiday period. 

Luxury Market of Sedona

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $925,000 for the top 10% in Sedona. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings for all of Sedona. For Cottonwood, the top 10% of active listings starts at $600,000.. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market of Cottonwood compares to the market in Sedona. FYI – the median price in Sedona 86336 is $825,500. 

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president uses the definition above for defining a luxury listing. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes.


 

MAI or Market Action Index answers the question “Hows the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory.  Index above 30 implies a seller’s advantage.  Below 30, conditions give the advantage to the buyer.

Aerial – Cathedral Rock – A Sedona Icon

Aerial – Cathedral Rock – A Sedona Icon

Cathedral Rock Aerial

360º Views

Most of the red rock formations in Sedona take on a different look from various locations.  Cathedral Rock is a special formation because it can be seen 360º from different well traveled roads. It is also one of the most recognizable rock formations in all of Sedona.  Of course this angle looking down is not very recognizable because it is rarely photographed from above.

I like this picture because you can see the airport sitting on a mesa on the left side and on the right side, you can look up through Oak Creek Canyon. If the helicopter was a couple hundred feet higher, the view would extend to Humphrey’s Peak which is an extinct cone shaped volcano in the Flagstaff area.

Hiking – Beginner or Expert 

Cathedral can be hiked either all the way around or can be negotiated at different levels of expertise and height. There is a 600 foot climb if you choose to do it! It has areas that allow sound to reverberate which creates a different vibrational level usually in a “saddle” location.

An Enigma

Cathedral Rock can be an enigma to those who visit it.  Many believe there are opposite vortex energy forces, a male and female influence. I can’t tell you what you would feel in an area of vortex energy. Everyone has a different feeling or no feeling at all.

Cathedral Rock

This view is the classic view that most people recognize. You are looking into the saddle area. This image is from Oak Creek in Red Rock Crossing.

Saturday December 9th 2017

11:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Music Concert – 1:00 PM

Christmas In The Park – You will be greeted by the traditional tumbleweed snowman. The weather will probably be much cooler by then.

Hot cider and cookies will be served to all. Marvel at the vintage holiday decorations that will be visible all over the museum as the fire glows hot in the fireplace.

Make a corn husk doll just like the settlers did back in the 1800’s!

Some old-timers will be located throughout the museum telling stories of yesteryear. Local authors will be available to sign books in the Museum Gift Shop.

On a side note, the architecture of some of the original buildings besides wood structures was stone or carved stone blocks, usually with tin roofs.

There are many of these types of buildings still standing today. Even though h istory is only around 150 years old, it is rich and can be found all around us.

Old homesteads can be accessed by 4 wheel drive vehicles in remote areas. One homestead borders Seven Canyons Golf Course in Boynton Canyon and can be seen on many jeep tours.
