Food scene

Great southwestern style food. The location recently moved to uptown, and provides the same great food and service as the prior location. Some of my favorites are the smoked pork cheeks, the buffalo mole poblano, and of course the amazing Elote! (but I will have to say we have tried almost everything on the Menu and never been disappointed) update, they are now a reservation only restaurant and book weeks in advance, but do have an online booking system! Well worth the effort! I also hear you may get take out as well but I highly recommend trying to get a reservation to dine in the restaurant.

We never miss this place on a visit to our home away from home! They smoke EVERYTHING! My personal favorite is the philly or the baked potato with a little brisket on top. (if you want a big delicious burger with pulled pork on top ask for the sloppy mustache **not on the menu ***) Not in the mood for all that , the salads are amazing as well. Don't forget to check out that big cookie at the register you won't be disappointed! Recently Colt has opened up a location in Oak Creek, so if you went to explore Bell Rock for the day, it would be a fantastic place for lunch, with a beautiful view!! (although old town is still our favorite)

probably my favorite local wine tasting in the area. (although I will have to say we went recently and due to lack of available employees the wait was about 1 hour for a tasting, were able to buy a glass or bottle and enjoy the beautiful outside spaces while we waited)

If you find yourself in Camp Verde, I would highly recommend planning your day to include a reservation to Moscato! With top notch service, and amazing house made food, you definitely cannot go wrong here. Reservation are a must. I had the Pescatore, and it was delicious, as was the warm homemade focaccia.

Hiking Sedona

I made my first trip to Sedona in early 2000, I was clueless to the many many trails in Sedona for hiking. Or even that there was hiking for that matter I went on a helicopter tour! The helicopter ride was amazing but, boy did I miss out!! I once read 130 trails, I am not certain of how many, most are day hikes and they range from Easy to Strenuous and I have yet to find one I did not love! My husband and I hike daily while in Sedona with our beautiful Springer Spaniels. We always try to find a new trail every trip and often do the same trails over and over. I have yet to get tired of them and always feel like I get a different view or perspective on the same trial! Hope you enjoy your hikes as much as we do!! *just a friendly suggestion go early and take plenty of water!! #happyhikers

Devils bridge is one of the most popular hikes in Sedona. With that being said, it can get busy and crowded. The city has been working on the parking in the area so there is less parking. With that being said, if this is a must do hike for your Sedona visit, I would highly recommend going around first light, parking will be better and the crowds will be less.

Sugar loaf is a great trail beautiful and an easy hiking option in Sedona. Very picturesque with great red rock views. This is also a great hiking alternative to reach, Devils Kitchen Sinkhole, Seven Sacred Pools and Soldier Pass Cave. As parking at Soldier pass is quiet limited. As always I recommend going early and packing plenty of water! Enjoy as this one is quite beautiful!

This area is one of our favorites. Keep in mind you will need a high clearance vehicle to reach the parking lot to access the trail head. From here our favorite hike in the area is to go right on to the hog trails vs following broken arrow. (there are connecting hog heaven, high on the hog and hog wash) Hiking in a circle connecting over to twin buttes back to the parking lot! We have also done Broken Arrow around to the hog trail then down twin buttes any way you do it your sure to enjoy this area. Hike is moderate, as always I suggest going early and taking plenty of water! Enjoy maybe I will see you out there!

This is one of my favorite ways to spend the day!! An old mining town with some beautiful views and history. The Museum is a great way to spend a few hours, there is a gold mine to tour, multiple local wine tasting rooms and adoreable shops while taking in the views and some history. Don't forget to stop by the Asylum for some more amazing views, history a drink or maybe a bite to eat!

If your looking of a way to keep off of your feet for a few hours an take in the area this is a nice way to do it, not fast moving but relaxing for the train lovers for sure! (I would recommend splurging for first class as it is a 4 hour ride you will likely be more comfortable)

Montezuma Castle is one of the best preserved Indian ruins in North America. The structure is built into a limestone cliff overlooking Beaver Creek. The Montezuma Castle cliff dwelling was built sometime between 1100 and 1200 CE. With five levels of rooms there were ladders to reach each level. The Sinagua used a wooden beam structure for the roof construction
