Happy Sedona New Year!

Wishing all a healthy and prosperous new year filled with happy memories!

Happy New Year Page Springs

I show a lot of landscape images of the red rocks of Sedona. Important Birding AreaBesides red rocks and great weather (mid 60ºs in January) we have Oak Creek and the Verde River that runs through our area. Lots of wild life is attracted to these areas. This crane sighting above was at the Oak Creek "Important Bird Area".  Also in this area is one of the largest fish hatcheries in Arizona.  Probably why you can see various birds like the crane above!

This area is a wonderful sanctuary for nature. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the holidays, this quiet refuge may be just what the doctor ordered! 

Page Springs HatcheryYou can enjoy a self guided tour of the hatchery. It supplies  well over 200,000 lbs of trout to Arizona rivers and lakes.  This is close to 60% of the trout stocked in Arizona. The economic impact on the state economy is around $185 million.

Each row is a "raceway" where fish all hatched in the same time frame are allowed to grow and "race" together.  

Hours open to the public - Daily 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.  (subject to change)

Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas - see map below - It is located on Page Springs Road about 10 miles from Sedona off 89A, about 20 minute drive. 

From I-17 take McGuireville exit (exit 293) turn west for approx. 10 miles to Cornville and turn North on Page Springs Road for 5 miles to hatchery entrance. It is the same entrance to the "Important Area For Birding".

You will also find a number of wineries off Page Springs Road! 

Enjoy!

Morning Sheri.

Monday saw a high of 16, not counting the wind chill.  Today a heat wave of 23 and by Sunday a high of 45.  60 won't be in our area until around March.  Baby it's cold outside
