Yet again another glorious rock formation in grand display! Pictures cannot do it justice because the enormous size and the numerous mountains are unbelievable!

The Red Rock Scenic Byway is Arizona Highway 179 in and around Sedona. A nice and easy road with lots of pull outs for scenic views. Several interesting geological formations like Bell Rock & Courthouse worth a photo or even a mild hike or walk.

If time permits, do both. They intersect in the town of Sedona. 89A goes North to South or visa versa. 179 is West of Sedona

While Sedona has a number of fine dining and resort options, I tried to enjoy more of the outdoors there. I just marvel at its beauty and wanted to enjoy the outdoors vs the indoors. But pick your preference.
