So many beautiful sites to see that you have to be careful when you are driving to pay attention to the road. Took tons of pictures. The desert has its own beauty found no where else.

We drove from Camp Verde to Sedona and took the extra time to view the rock formations all along the way. They provide safe turnoffs for pictures and the visitor's center is a gem with all kinds of information from well informed staff. Be sure to take the very short ride to the Cathedral in the Mountains as it provides you with a unique view of the landscape as well as the Cathedral. This has to be one of the most breathtaking drives in Arizona. It is like being "in" the Grand Canyon. Morning sun is best going north.

The first time you drive into Sedona, you're awed by the gorgeous red rock scenery and repeated visits don't fail to impress.

This is one of many routes to take through the red rocks of Sedona. Lots of roundabouts which slows the traffic down to a good 'viewing' speed.
