Decided to make this our final day in Arizona before returning back to Georgia. So glad we did!! The rock formations and landscape were stunning -- I couldn't stop looking and felt as though I were in a dream! This route was great and had amazing views from every seat of the car.

If you are in the area, don't miss this drive! The views are stunning. From the beautiful forested areas, to the large red rocks and cliffs, there is much to keep you enthralled while traveling this road.

Very nice views of the mountains and red rocks. Don't have much to say about this either but I do prefer the scenic routes as opposed to just regular highways.

We drove this on our way to Sedona from Phoenix. As one approaches Sedona, the rocks become visible. Worth a few stops and photos along the way.

The only problem with this is if you are the driver. The views are so distracting that it is hard not to look away from the road

It's a short scenic ride but worth seeing the rock formations. We took this ride from Wyndham Sedona to the Grand Canyon
