  • A must do - the scenery was the best! Hired a car at Flagstaff and took the trip to Sedona. Red Rock Country is God’s country- so much magic.  more »
  • What a view we had........... One of the highlights of the trip. We loved Sedona almost more than Grand Canyon. It's God's Country.... We will surely return to this incredible place!  more »
