Stopped into Sedona area with the dog on the way back to Phoenix from Page. The whole time at the West Fork was excellent (as always) and both dog and human enjoy splashing up and down the creek most of the way. It's beautiful, it's peaceful, it has water... what more could you ask for?

NOTE: Marked this hike as neutral from dogs because, although he did absolutely love it, he also picked up some VERY nasty little burrs or nettles right off the bat. The things were little tan balls (about the size of a pea) that were covered in semi-rigid spines about 1/8" long. A friend said my description sounded like clover nettles but I am not sure. Either way, he stepped in these things right next to the trail less than 2 mins into the hike. I spent a few mins pulling about a dozen of them off his hind feet but did not realize until that evening that the burrs had actually worked their way up into the fur between the pads of his paws and his feet were all full of them. I ended up spending nearly an hour with a pair of tweezers, scissors, and a lot of patience picking them out of the matted mess in his feet (poor guy.) I can't imagine these things would do a dog's throat or upper GI tract much good if they licked them off their coat and swallowed 'em either so be aware if you bring your pooch to Oak Creek.
