On October 16 and 17, eleven hikers from the Saddlebrooke Hiking Club hiked Boynton Canyon, Devil’s Bridge and the West Fork of Oak Creek. Boynton Canyon is the ancestral home of the Yavapai and Sinagua peoples and is also considered a vortex.
Devil’s Bridge is a land bridge that is 100 feet above the valley floor in west Sedona and is not for those afraid of heights.
Lastly, we hiked the West Fork of Oak Creek, which in my mind is the prettiest fall hike in Arizona because of its Gambel oak and walnut trees in full fall color, red rocks and the creek running through it.
Hikers who went on the trip were Dave Sorenson, Joe and Marlene D’Ambrosio, Lonnie Bright, JP and Cindy Blount, Mark Schwartz, Kathryrn Madore, Kay Clauson, Margaret Valair and Roberta Litchfield.
Sedona in the fall is always a delight!
