Autumn in the Verde Valley & Sedona Area

11  It is my favorite time of year in this area.  The days are superb, the nights cool       and stargazing is still magnificent from the Flying Eagle Country B&B.  The trees   are just hinting at turning colors, but still shading us from the daytime sun.  It      is a wonderful time to hike, visit the wineries, eat at our excellent local                  restaurants in Oldtown Cottonwood (6 minutes from here.)     Jerome and             Clarkdale are preparing for Halloween, and it is the best time to visit Jerome,          which is about 12 minutes from our B&B.  The Verde Canyon Railroad (10             minutes from us) will host OKTOBERFEST — check out their website.  And of        course, October 10th through the 12th is the 58th ANNUAL FORT VERDE              DAYS.  Lots of local history all around us.  Hope you will visit and make the          Flying Eagle Country B&B your hub and home away from home.

New Southwest Wine Center – A short walk from the Flying Eagle B&B

Yavapai College Teaching Winery Opening – Friday, Sept. 12 at 4:30 p.m. in Clarkdale.  The public is invited to help Yavapai College celebrate the opening of its Teaching Winery at the Southwest Wine Center on Friday, September 12, 4:30 p.m. on the YC Verde Valley Campus, 601 Black Hills Drive in Clarkdale.    The Teaching Winery, adjacent to the College’s vineyard, is part of the Southwest Wine Center, which will serve as the premier academic center supporting wine growers throughout the Southwest U.S. Combining education, research and rural economic development activity, the SWC will support the Southwest’s growing viticulture industry in achieving its potential as a significant U.S. wine-producing region.   Yavapai College, with the help of many community volunteers, has planted 9 acres to date in its 17-acre vineyard.  The College offers a 2-year degree program leading to an AAS in Viticulture and Enology, plus a Viticulture certificate that prepares individuals for various careers in the grape-growing industry.  College Wine Center
