If you’ve lived in Arizona for a long time, it can be easy to take the scenery for granted. Next time you need a little reminder of why our state is so uniquely beautiful, hop on State Route 89A and follow it from Sedona to Flagstaff. In under 15 miles, you’ll see rugged canyons, lush cliffsides, and the gentle babble of the iconic Oak Creek as its meandering current leads the way.
