Awesome hike in the evening, so parking wasn't an issue. My wife, Suz, Sadie (Suz's dog), Buster (our dog) and myself spent a blissful 1.5 hours checking out the lower part of the canyon, exploring for fall colors and investigating the reflections in still pools along the creek. Lots of dogs and people coming out when we arrived, but the numbers dropped off noticeably after entering the wilderness area. What a great little canyon - I can't believe I'd never done it before.

Heading to the trailhead in downtown Sedona (ugh!) both Suz and I were almost rammed by one of the "Tread Lightly Go Green Biodiesel" Hummers pulling out of a side street. I really did hope she'd hit our car - then we could get a new one! The drive up from Sedona reminded me why I don't go there except in the dead of winter...
