Red Rock Scenic Byway
Location: Sedona, Arizona
Length: 7.5 miles

Scenery: Immediately south of the new age-y tourist-trap town of Sedona is a short but sweet scenic road that travels through some mighty iconic natural scenery: a collection of jaw-dropping red sandstone formations known as the Red Rocks of Sedona.
