Driving this route is one of the best ways to enjoy the scenic vistas of Sedona. Drive around and enjoy a new view at every turn. I do wish there were more pull-offs for photo ops though.

Great views on the road. Take your time and take turns driving so everyone can see the views. Time of day and weather conditions continually change the v it we and make this drive worthwhile.
