What a Wonderful Way to Bring in the New Year!

We have not had any measurable snow in 2014 until the last day of the year.  The skies dumped the white powdery stuff all over us, to the tune of about 8 inches.  We got another 2-3 inches over night.  Here are some pictures we took right on Soldiers Pass and in our neighborhood.

This is THE Thunder Mountain.  Walt Disney was a big fan of Sedona.  In fact, he had a home in Sedona.  His "Thunder Mountain" coaster ride was inspired by this mountain.

The Fin and Ship Rock in Uptown and Jordon Park

This rock formation was named CoffeePot Rock because it resembles a percolator from the main road.

Our snow melts fairly quickly.  Here it is a week later and all that is left behind are a few patches of snow and ice where it is in the shade all day.  The temp was 67º the last couple of days.  Not what you would expect from an area that gets snow.  So, we enjoy it while it is here and bid it a fond farewell as it visits other locations on it's trip through the USA.

Good morning Sheri Sperry.  My bride and I love Sedona and visit those beautiful red rocks annually.  We've been on Devils Bridge and caught in a heavy snow storm several years back.  Another fun and beautiful Sedona AZ adventure for the books.

Oh my, what beautiful photos Sheri!

A word of caution though, posting this much beauty on the internet may result in a population explosion near Sedona.

Absolutely beautiful.  And the best thing about snow in Arizona is that it doesn't last for six months like some places!

John, Devil's Bridge is a great hike - you have to be in shape but it is sure beautiful as the trail climbs.  

Tom, It has been awhile since we have had any snow.  This was very welcomed especially on New Years!

Donny, Disney even has a lane named after him.  We have a lot of famous people who have 2nd homes here but it is very hush hush for their privacy. 

 

Bob, Many locals think it is too populated now! You go back 50-60 years ago and there were no paved roads in the tiny community.  

 

 Mike, We call it "polite" snow.   It doesn't overstay it's welcome!
