Red Rock Thrills

This was the high point of our hike.

The HiLine trail took us up, down and all around Cathedral Rock, connecting us with the Baldwin Trail and then to the Templeton Trail, an 8-mile Loop that took us back to where we began.

Feeling small among the rocks near Sedona.

Backroads Across America: Views from Sedona

During two days in the Sedona, Arizona area, we have enjoyed stunning scenery and great weather. A bit warm (low 80s) for March, but we are not complaining.

After an early morning look at Bell Rock (top photo), we grabbed a coveted parking spot at Cathedral Rock for a steep scramble. Two photos show a ledge on the back side at the end of the trail. Reg on the ledge was not a happy site for Sue. It was bottoms down for most on the decline as hikers seemed to prefer sliding to slipping and falling.

As for Sedona, the town, we give it a thumbs down. It feels like an upscale resort. We expected a more rustic atmosphere.
