A family friend from my childhood owns a hotel in Flagstaff. She liked my hiking photos and asked to use them to decorate her hotel. I agreed on condition that we could come stay at the hotel on occasion. She was more than happy to oblige, and we decided to cash in on the deal over 4th of July weekend. Turned out to be a perfect jumping off point for multi-sport adventuring, which in our case, included: hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, and mountain biking.

Sandys Canyon was our second adventure on the trip--our first being an evening kayak on Lake Mary on Friday night after we checked into the hotel (see separate triplog).

Sandys Canyon was a 10-15 minute drive from our hotel, and so we slept in on the 4th and made our way to the TH around 8 a.m. I had expected the trail to be a little crowded, but it turns out we were the first car at the TH parking area. Saw a lot more people on our way back.

The canyon is beautiful and a nice, easy stroll. I expected a lot more wide open valley, based on my brief review of the triplog photos, but was pleasantly surprised at the more closed-in, tree-lined, grassy narrow area of the canyon beyond Fisher Point.

We explored the "caves," which were fun diversions. I wanted to hike up to Fisher Point, but my crew had had enough adventure for the morning, so I put it on the to-do list for the following day as part of a planned mountain biking adventure.

A beautiful area and a beautiful day in Flag.

We would be back to the TH in the late afternoon for some rock climbing at the Pit (separate triplog).
