Airport Mesa Reviews
Great location to watch the sunset. I saw some people had packed a cooler of snacks - wish I had brought mine! Worth standing in the cold until the end - you never know how the sky is going to change! more »
Not too difficult but today muddy and slippery in some spots. Great views all around of the beautiful red rocks that Sedona is known for take a detour to tabletop look out very nice. Would return... more »
A spectacular view, good hiking, and exposure to the coveted vortex energy. The energy was strong. I felt super charged upon arrival back to the parking lot. The feeling lasted the remainder of the day. We also encountered two wild lizards, who moved fast with the energy of the spot. The prickly pear cactuses were abundant and thrived in the heat of the desert sun. Bring water.
If you like sunsets like we do, then plan on getting here early to get a good place, and enjoy, what may be one of the most spectacular place to view a sunset. We have visited here a few times and it always seems better each time.
