Approaching the trail head, I could see rain falling on one peak, and sun on the next. A huge waterfall was flowing in Fay Canyon, and I knew this was going to be good.
The first mile or so by the resort is pretty crappy, though I'm sure it's nice to stay there. Once that was behind me, the trail was similar to Fay, with mostly obstructed views punctuated by openings that revealed top notch red rock. When I reached the Box, I cruised up the right side about three levels on open smooth stone, enjoying the huge views in both directions. I cracked my last Amber Ale and reveled in my surroundings, glad to have jumped at the chance to get out here.
On the way back, I hit the Boynton Vista Trail. The pinnacle itself is climbable, though I skipped the last level. The wind was still gusting and some of the rock felt iffy.
Returning to the truck, I prepared for the drive home. I'd had 27 hours to experience Bear Mountain, Fay Canyon and Arch, Robber's Roost, and now Boynton Canyon. 16.5 miles with 4200 AEG gave me 307 images knocked down to 63. I'd done a few small hikes in Sedona before, but nothing like this. Besides the Canyon, I'd have to say my favorite place in the world, and I know I've only scratched the surface.
And it's less than 2 hours from my house.
I'm a lucky guy.
