Enjoying the Sedona Lifestyle is the name of this series.
Sedona maintains a year-round population of approx. ten thousand people, but we have between 2 to 4 million visitors annually. Even with our tourism, Sedona maintains a small-town atmosphere. This is part of the Sedona lifestyle.
We couldn't be happier living here in Sedona! Rick and I feel we have it all living in Sedona. There is the utter beauty and majesty of the surrounding red rock landscape and a mild four-season climate. This allows us to enjoy outdoor activities all year long. You name it, and we have it. You can't say that for other locations.

Some outdoor activities include hiking, biking, walking, rock climbing, golf, tennis, swimming, fishing, birding, jeeping, kayaking, and Plein air painting. One of my passions is getting outdoors and gardening. Our climate allows me to spend my free time enjoying this passion of mine all year long.
5-star resorts, restaurants, art galleries, and cultural events exist. Sedona and the Verde Valley are steeped in Western and Native American history. It is all around us. What could be better than living the Sedona lifestyle and Sedona dream? We live in beauty. Many of us consider it majestic! See more Sedona and the Verde Valley photos at the Sedona Photo Gallery.

Once in a Sedona Super Blue Moon...
These pics were taken yesterday, on the first day of September. Interestingly, this follows the last Super Blue Moon we will see in some time. The monsoon has kicked into high gear, resulting in the images you see here. As I write this, it is raining with some small bursts of thunder and lightning.
The Silhouette is Ship Rock near Uptown Sedona -
These images were taken at sunrise.
The sun peeked out long enough to create this rainbow in the west.

Coffeepot Rock shows the reverse sunrise during the early morning hours of magic time. Every day during monsoon offers a new canvas that Mother Nature paints for us.
God created the Grand Canyon, but He lives in Sedona..."
