    Buddha ranks with the Bible

    by Jonathan_C Updated Sep 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For the non-Americans reading this there is something you must know about American hotel rooms -- nearly every one is equipped with a Bible in the bedside table. This is the result of the hard work of Gideons International. This group was founded over a hundred years ago by two travelling salesmen and and attempts to put a Bible into every hotel room in America.

    My brother made the exciting discovery that, at least in Sedona, the teachings of Buddhism rank right up there with those of Christianity. You can learn a lot about a place if you poke around in unexpected places! See the article below to find out who's placing the Buddhist books.

    Hats-off to the volunteers of Sedona

    There are so many volunteers working in Red Rock Country. You will certainly meet them at the Sedona's Visitor Information Centers. They are mostly retired citizens.

    These volunteers help maintain and protect the national forests. Each year, these volunteers put in at least 44,000 hours of volunteer service.

    They help offset the inadequate Federal funding.

    These good citizen-volunteers assist with the Forest Service with maintaining and building trails, informing visitors, and restoring damaged areas.

    For more information contact the Friends of the Forest, Inc., P.O. Box 2391, Sedona, Arizona 86339.

    Also, get in touch with Trail Resource Access Coalition of Sedona (TRACS) at 50 Yuca St., Sedona, AZ 86351.

    The other volunteer group is the Keep Sedona Beautiful (KBS) at P.O. Box 1066, Sedona, AZ 86339 or the Sedona Chamber of Commerce at 928-282-7722.

    A good portion of our community are hard-working Mexicans. I have found the Local's to be very friendly and helpful. Remember: People are People
    As with everywhere you go and do: Treat others just as you would like to be treated. Come see Sedona, our town and beautiful Red Rocks

    Sedona Time

    by cypher1 Written Jan 22, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sedona, AZ is surrounded by beautiful views and mountains. The people living there respect the environment, and have strong opinions about what should and shouldn't be allowed in the area. Sedona time is very slow and easy. The place is cordial, spiritual and healthy. Many of the residents have come from other parts of the USA or world to live near the red rocks.
    Appointments can sometime be delayed by photographers, tourists, and the general feeling of awe when first viewing the red rocks. Give yourself plenty of time to manage the 9 round abouts from Village of Oak Creek, SR 179 and SR 89 which branches off to West Sedona, or Uptown east Sedona. God built the Grand Canyon, but resides in Sedona. Enjoy!

    The Native Americans in the area presented a traditional dance near one of their shopping areas. They are a very regal and proud people. Please treat them with respect.This is not a place for bargain hunting-save that for the flea market.

    I bought my first hand carved Native American Flute here. These people are true artisans. The workmanship was fantastic and this musical instrument is one of a kind.
