By the way there is now less than a week left of bright squares, where has the time gone? If you haven’t yet taken part, why not get organised this weekend. I have now approved all of yesterday’s amazing square contributions, so do visit yesterday’s post and scroll through the comments for inspiration. Remember all I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.Becky B
Sedona Old Soldier Pass Trail #2
Yesterday we barely started on the trail. Sadly, I thought that we would get to the first official view point today. But sadly, for you I took more pictures than I thought. Those bright views so far are unofficial. I had my mouth open in amazement of such beauty most of the time. (No, not to help me breathe!)
We headed in the general direction of the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness Area, which I am assured is steeper than what we experienced. As you can see there was clearly another choice of path with no marker and now no other hikers.
We veered left, and kept going in that general direction until we reached our goal. Apparently bicycles are allowed in this first 1.2 mile section of the pathway.
We also went up whenever we could. I’m not sure how difficult it would be on bikes. The total rise in altitude is only 450 feet and you barely feel it because it is gradual in most places. There were places where it was not so flat.
Vince is wondering what takes me so long and whether or not my balance is holding up. He accidently wore his street shoes, and got them filthy, not to mention they were a little slippery in places. I wore my stabilization/hiking/tennis shoes/trainers and I did fine, but there were a few places where he helped me up or down.
We are very cute now that we are older than red dirt, in case you didn’t know that.
Tomorrow in my next BrightSquare I promise I will get you to Devil’s Sink Hole and tell you how it came to be. So for today, Signing off from Sedona, AZ, about one hour’s drive from Prescott
Have a happy Hump day from these beautiful humps. How’s your week going?
