 information on Sedona...

Some of you may not yet be aware of what we call a "Sedona Moment" - those special moments in time that are unique to Red Rock Country.  This month, we'd like to share with you Roger Naylor's story...   


Some people play hooky but not me. I take hooky very seriously. Certain days demand one slip free from obligations. Like cool summer mornings beneath a sky as brilliantly blue as a Hank Williams' song. 


Marg's Draw, named for a mule owned by the first pioneer to settle in what would become Sedona, makes the perfect hooky trail. Marg the Mule would hide out in this scenic area to avoid work. To celebrate that irrepressible spirit I follow Marg's hoofsteps.    


The easy hike curves through Munds Mountain Wilderness, brushing past Copper Cliffs and Snoopy Rock. It crosses the draw at a lovely dry waterfall and ends at Broken Arrow trailhead, providing additional hiking possibilities. Much of the trail lays a stone's throw from town, yet the dense screen of vegetation provides a genuine backcountry experience. Instant access to hidden wonders is one of Sedona's many charms.  Marg would approve.   


Roger Naylor is a travel writer for Arizona Highways, Sedona Magazine and the Arizona Republic. He has lived in the Verde Valley for 15 years. Find Roger on Facebook at Follow him on Twitter: @AZRogerNaylor.

5th Annual Sedona Marathon February 6, 2010!


The 5th Annual Sedona Marathon will take place on Saturday February 6, 2010. The race is growing rapidly and Race Director Karen Livesay predicts a banner year.


In its four year history the marathon has received international acclaim, Japanese sports reporter Hajime Nishi has named the event one of his top ten favorite world-wide marathons and National Geographic Adventurer Magazine featured it as one of the great "instant weekend adventures."


Self proscribed marathon junkie and winner of the 2009 race, Chuck Engle said of the Sedona Marathon, "The Sedona Marathon was deceptively challenging amazingly beautiful and incredibly fun. Definitely a must do marathon."


The Sedona Marathon has quickly gained international recognition not only for its breathtaking course but also as a training opportunity.  It has drawn several Olympic competitors including Beijing Triathlon Silver Medal winner Simon Whitfield. 


Featuring three races, the full marathon, a half marathon and a 5kSmall marathon race,  participants are able to walk in all three races and one of the hallmarks of the Sedona Marathon is they come from all walks of life. Last year the youngest "athlete" on this breathtaking course was 3 and the oldest was 84.


The Sedona Marathon will also continue working with a number of charities in conjunction with the 2010 Race. Last year, nearly 200 runners elected to make their race more meaningful by committing to run on behalf of one of 5 affiliated non-profit organizations.


This year they have once again teamed up with the renowned Wharton Performance. Nicknamed "The Mechanics" by USA Today, the Wharton's are internationally known trainers, therapists, and authors who established their practice in 1989 and changed the face of human performance. They have worked with luminaries in the sports world from professional football players to Olympic gold medal winners. They have personally trained over 500 Olympic medalists. Phil Wharton has personally designed a series of downloadable training Mp3's for the Sedona Marathon and will be giving free training clinics prior to the event.


This is the race you can't afford to miss! Cheer them on, run for the hills or just come and experience the event. More information is available online at

Story Ideas


The Great Outdoors


Imagine floating through the air in a hot air balloon, drifting at the whim of the early-morning breezes.  There's not a sound to be heard, only the vast expanse of the desert beneath.  At four to five miles per hour, it's slow enough to get a good look at the landscape with its javelina, jackrabbits, bobcats, antelope, mule deer and other wildlife.


Then there's hitting the rubber on single-track trails, mountain biking at brake-neck speed through rolling terrain, arroyos, winding creeks and massive rock formations.  Or coasting along in a jeep, a Hummer or an ATV-or perhaps on horseback or foot, taking a deep breath of pleasure. Whatever the speed or sport, Sedona is an outdoor paradise for nature lovers. With its mild, four-season climate, bright clear skies and starlit nights, hundreds of trails for hiking and biking, world class golf, tennis, and aerial adventures in planes, helicopters and balloons, it's easy to see why nature enthusiasts return to Sedona again and again.

Upcoming Events

Greater Tuna is the first in a series of four comedic plays, each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the "third-smallest" town in the state.
