Tom & Jeannie joined up with Angela Lien, Peter Ng, Ben Velasquez, Elaine Cobos,
Chuck Giovaniello, Derek Johnson, Mike Wargel and his friend Andy along with
Mike’s dog, Sampson, Kenn Wright, his daughter Jessica and their dog Tess
and Joyce Parrish, her daughter Joy and her friend Tim with their dog, Bailey.
We headed for Sedona for what we hoped would be a rain-free hike.
The weather forecast for Sedona, however, was for scattered showers.
We arrived at the West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon trailhead at 9:30.
Our daughter Adrienne, who drove down from Flagstaff, was there waiting for us.
We began the hike after our obligatory group photo.
Jeannie, Adrienne and I had not returned to this area for about 10 years and
were pleasantly surprised to see the large parking area.
We remembered having to park along the roadside.
