We were driving from Sedona to Flagstaff and had to stop at the bridge on 89A. We came across it unexpectedly and boy, we're glad we stopped. Got some great pics. Be sure to stop.

This 17-mile drive is just as spectacular as the one at Pebble Beach. The gorges, rock faces and sunlight make for incredible views.

We traveled north out of Sedona for about 15 miles, heading for switchbacks that we had been told about, that would take us to some great views. The switchbacks are tight and amazing. We would have liked to ride it on a motorcycle. After reaching...More

November is a great time to visit the Sedona, Flagstaff, Grant Canyon South Rim area. Be prepared for freezing (literally) nights but nice days that range from mid-50's to 70. Sedona actually has a bit of a micro-climate... More
