Read More News at >>

Several illegal outfitter guides in the Sedona area have recently been convicted, fined and banned from national forests for illegally operating commercial businesses and offering paid tours without authorization or special use permit. Mark Truesdell, operating under the business name Sacred Sites Journey, Georgina Rock of Air B&B Experience and Kurt Raczynski of Inner Journey, have all been sentenced to one-year supervised probation, which includes being banned from area national forests for a year. The convictions are a result of effective undercover work performed by Forest Service law enforcement and investigators. Forest Service officials say businesses are required, by law, to obtain the permits from the district where the activity will be provided.
