Twenty miles Northwest of Sedona lies the little town of Clarkdale. Founded in 1912, the place was originally a mining town. Today, the population is just more than 3,000 residents and the economic base is related to various industries including tourism, plastics and cement. For 10 days beginning the first Friday in December, you may view the collections from local artists at the annual "Made in Clarkdale Art Show" event. Clarkdale is also the location for daily tours of the beautiful canyons from the Verde Canyon Railroad .
I enjoy the train. I enjoy being able to ride in the open, take pictures, the tunnel, the singing cowboy, and being where no cars go..I have enjoyed it twice!! In February you can see the eagels nesting.
On January 26, my Mom, husband and I had experienced a "journey" on the Verde Canyon Railroad. This experience will not be forgotten. Their brouchor claims that passengers are enthralled as the train rolls past towering, crimson cliffs, and many other spectacular, panaramic views totally distinctive to this unique,geological area. Well, this may be true if the weather cooperates but unfortnatly, on the day we had tickets for this train ride, it rained. We were also unfortunate to be sitting on the left side of the train as it left Clarkdale. This side of the train has a view of the wall of a towering cliff. The train passed within a few feet of this wall and our view was not appealing. Since it was raining hard and also cold this day we did not choose to ride the OPEN-AIR viewing car. As the train left the depot the attendent on the train announced that the seats we were sitting in would be ours for the entire four hour trip. The seats on the left side of the train cost the same as the seats on the right side of the train. The right side enjoys the views. Since it was raining, the so-called climate-controlled car windows were fogged up during the entire trip. We could not even get a view from across the asile because the windows were fogged. Also the brouchor advertises live music. This was also not offered on January 26, 2005. Since tickets for this train are purchased in advance, I felt rain checks should have been offered to customers. This did not happen. I am sorry to say that this was one of the worst tours I have ever taken.
