The family took a vacation to Sedona and the Grand Canyon this past summer. Sedona is pretty cool for the rock formations and hiking/biking trails. I couldn't believe how cool some of the red rocks looked. The drive from Flagstaff to Sedona takes you past some great scenary in Oak Creek Canyon. If you have kids you have to keep your swim trunks handy on this drive and stop at Slide Rock State Park. Where Oak Creek comes down off the mountains it created a set of natural waterslides in the rocks that are awesome to play in. I would suggest have water shoes though because the place is slicker than a gut. The boys enjoyed hitting this place. But those that have said the place is full of spiritualists and hippies is right. Great town to visit but wouldn't want to live there. Also have your hiking boots handy too. There are lots of great hiking trails around Sedona and if you hit up the visitor's bureau they can get you maps and suggestions on hiking trails to try out. Alot of them can be hiked in a couple/few hours. Also if you take out of Sedona on 179 toward I-17 Montezuma Well and Montezuma Castle are both just south of the intersection between 179 and I-17. They are nice to burn an hour each at. Both have Singua cliff dweller ruins. Those were cool too. 179 actually turns into Beaver Creek Road at I-17 and I believe you can just follow it around to the Montezuma's Well. You then need to get on I-17 south to get down to Montezuma's Castle.
