Left the parking lot around 7:30 Saturday morning. Nice place to leave your vehicle. I was the only person in the parking lot when I took off. By the time I got to the end of the day hike trail I had met about five people. The high temps were expected to be mid 70s because a storm was rolling in with a 30 percent chance of rain and lows to be in the low 40s that night. Actual temps were just what had been forecasted. What amazed me was that I thought the water would be a lot colder. Turns out after the 3 or 4 mile hike to that point the water felt great, added bonus, once I got in the water I forgot all about being a little tiered from the first part of the hike. The pictures that I have posted are from my blackberry. I left my good camera at home because I was unsure of the water levels I would be crossing or walking through. Oh well I could have left that big chunk of cheese at the store and brought my camera. It weighted about the same and the water was no problem at all. All in all my BB captured some nice shots. As for the rain forecast, I got rained on twice, but both times is was very light and I was able to find an overhang to wait it out. Once you get back in about 6 miles you will start to find some places to make camp. The two I found had to have been made by Fred Flintstone and his buddy Barney. Both camps were under nice big rock overhangs. Both camps had flagstone furniture placed by fire rings. How amazing, the seats were actually very comfortable - yabadabdoo. I must hit the perfect weekend because only for a couple of goofballs that allowed me to help them finish a bottle of whisky with them I didn't see another soul until I was back on the day trail which was full of all of the bazzaros (easterners) that had come to Sedona to have that "special" experience, you know, the people that walk right by and don't say hi. Back to the campsite. I used a 40 degree bag and a very small one-man tent without the fly. Slept like a baby. I had brought my night vision but had no reason to pull it out. Once I got in the tent I fell asleep and woke up with the sun coming up. I hung around camp, had breakfast and then took my time putting all my junk back into my pack. I left for civilization around 10:30 am and got back to the trailhead around 3:00 pm.
