If traveling in the Sedona area, you must take the Scenic Byway, on route 179 South, between Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek. Beautiful, colorful, huge buttes and mountains on both sides of the road along the valley between.

These mountains are beautiful!!! An absolute must see. It’s an easy park just to take pictures or you can hike (we didn’t but others were)

There is no more beautiful place on earth to visit. Pictures do not do it any justice. You have to experience it in person to appreciate it.

Good road, well marked, and beautifully scenic. It takes a little extra time, but it's well worth it.

Took this byway to get back to highway 17 to drive to Phoenix. Absolutely beautiful. Nice areas to pull off and take pictures.

This was truly a highlight of the beauty of Sedona. It was a little scary to navigate a 15 passenger van but it was a beautiful sight to see.

It was all worth the drive. It was a great experience to see these amasing views. We all enjoyed it with the small kids sleeping and that we didn't have to bother them at all
