As you are driving along, you start to see the red rocks. Contain yourself - it only gets better. We stopped and took pictures alongside the road, but the photo ops and landscape got even better as you neared Sedona.

We were fortunate enough to be staying just off the Red Rock Scenic Byway so were we blessed twice daily with the amazing scenery! So beautiful especially at sunset. Definitely worth your drive to see the beautiful area.

We took the scenic byway on our way into town. What a great welcome into Sedona! I’ve heard it can get quite busy but it’s worth it.
