Mesmerizing and Memorable
Oct 2021
We have driven on many scenic roads around the world, but this was our first time on a road like this one. The colors, the red sandstone rock shapes and formations, and the views were fabulous and truly a sight to behold – especially when the sun hits the rocks at a perfect angle. There are several pull-off areas, and we actually entered them for a few minutes to take photos.

We were left flabbergasted and enthralled at the startling beauty of the scenery. I was so glad that I was not driving, and got to enjoy that mesmerizing beauty to the fullest -- without being distracted.

Our hotel was right on this road, so we had the opportunity to drive on it several times.

It is an absolutely gorgeous drive that one must do at least once in their lifetimes. Put it on your bucket list. We are thrilled to have checked it off ours.

Must see. Make this drive from South of Sedona to Flagstaff. Most of the amazing views are just south of Sedona. Traffic was very slow the day we went but just gives you more time to take in the views. Stop at all the marked viewing points.

Just stunning

As a first time Sedona visitor, driving from the South and seeing those red rocks for the first time are a sight to behold. And then driving through Sedona and up north towards Flagstaff, even more beauty through the Coconino Forest. Worth a drive just to drive.

We stayed at Residence Inn Marriott and so whenever we drove out onto SR 179 north to get to the city center, we got a front view of the Red Rock mountains. Awesome!
