We leave the striking red rocks of Sedona, AZ, with mixed feelings. We loved the beauty of the high desert, a great hotel (Sky Ranch Lodge), the wonderful restaurants, and the local activities (hiking, Jeep tours, etc). But holy smokes, folks – wear your masks! Whereas in Colorado and New Mexico people take this virus seriously and mask up & space themselves out, people in Arizona cluster in groups without masks as if fresh air alone eliminates all risk. Wow.
