We decided to drive to Sedona and stop on the way back from Flagstaff on the way back to the Phoenix area. The roads were cleared and manageable and it was wonderful to see the change of scenery along the way. We are sure happy to have chosen to drive back this route rather than the main highway.

great hiking and scenery. Lovely towering pines, a great place to enjoy nature! We were here in the winter and it was still great, i can only imagine the beauty in the summer or spring.

We wanted an easy hike near Flagstaff with the famed views and trees of the area. Sandys Canyon Trail fit the bill!

I always love going out to the woods. There are so many different things to do out there! My hubby works for the FS on this forest, so he's always finding new places for us to go see. Get out and explore!

Loved everything, blown away by the size of the trees compared to lower elevations. Smelled wonderfully "cedar"!
