The storms have moved on and the sun will be shining in Sedona, Arizona this weekend! We have had a fairly mild winter this year in the red rocks, so we can’t complain too much about the storms on Sunday and Monday. But we are happy for our guests that are visiting this weekend, it’s going to be a beauty! The clear skies and warmer temperatures arrive just in time for 1st Friday Evening in the Galleries on March 6th and the Jerome Art Walk on the 7th! Don’t get me wrong, you will still need a moderate jacket in the early morning and evening hours. If you are visiting Phoenix to catch some spring training games consider visiting us in the red rocks this weekend, we still have a few rooms available!
