Red rock landscapes in Sedona

Legend has it that Sedona is situated on one or more vortexes, or places where intense energy emanates from the earth. Lore or not, the area is undeniably special with its namesake red desert rock formations, wilderness areas, and incredible photo opportunities. Red Rock State Park is arguably the best place in Sedona to view red rock formations, but it’s certainly not the only place. The scenic overlook at Oak Creek Vista is a sure winner for a bird’s-eye view of the rocks, while Mt. Wilson (known as the big boy of the red rocks) offers experienced hikers a challenging ascent with up-close views of the famous formations.
