Gratitude in Sedona Verde Valley

It’s that time of year, Thanksgiving. While this year may be very different for all of us in terms of work, school, and home life, we have plenty to be thankful for and we’d like to share why that includes Sedona Verde Valley.
Sedona Verde Valley is located in the heart of Arizona. It’s centrally located and easy to get to. Whether you’re hopping in a car from the Phoenix area, flying over from California, or traveling across country in an RV, it’s the destination when you arrive. You can settle down in one of the communities: Camp Verde, Cottonwood, Jerome, Clarkdale, or Sedona, and find yourself marveling at some of the most amazing views in the world.
The views in Sedona Verde Valley are at the top of our list of gratitude this year. When times have been challenging or troubling, a look outside can help take us away for a minute, five, or even longer if we need it. Letting the mind wander over these incredible rock formations, changing leaves along the River, or the vast open spaces offer a therapeutic quality we can’t find anywhere else.
Even if we find ourselves troubled by 2020, we can take comfort in knowing these views and the magic of Sedona Verde Valley are not going away. If anyone cannot travel here soon, we invite you to escape through the pictures, videos, and connect on social media about what is missed, loved, and will be enjoyed in person one day soon.
We’re also grateful for the ability to get outside and enjoy these views up close and personal. We can get out on a trail in any of our communities on foot, bike, horseback, or even ATV and enjoy adventure without seeing anyone. The wide open spaces have been a big gift in 2020 and we’ve welcomed more visitors on our trails than ever before. While we love that and sharing our spaces, we’d like to remind everyone to show appreciation and gratitude by leaving no trace. It’s so much more special when we leave only foot prints and take only photos and memories.
As we approach Thursday and celebrate Thanksgiving in what may be the most different way we have ever done, we ask everyone to stop, take in the view and let’s all be grateful for that.
