I'm going to a conference in Flagstaff this week that ends Friday at noon. I'm planning on driving down to Sedona (50 minutes away) and spending the afternoon and sunset there. I plan on driving to Walnut Canyon on Saturday and being there in the morning through noonish before I head back to the airport for my late afternoon flight. I've been to both, but all my photos from Walnut Canyon were lost in a hard drive crash 3 years ago, and I was out of memory by the time we got to Sedona. And, they were both 3 years ago, so I really don't remember much (except all those stairs at Walnut Canyon and very steep drives through Sedona). Anyway, to make a short question long ... what's the best route to take through Sedona? Looking at the map, I'm going to take 89 down to Sedona, but then I don't know if I should stay on 89 or get onto 179 ... and should I stop at Slide Rock State Park along the way, or go through Sedona to get to Red Rock State Park and back-track to Sedona for sunset (since the state parks are only open 'til 5 PM now)? Advice appreciated!
