Day Trip

On Saturday, we loaded up the Mustang and took a day trip up to Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Bell Rock

We took a hike on the Soldier's Pass Trail in western Sedona. Early in the hike, we encountered the Devil's Kitchen Sinkhole.

"Now, let's all smile and pretend that we like each other."
The Seven Sacred Pools. It's impossible to get all seven pools in one picture without the aid of a helicopter.

No trip to the mountains would be complete without a brush with wildlife.

Lucas, King of the Mountain.

Coffee Pot Rock. There's another rock formation in town that looks like Snoopy lying on his doghouse, but I couldn't find it.

After lunch we decided to do more hiking. This time, took a scenic drive up highway 89A. Just north of town, we found a trail that took us down the canyon to Oak Creek.

Lucas found a bunch of miniature pine cones.

Our car is parked up there somewhere.

Don't fall, Kyle!

Lucas totally wants to scale that rock and claim it as his own little island.

The only downside to the trip--if there has to be one--was that we didn't get to see any fall color. But we'll be going to Overgaard in a few weeks, and there should be lots of yellow and orange leaves by then.
