April 2015 - Red Rock Wilderness
Exploring the Red Rock Wilderness near Sedona.
Off on an adventure in the secret, red rock wilderness!
The eponymous red rocks.
The trekking party, minus yours truly.
Very red rocks.
Many blooms were about since it's spring time in Arizona!
There was some climbing to be done.
Looking back on where we came from.
I've never seen flowers like these on cactus!
Mana picks out her next target.
Garrison is having a good time!
An old, abandoned cabin.
A nice spot for lunch.
The red rock country seen from above.
Great weather for backpacking.
Katy and Alan.
Onward without our packs to get closer to the end of the trail.
Looking away from the red rock country for a moment reveals Mt. Humphreys to the north (the highest point in Arizona).
Enjoying a moment of levity. I missed what this was about.
I've hiked below before, but never up here.
The contrast between reds and greens is impressive.
Red rock country.
Some of the recognizable landmarks (e.g. Bell Rock) from above.
More of Sedona.
Early morning on the plateau.
The sun rises on a butte.
Incredible details in the rocks.
The group winds around a bend on the descent.
Climbing up to get a better look for cliff dwellings!
Found 'em: they were up very high.
GPS track of most of our hike. Omits the part where we went without packs because the tracker stayed with the packs.
