Truly an E Ticket Ride
Sedona, AZ October 25, 2011) – The town of Sedona has more than resorts and gift shops. It has Oak Creek, which bubbles from springs at the head of the canyon, first as a trickle and then into a flowing current. Then, after some 30 miles, it joins the Verde River just outside Cottonwood. In the summer the creek provides relief from the summer heat and is a favorite getaway for Phoenicians. In the winter Oak Creek is a raging river, Cascading over the rocks in the riverbed and sometimes into the adjoining neighborhoods lining the creek. Spring is refreshing as new leaves appear on the sycamores and the pine trees give off their scent of the coming summer season, But in the fall, the green leaves become brilliant yellows, oranges, and reds. Then, the intense colors seem to sink into Sedona at season’s end, and around the next bend is winter. Truly an E Ticket Ride.
