Sedona Sunset Day Hike
when Trip Report : November 4, 2017
where west Sedona
the hike     For the 2nd Sedona Sunset experience we will explore the Carroll Canyon trail system, then move on to the Airport Loop. Included will be a visit to two of the more renowned area landmarks, the Sedona Airport Vortex and the Sedona Airport Overlook, which becomes at dusk an international melting pot of scenic admirers. This hike is being announced well in advance to accommodate participants who may want to incorporate further overnight or weekend plans in the area.
    The last 1.5 miles of the hike will be in fading light, so bring a form of illumination. Due to the late conclusion no formal post-hike meal is planned, so pack plenty of food and water. Do not sign up for this hike if you expect to accommodate any other evening plans outside of the immediate Sedona area.
