Red Rocks and Dark Skies

Sedona, AZ’s main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations, which appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.

Sedona is also one of Arizona’s 19 Dark Sky Communities, so it offers pristine stargazing conditions in addition to its breathtaking landscapes. Lowell Observatory is located just under an hour’s drive away from this breathtaking community, so be sure to keep us in mind during your trip!
