1st trip
I'm not sure when the last time I went to Sedona was but it's been far too long. Tuesday I sent Joe a note to see if he would be interested in doing something up there between 12 and 20 miles. He threw together this loop and it turned out to be a gem.

We made our way up the North Wilson Trail passing a few others along the way. Then down the other side and onto the Jim Thompson. From here we took the Cibola trail and jumped off for a quick assault on Morning Glory Spire (this was by far the highlight of the loop for me). After the spire we checked out Devils Kitchen, Seven Sacred Pools and then the Arches.

Finishing our loop we would take Brins Mesa to FR152C and then Vultee Arch Trail up and over Sterling Pass. Sterling Pass is pretty cool and there are some interesting rock formations along the way. Down the other side and it was a short trip down the road back to the car.

I don't think we could have had any better weather. Great hike and good times!
