We enjoyed the view and the hillside and mountains were all so beautiful. The drive was great and was through a wonderful area

We took the Red Rock Scenic Byway on our way home; we wished have read and found about it sooner. There are many trail heads and beautiful vistas. It is great way to get an overview of Sedona.

For sure. It's a well paved highway and very well maintained. Take the roundabouts slow through. They might be a tad tight.
