Chris invited me to do a series of trails up in Sedona with him and Wally, and I thought that would be a good way to spend a Saturday morning.

An early start before the sun was up out of the Bell Rock Trailhead. It was chilly for sure...20 something. All three of us were feeling the cold for sure!

I have done the Courthouse Butte Loop and the trails around Bell Rock, but not the others he had loaded up. The early start gave the first part of the hike a little escape from the masses, but we still saw some hikers out there early on.

The Llama trail was a nice one as was the Little Horse. The area around the Chapel looks interesting. Gotta hit that area next time.

We made good time, as Wally was in front moving out. Holding back for Chris and I, no doubt, but we still knocked out 11 miles in about 4 hours. No major elevation or scary climbs on this one. Just some nice trails in a very scenic area.

On our way back, the crowds really started in. The trails were packed with hikers and mountain bikers. Poor Bell Rock was completely infested with tourists, climbing all over the place.

The trailhead parking lot was totally full when we returned.Some guy offered Chris $10 for his parking spot when we got back....ha ha. He found another one before we were finished loading up.

It always a good day hiking with Chris and Wally and this day was no exception.
