From Bend OR.....I know it's apples and oranges....but seems like a solid choice for Sedona.....too bad it's not for the Peaks Ranger District....

New ranger selected for Red Rock Ranger District

SEDONA, Ariz., Aug. 27, 2019 - The Coconino National Forest Supervisor has selected a new ranger for the Red Rock Ranger District after Nicole Branton moved earlier this month to serve as the deputy forest supervisor on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington.

Amy Tinderholt was selected as the permanent ranger for the district and comes from Deschutes National Forest in Bend, Oregon, where she left her position as the deputy district ranger of the Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District.

"We're very excited to welcome Amy to northern Arizona," said Coconino National Forest Supervisor Laura Jo West. "She will be a tremendous asset to the Red Rock Ranger District and brings with her a wealth of experience, positive outlook, and a fresh perspective of the issues in such a busy district."

Tinderholt is a graduate from the University of Arizona and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resource Management. She is a seasoned leader, specializing in recreation endeavors and partnerships, and experienced in firefighting.

"I am excited about returning to the southwest and hiking in our beautiful landscapes," said Tinderholt. "The Red Rock Ranger District is an exciting place to be, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve as its ranger."

The District is comprised of approximately 487,000 acres and encompasses the Sedona area and its colorful collection of buttes, pinnacles, mesas and canyons surrounding the red rock vistas. Over the years, the district has served as the setting of many western novels, movies, paintings, photographs and other works of art.

Actually the new(ish) Ranger for the Flagstaff District comes from a recreation background unlike his predecessors. He's been quite good to work with, quickly responds to emails or phone calls, and is currently making MEDL a priority. I could also make the case that he got the forest reopened when FWPP folks wanted it to remain closed.

The Flagstaff Ranger District also has a new Rec Staff officer replacing Brian P who is now the Recreation Prog. Mngr for the entire Coconino. Flag District also has a new trail coordinator. Red Rock District is still hiring someone to replace Adam who of course replaced Traildoc's favorite foil Jennifer. Hopefully they can keep on the dedicated trail staff that have been killing it.
