June has been deemed “Great Outdoors Month” by Gov. Jan Brewer as she urges Arizonans to get outside and enjoy what the state has to offer. For locals and visitors of Sedona, that’s not a problem.

rick Perez, of Red Rock Rebels, a softball team of staff members from West Sedona School, hits balls off a tee at Posse Grounds Park on the morning of Wednesday, June 12. Perez has been practicing for the last five weeks to get his swing back, because it has been 18 years since he last played softball.Sedona and the surrounding area offer an abundance of opportunities to take advantage of Arizona’s outdoors including hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, camping and biking, plus numerous events at state parks in Northern Arizona. Doing all that in the red rock scenery isn’t half-bad either.

Joseph Aulwes, of Des Moines, Iowa, enjoys the red rock scenery of Sedona during a run on a vacation with his family. Gov. Jan Brewer deemed June as “Great Outdoors Month to urge Arizonans to get outside to enjoy what the state has to offer.“Arizonans should get out and experience Arizona’s beauty and enjoy healthy activities such as biking, swimming, hiking and fishing in the month of June,” Brewer said. “Events such as [the Verde Valley Fishing Fun Day] at Dead Horse Ranch State Park have a significant economic impact on the communities and counties of Arizona.”

In recognition of Great Outdoors Month and National Fishing and Boating Week, which happened the first week of June, Verde Valley Fishing Fun Day included games and activities for children of all ages and free catfish fishing in the lagoon.

But just because National Fishing and Boating Week has passed, it doesn’t mean people can’t still enjoy those activities in the nearby Verde River.
