St. George area or Sedona?
Trying to plan a March trip. Option 1: St. George and most of southern Utah is about 5-6 hours from us. I have not explored that area much, just driven by it.
Option 2: Sedona is probably 9-10 hours from us, never been there. The other couple really wants to go to Sedona. We will be camping, biking (us) and hiking (them) for around 6 days.
Does anyone know if I'm getting pretty much the same scenery/experience in southern Utah as Sedona? They both seem to have the same March temps, red rock formations, plenty of land/trail options.
Can anyone point out the big differences and why you like one over the other? I'm not necessarily asking for specific trails, because I can look those up. Just the feel for the landscape. I read Sedona has fees for land use? Basically they look pretty much the to me same based on small internet photos, maybe Sedona has more trees?
I'd much rather drive the shorter distance, obviously. But having never been to either, I'm having trouble comparing.
