If you are like me and enjoy rock formations, this is a great place to visit. Going into town, through town and leaving, you are surrounded with beauty. Don't miss the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Tlaquepaque, downtown Sedona for shopping and Slippery Rock while you are visiting

I am kicking myself that we didn't spend more time in Sedona! We stayed in Scottsdale and drove to the Grand Canyon and stopped in Sedona on the way back.

We couldn't get enough of this drive! Be sure to drive through at various points during the day. The cotton candy skies at sunset are breathtaking!
