The perfect outing for a hot summer day. Head north of Sedona into the Oak Creek Canyon for a hike along the river. Or maybe go slip sliding at Slide Rock State Park.
We headed up early but not quite early enough to get a parking spot at the West Fork Trail. I was really looking forward to taking this amazing hike. Oh well… So instead we stopped at a picnic spot just down the road and did a little exploring along the rocky banks of the river. It was still beautiful and rejuvenating. That was just what I needed!
You can get a Red Rock Pass at most of the parking areas anywhere in the Sedona area or stop at the gas station. Keep the pass in the window so it is visible. The pass is good for all of the parking areas and includes in and out service.
It takes about 2 hours from Phoenix area to get to Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon is just a little bit further. You can do this as a day trip. We had a late lunch in Sedona and then headed home.
That day I took all “live” photos…
