THANK YOU for your support! When I started this website about 2.5 years ago, my goal was to provide current and useful information about the people and the place I love and respect so much, as well as beautiful landscape photography. I decided to add a weather station and other pages to celebrate our military and first responders and create a page of special videos that have touched my heart strings or funny bone. I will continue to strive to make "clicking" on this website an enjoyable experience for you.
As always, your feedback is not only welcome but appreciated.

New Webpage Added!! - Sedona Calendar of Events - Added because of the Holidays - This will be a permanent feature - Includes descriptions and links of the event. Four different sources used to gather information about upcoming events.
"Top Of The Bell Rock Club" - Picture is courtesy of Rick M Sperry - All rights reserved 2012. - This picture was taken during the 2012 hiking season. There is a Facebook page moderated by Peter Gersten for members of the club. You must have been guided by Peter A Gersten or Rick M Sperry to be included in the club. Fortunately Peter and Rick are experienced climbers of Bell Rock and they make the experience a memory you will never forget. It has been a life altering experience for most members. The climb to the top is not for the faint of heart. You do need to be in good mental and physical health. Once you are at the top, there is a celebration and meditation for some. The view is phenomonal and breathtaking. Peter and Rick have worked with well more than 100 people to help provide this experience of a lifetime.

Sedona AZ - September 3, 2012 Sedona/Village of Oak Creek Sheriff Substation Full Time Staffing Arrives. - The YCSO sub-station located at 6446 Highway 179, Suite 217 Sedona AZ 86351 is now fully staffed. Prior to September, the facilty was staffed with a full-time receptionist only. This sub-station can now provide better response times for emergency or criminal activity. Deputies work the areas they are assigned. VOC, unincorporated areas of Sedona, Page Springs and Cornville are part of Sector One which is in the Eastern Area Command.
Criminals will not be as bold to take chances because response times will be greatly improved. In the past, it was widely known that crimes were able to be committed because the get-away was easy. Not anymore! There will be a Sargent and four deputies stationed in VOC. This sub-station is in the budget for YCSO in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. Find more information on Village of Oak Creek.

Construction on the first Climbing Lane on the I-17 started last week. - Camp Verde AZ - January 21, 2013 -
The climbing lane will start south of Camp Verde and proceed two miles to the top of Copper Canyon (mileposts 280-282). As part of the project, ADOT will add an auxilary lane between SR 260 and General Crook Trail traffic interchange (milepost 285). Large trucks will be able to gain speed when entering traffic. These lane additions will provide a safer lane for trucks and slower moving traffic to travel in.
For those who travel on this highway extensively, there will be some full closures of I-17 due to required blasting. This first phase will last most of 2013. There are three planned phases. The next two have not been scheduled in ADOT's Five Year Construction Program. The first phase has been funded but the rest have not been funded.
