The following day we got up, went for a short hike near the resort and came back for a hot tub. I must say the room was very nice and well appointed with everything you need. The price was certainly right at $40/night. The pool was cold and we were told that the heater was not working.
We thoroughly enjoyed the hiking in the region with lot of spectacular vistas and hiking trails for every level. The week was a little long and I would say 4-5 days would have been plenty of time for us. Not a whole lot to do in Sedona for a week, at least not for us. On the trip back to Phoenix while listening to the news, we were shocked to hear of a double murder of a couple that were hiking the very trail we hiked the very day. Apparently they were shot by a high powered rifle while exiting their vehicle. The suspect was later killed in an altercation with State Troopers. Just proves you are never safe even in the most unsuspecting places. We always try to remind ourselves of that in our travels.
