There is a reason this is considered to be one of the most scenic stretches of highway in the United States.

We drove to the Grand Canyon from Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon. Scenic drive up, but an even better and more beautiful drive back down through it. It's only 25 miles between Sedona and Flagstaff, but the slow, curvy drive takes you a bit longer. Stop at the state park/scenic overlook at the top of the canyon for a quick... More
