Southwest: Sedona in the Snow, Take Two

Judging by the response of the locals, snow, particularly heavy snow, is a rare event in Sedona Arizona. At the end of 2014, the weather forecasts predicted that a major winter storm would hit northern Arizona. In a normally dry desert area, the impending precipitation sent residents and visitors alike scurrying to the grocery stores to stock up on supplies for the coming snow apocalypse. The forecasts were not wrong. By New Year’s Day, several inches of snow were on the ground and the red rocks where splotched with white patches.

Though snow in Sedona might limit some of the outdoor activities, it does leave behind a spectacle. Indeed, it is hard to find a Sedona photography gallery that does not feature at least a couple of pictures of Sedona in the snow. Having “survived” a similar storm a couple of years ago, we looked forward to the temporary makeover of the red rock landscape. Sedona touched by snow is a sight worth seeing.
