A Look Back To 1976 Sedona
Then & Now
There were very few paved roads in Sedona
The 1970s saw a boom in the sale of property by farmers and ranchers. Resorts and satellite businesses that supported the tourist industry started picking up this land.

A closer look at the "Y"
Coldwell Banker Sedona is the first building on the right with blue trim.
This is Snoopy Rock. He is laying on his dog house and Woodstock is on his snout!
This image was taken with a 400mm zoom lens from my house.
The "Y" is now a Figure 8 which is 2 roundabouts about 1/2 block apart. It is still called the "Y". Coldwell Banker Realty is the first building on the right when you are going east from West Sedona into the Uptown Business District.
Sedona continues to improve traffic control to eliminate jams. This decorative center divider was installed the entire way through the Uptown business district. Three roundabouts were added and also controlled crosswalks.
Anywhere you go you will find views and more views and the roads are paved! Sedona is the second most popular destination in Arizona behind the Grand Canyon with over 3 million visitors a year. This trail is a 5-minute walk from my house.
