The story goes that Walt Disney, who once had a home in Sedona, was so inspired by the beauty of Thunder Mountain that it became a theme park concept — Big Thunder Mountain. Fact or fiction, Disney did spend time in Sedona and it’s easy to believe that such a creative person had to have been inspired by the Red Rock Country, therefore becoming an influence in a lot of his work.

While in Sedona recently, we went on a backcountry jeep tour taking us behind Thunder Mountain and one of the “fun facts” we were told was Disney and Thunder Mountain — what myths are made from.
