Hike the trails or just take a scenic drive. Either way, you're going to need your camera for this one.

We're making our way through the winding roads of Oak Creek Canyon, between Flagstaff and Sedona.

This river gorge is considered the small cousin of the Grand Canyon; famous for its evergreen pine and red-faced rocks.

Stop off at one of the scenic overlooks, or hike Arizona's famous West Fork Trail and experience the peacefulness of nature.

The crystal clear Oak Creek flows all year, and in the fall, the canyon is bursting with color.

During the summer, the mouth of the canyon is home to desert dwellers' favorite getaway spot, slide rock, and 80-foot long natural water slide.

Camp, swim, or just take a drive because this is a place you can't pass up!
