Karen & Jim's Guide to the Grand Canyon, Havasu Falls, and Sedona


We drove north from Phoenix to Sedona taking Hwy. 179. Our first glimpse of the red buttes that seem to be everywhere came just after a right hand turn on the highway. It's a glorious sight.

Sedona Sedona
If you look closely, you should be able to make out the houses of Sedona at the base of this butte. Sedona has quite a reputation as being the "vortex" of new age activity, but don't let that scare you off. In Sedona you'll find a place of great natural beauty that allowed me to be more in touch with the spiritual realm.

We stayed at the Sugar Loaf lodge twice during our visit to Arizona. It has a great location in downtown Sedona and it's very reasonably priced.
