Having our property nestled along Oak Creek Canyon certainly has its perks during the hot summer months.  Unlike the rest of Arizona, or even nearby  Sedona proper, our shady trees and close proximity to cool, creek water make for a much more pleasant and manageable summer temperature.

Winter along Oak Creek is similar to summer in its contrast to the rest of Sedona; with a lower elevation than the rest of the town, it is fairly common to have a beautiful white winter at Briar Patch Inn.  Since our blog is new and you readers may be planning your holiday vacations early, we thought it would be fun to share with you a bit of what the Patch can look like in a colder season.  These pictures were all taken this past December 2012, when we had a truly white winter.

We hope you are enjoying your summer.  Please come and visit us soon!
