Do You Have Sedona Red Rocks Fever? 

In Part 1 - "Once In a Sedona Super Blue Moon..." I presented an overview of the Sedona Lifestyle.  But what was the real magnet that attracted us to Sedona? I will explain below.

Those with a severe case of red rock fever may lose some sleep and become anxious and frustrated because they did not plan enough time in this beautiful and breathtaking area. Some of the symptoms of a person with the “fever” are: they may try to pack too much into their time in Sedona red rock country. Other symptoms include an extra hike or bike ride, maybe a Red Rock Jeep tour, or just one more visit to a vortex before you leave.

Sedona Brings A Sense Of Adventure To The Soul...

As you analyze the phrase, you anticipate what you might see around the next turn, whether hiking or driving. When you experience the sights, the sounds, and the smells of pine trees, nature, and the red rocks, a feeling of euphoria may come over you. Hence, the name "Red Rocks Fever"! I know you don’t want to leave, but you must return to where you came from…

or do you?

Maybe you do like my husband did….“Sheri, find us a REALTOR®!” 

I am not saying everyone who comes to Sedona gets the bug, but many do. They will wander into my office and ask to see some property. Like myself, they didn’t plan it, but come hell or high water, they will find a place for a vacation or a second home.  Maybe they will retire near one of the golf courses or get a home near a trailhead so they can go hiking every day.

 So...How Did We End Up In Sedona?

Enchantment Resort in Boynton Canyon

I surprised Rick with a long weekend at the Enchantment Resort in Sedona.  The red rocks of Boynton Canyon, part of the Seven Canyons, caught our attention.  We had a casita with an outside deck.  When Rick saw the stars and the Milky Way that night, he told me to find a REALTOR®.  We had been looking for a vacation home and a possible place to retire.

We checked out Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and Florida.  But none of those locations had the combination we were looking for.  Sedona was an easy drive back to California. It had a small-town atmosphere and dark skies that highlighted the Milky Way. The weather was another significant factor with a mild four-season climate.
