Red Rock Scenic Byway (Sedona, Arizona)

Red Rock Scenic Byway (Sedona, Arizona)

We turned to page 278 of "Guide to Scenic Highways & Byways" by National Geographic which talked about how “Sand laid down about 300 million years ago became sandstone, tinted red by the presence of iron, then shaped by water and wind…” to what you see today. It’s only a short but sweet 7.5 mile scenic drive (Exit 298 to Hwy 179) of Red Rock country. We make an afternoon of it.

We asked a Coconino County Sheriff (and Firefighters) what had happened. They said they’re out looking for hikers or rock climbers that got themselves into trouble by not staying on the marked trail. Helicopters, too, were circling.

  1. I think that the SEDONA crystals and that crazy UFO mountain radiation from CLOSE ENCOUNTERS is making you guys younger looking.

    Seriously, what have you guys been doing to reverse the aging process?
