It's been a while since we had a good family hike. So I decided a couple weeks ago it was time to take a hike up in Sedona. I found a trail we hadn't been on before and allegedly they get good fall colors so we took off next week for West Fork.
When we got there the color was pretty much gone. A lot of yellows but the reds were gone. I did see one big read leafed tree and a couple small ones but apparently this year they skipped fall and went right into winter. It was very cold when we got there and there was actually still snow on the ground. We were not expecting that and it was a nice surprise. We hike for a couple hours around the West Fork trail. We had to cross a couple times so we didn't get to do the full 6 miles to the end. It would have been about a dozen crossing and it's too much with the kids. When I say creek crossings I don't mean on a bridge. I'm talking carrying the kids while we walk over slippery wet rocks in the creek. Natalie didn't even want to do the first crossing but wasn't going to stop after just a half mile.
Getting ready to go to Sedona. Here is Zach sporting his wolf hat.
