Quote: I'm not sure what we expected, but in just one week Sedona became a place we talk about to all of our friends, even three years later.

We ended up in Sedona on a fluke because a timeshare came available and my husband had driven through the red rock the year previous on a business trip and thought it would be worth exploring.
