BTW I loved the way you finished it off, Tachlis.

Thanks, but which part were you referring to?

This is one trip you will not regret although it gets very hot in the summer.

I originally read your TR on my phone, so I didn't really appreciate the pictures. Looking at them now on the computer they're even more awesome! Especially this picture of the GC. I love how you captured the scale of it all - look how tiny the people on the left are!

Great write up so far!

I was in Sedona GC and Scottsdale Phoenix this past winter too, but my trip was a little different...

I am very hesitant to post my pictures of the Grand Canyon. (I think Iíll find the best online picture taken from where I stood. The pictures I took look a bit washed out from the bright sun

Very good(and accurate!) write up! You never made it to the creek though?

You mean Red Rock creek? The little national park?
Is there water in Sedona anywhere else but there cause I was really searching to see the water-red rocks combination and was told to go there but didn't have too much time till sunset. Basically all I managed to see of the above mentioned combination is the image below but I saw more images online, are they all in that park or there's more elsewhere?

Nope. Not sure what creek you are referring to.

Only in the little park? Oak creek runs all the way from Flagstaff and around the lower lying areas of town! Every few years when there is excess rainfall they have to evacuate people in houses near the creek due to flooding... Basically there are about a million spots to go to, some more well know than others. They also serve different purposes... Red Rock Crossing, the picture you have above is a nice more tourist-y area of the creek, better during the "off season" but nice. Even there though you hike quite a bit and find interesting spots less highly populated. The hiking trails by the creek(through Oak Creek Canyon enroute to Flagstaff) are good too for the summer especially. Favorite trail of those being westfork. (see https://www.google.com/search?q=west+fork+sedona )

I think the Verde River actually might connect to Sedona as well...

I stopped at Oak Creek Canyon on my way down from Flagstaff to Sedona but, although the scenery is nice, I saw no red rocks there..

Regarding the water spots, everyone in town just told me to go to Red Rock Creek. I'd think if there were a million spots to go to I'd pass them, I really was all over town...

Below is a pic of Oak Creek Canyon, I was told by some locals just to drive through it if en route to Sedona and not to delve much in it as it is nothing compared to Sedona.. is there more to it?
