Gallydoll
I had the harem out on Hangover last week and spotted another group heading up the north side of Windows Rock. My topo map showed a trail up the south side so we went out to investigate. I was reluctant believe that we would actually find a trail since the topo maps tend to be wildly inaccurate. To my surprise, there was the remnants of a trail to follow and follow it we did. There's one spot where the trail splits that we missed and doubled back to follow the spur up to the Windows. We followed the fearless Gallydoll up the slickrock and watched her summit from a safe distance. We enjoyed the slickrock views and got buzzed by some angry birds debating on whether they were swallows or falcons, then returned to the split and continued the loop back to Huckaby. I can't say I was 100% sure that we'd make it back to Huckaby, but we did and since we were so close to Oak Creek, we ventured down to see the water. We returned to the trailhead on Huckaby stopping to take lots of pictures of the flowering cactus along the way. Absolutely beautiful day to be in Sedona. Since we finished early, we treated ourselves to BAR-B-QUE at Lucky's in Dewey on the way back to Phoenix.
