We will be driving from Phoenix to Williams in December (brrrgh). We were told we HAD to at least see Sedona. I've been looking at the posts here and I agree. Sedona looks amazing. We will take hwy 179 per recommendations on this site. We will have a 3 yr old, 9 yr old and 11 yr old with us. Is there a simple, short hike with amazing views? Or should we just drive to places? It will be late December, would snow close any roads? I had looked at Pink Jeep tours, but being in an open air jeep during winter does not appeal to me (amazingly, they would take my 3 yr old). Any advice is greatly appreciated.
