Decided to get out of the heat and took a day hike up to Fisher Point (just south of Flagstaff) Via Sandy's Canyon Trail. 70 degrees to start the day with a high of 82. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL HIKE! From the trail head you follow the path down into the canyon. At first it's a little rocky, down the first 1/2 mile or so. But once into the canyon it flattens out and opens as you head North toward Fisher Point and really lets you know you're out in nature.

In the hottest part of summer here in the valley the cooler temps and green trees of Flagstaff were a welcomed sight. Tall and towering compared to the desert we're surrounded by. As you hike what is a small part of the Arizona Trail, the path evens out and widens. Each trail that intersects is well identified and easy to follow. (Kudos to the Coconino Parks and Rec. Department)

The hike to Fisher Point is just over 2 miles. Easily done within an hour. But please take the time and enjoy your surrounding. The small cave at Fisher Point is cool to explore. I won't go into to much detail, but take a flashlight and go inside, you'll love it.

Just before the cave the trail splits right (east) into Walnut Canyon or left (north *Arizona Trail) to Flagstaff. We went East further into the canyon were the trail shrinks a bit into a narrow path with much overgrowth around the creek, in which I never did see any water. I loved the winding trial through this area but we only ventured another 1 1/2 before we turned around and backtracked out.

Overall I loved this hike, although a squirrel, witch eluded my hiking partner by running right behind him, was the only wildlife I saw.
