Came this way from Phoenix and this is an unbelievable place. Every where you look it is even more scenic. The tourist information stop was so helpful in acclimating us to the area. Nothing beats Mother Nature for her beauty.

So much to see in this short drive! We started at the south entrance and exited on the north entrance. There was very little traffic so we were able to take our time and slow down to see the gorgeous views. It was well worth the time and a great activity for a chilly day.

Coming into Oak Creek and Sedona gives you a good idea that your stay here will be beautiful, spiritual, and peaceful. Such beauty remains awe inspiring even after being there for a week.

We chose a clear day to make this drive into Sedona. It was quite lovely and we enjoyed stopping for photos and admiring the scenery. This is an easy must do if you're in the area. There are several great hiking paths off this byway, too.

This drive will give you an overall view of the Red Rocks so you can pick a place to hike. Don't miss the Visitor's Center.
