Fourteen miles south of Flagstaff, on the scenic Highway 89A, we turned into the Oak Creek Canyon Overlook. First we walked to the overlook and admired the scenery. This is the smart thing to do, because when you continue on Highway 89A, it drops down into the canyon by way of some dramatic switchbacks. No stopping there to take pictures. These canyon walls are in the colors of beige and greys, but as you approach Sedona the rocks are very red. On the way back to the parking lot stop at the tables set up along the walkway. This is the site of the Authentic Native American, arts, crafts, and jewelry. Under the shade of umbrellas, you can visit directly with the artists. The items I looked at were all signed by the artist.
