Our Winter break from Dec 27 to Dec 29, 2011. We spent time at Snowbowl, Flagstaff and did a bit of skiing.
But I thought the best time we had was driving over to Sedona and was surprised to see that even in Winter the scenery was absolutely beautiful.
We drove along Highway 89A, a little winding with snow on both sides as well as the imposing Red Rock Mountains and the Slide Rock Park along the way.
Also, being my wife's birthday, we celebrated with her at lunch at 4300ft at Uptown area at a restaurant "Open Range Grill & Tavern" overlooking the Red Rock Mountains.
It was fabulous. Our original plan was to ski and return to Scottsdale, but my son suggested spending some time in Sedona and... we definitely enjoyed it. Thanks Son!
And this wonderful video was produced by my wife! :-)
