At Enchantment, the dramatic red rocks of Sedona’s Boynton Canyon set the tone for an experience beyond comparison. As a guest of Enchantment, you have access to the best life has to offer – a connection to nature, exhilarating adventures, deep relaxation and that feeling of awe and wonder, again and again. Also known by the Apache name Che-Ah-Chi, Boynton Canyon has an intriguing history that includes dramatic earth changes, prehistoric ruins, creation stories, Native inhabitants and healing waters. The canyon, which was formed by the prehistoric waters that covered the Southwest leaving behind incredible red rock formations, is a place of immense healing, natural beauty and energy. This month we have even more reason to commemorate the beauty and wonder of our landscape, as the National Park Service celebrates its Centennial Birthday on August 25, 2016!
The National Parks Service, characterized this remarkable milestone perfectly – “The Centennial will acknowledge the achievements of the past 100 years, but this celebration is really about the future. It’s about kicking off a second century of stewardship for America’s National Parks and for communities across the nation.” Like the National Parks, Enchantment prides itself on preserving what matters most; heritage and the environment. We see ourselves as stewards of Boynton Canyon and delight in the idea of introducing future generations to our beautiful location. We believe it is important to celebrate the earth and its resources, while maintaining a deep and abiding respect for the land surrounding the resort. It is this everlasting respect that has led Enchantment Resort to establish the Boynton Canyon Preservation Fund, in cooperation with the National Forest Service. To further educate our guests about our incredible landscape, trail guides are available for nature tours to provide information about the flora, fauna and Native American archaeological sites, as they lead them along canyon trails. Through Camp Coyote, children also have the opportunity to learn about nature in this beautiful, ecologically diverse land.
Come experience the wonder of Boynton Canyon for yourself, and join us at Enchantment Resort to Celebrate the Centennial of our National Parks with our Grand Canyon by Air Package.
