My family was surprised that a desert could be so beautiful!

Sedona is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. Take a short drive up Hwy 89A to Oak Creek Canyon. You will enjoy the tree lined Hwy, red rock formations, and a stream that runs along side most of the hwy. Pull off anywhere along the way and watch for birds. There are several nice places to hike and explore. While in Sedona you will not want to miss the Tlaquepaque Art Village.  Wonder around in the Mexican styled village looking in galleries and drinking a smoothie. Next to the Tlaquepaque Art Village (behind the tennis facility-next to the hotel) is Mia's Place Wildlife Habitat. (sorry, Mia doesn't have a web page to link you to.) It's a great place to bring children or people new to birding. It's a lovely park setting with bird baths, feeders, benches, and a stream that runs along the edge which attracts lots of water fowl. There is a kiosk in the middle with pictures of birds. As you lift up the bird pictures, you will hear the recorded sounds of that bird. Mia picks a bird to highlight for each month and has info on that bird at the kiosk. I was there in August and the bird of the month was the Goldfinch. If you ever want to see tons of Goldfinches, go to Mia's Place in August!

If you have people with you that are not into birds (heaven forbid!) there is a miniature golf course and a life size chessboard to entertain the non-birder types while you enjoy an hour or so of peaceful nature.
