Just passed thru in & out of Sedona, but seems close enough to stay there sometime, if can't get a room in Sedona. Ate lunch on the creeks flowing waters in Sedona at L'Auberge. Fab place to go for lunch or dinner.

Oak Creek Canyon is in a densely wooded area and has cool flowing water amidst some very soothing woodland. Great place to sit and ponder and get your Thoreau moments. nice for a picnic too.

Absolutely beautiful scenery on this route from Sedona to Flagstaff. Many trails although they were closed due to torrential rains that plagued the area yesterday. When the weather is good there are plenty of turn off to view the mountains and take pictures.
