Drove up on Monday for lunch at Indian Gardens just south of Slide Rock (Rated #1 out of 114 Sedona Restaurants) with my lovely Wife and my almost-as-lovely Mother-in-Law for a Gobbler Sandwich washed down with a Natural Brew Root Beer on the back patio. Perfect cool weather and tons of yellow. :D
Bopped over to the Allens Bend Trail at Grasshopper Point where I gave Karen's mom a lesson in trekking pole use to help her with her footing on the trail that does provide some challenges for a septuagenerian. The trail has no real AEG, but several sections involved 16-18" uneven steps and little drop-offs to the side. She took her time and did great.
The trail skirts the bottom of a 20-40' redrock wall for much of its length, and that added some interest to the otherwise limited views. Yellows were in abundance, but the reds we were looking for were nowhere to be found.
We made it to the Casner Canyon Trail junction, where we turned around and headed back to the car and our A-Frame at Oak Creek Terrace Resort. The cabin sits right on Oak Creek, comfortable and clean with decent views. The only caveat would be the size of the shower stall and spiral staircase, which were comically tiny.
We left the cabin chilly, jumped under the blankets and listened to Oak Creek below as we slept for about 11 hours. :zzz:
Tomorrow we will head to West Fork, hoping for some reds!
