This is our view (from cottonwood) of the slide fire in Oak Creek canyon. This is truly heartbreaking!
The world seems to have gone a little mad. Guardian Air helicopter Angel 2 just launched to aid in rescue of two patients ejected from a vehicle on Highway180 near the snowplay area, a house fire in Doney Park, an attempted suicide and the major forest fire raging in Oak Creek Canyon. All within the last hour.
Watching Oak Creek Canyon burn is breaking my heart. 😪💔
Oak Creek Canyon continues to burn with 30 miles per hour winds ~ Please continue to pray for our beautiful Sedona & Oak Creek Canyon
There are NO EVACUATIONS, other than those already completed in Oak Creek Canyon, in effect for area residents. Sign up with Coconino County's emergency notification service, Code Red, to be alerted of any additional notifications at

WANTED!! Oak Creek firestarter! Praying that they catch the Moron who is destroying my beloved Oak Creek Canyon! ;(
Just listened to Arizona Daily Sun reporter Eric Betz on the phone with Bill Morse getting an update. Eric will post in the next few minutes that the fire has reached West Fork and burned into West Fork. The incident command center is being moved from down in Oak Creek Canyon up to Fort Tuthill. Look to follow Eric's updates at He is in constant contact with law enforcement, emergency planners, fire departments and the national forest. I will keep posting info on my personal page also.
God bless all of the firefighters everywhere, and those on the newest Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon. I am very proud of my son, Tyler , who is with Summit Fire Department and was called out yesterday to be on this fire . Please keep all of them safe, and in our thoughts and prayers. I love you so much , Tyler, and I couldn't be more proud of you 😊
I'm hoping and praying that the West Fork of oak Creek Canyon is saved from this horrible fire. I have some of my best memories from hiking up and down that side canyon. Stay safe firefighters and may everyone come home 🙏
Well, in this dry year we knew it could happen. Oak Creek Canyon north of Sedona and Slide Rock is on fire. 500 acres of beautiful canyon country burned. The smoke is thick here in Flagstaff.can't see the San Francisco Peaks. 200 firefighters on scene with an additional 15 hot shot crews, 40 engines, and heavy duty air support on the way. High winds expected again today. Pray for the safety of our brave firefighters
Due to possible in-climate weather tubing may be delayed this weekend. We will be watching the weather and making sure you get only the sunniest of days. Call us for any information, please stay safe if you are in the Sedona, Arizona area as the wildfire in Oak Creek Canyon is causing evacuations!
The Slide fire did not destroy any structures overnight in Oak Creek Canyon, but a second fire, possibly a spot fire, started along the rim of the canyon. U.S. Forest
A wind-whipped 450-acre wildfire near Slide Rock State Park in northern Arizona's Oak Creek Canyon forced the evacuations of businesses and homes in a two-mile stretch north of the area Tuesday evening, authorities said. Meanwhile, an estimated 100-acre brush fire sparked by a vehicle was...
I Wanna send good vibes and love to all those fighting the blaze in our back yard that we call oak Creek canyon may god keep you all safe!! God bless!!
I have been asked to share my favorite Bible verse. This one has special meaning to me as I read it the morning my precious Mother went to be with the Lord. My parents and my family own a beautiful cabin/home in Oak Creek canyon which is so very close to the fire today. There are so many precious memories made there and they all center around my parents. This verse came to mind last night when I was praying for Oak Creek. Psalm 91: 1-2 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." 9-11 If you make the Most High your dwelling-even the Lord, who is my refuge-then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. 14-16 Because he loves me, "says the Lord, 'I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with ...
My heart hurts for Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona right now. It was there, at the creek, somewhere between Slide Rock and West Fork, that I first knew that I knew I was to move to Sedona 4 years ago. It was in this beautiful canyon that I camped for a week to celebrate my 50th birthday 2 years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with the canyon and all of her inhabitants...the people, the animals, the birds, the fish, the water, the trees, the rocks and the ground beneath them all as well. ~D~
A wildfire called the Slide Fire has burned over 400 acres north of Highway 89 in Oak Creek Canyon near the Slide Rock State Park.
Ok, besides the horrible fire raging below us in Oak Creek Canyon, there is another awful development--my children's school invited Sparky to their field day tomorrow!! To add insult to injury, there is a contest for which class wears the most maroon & gold. I am outraged! We don't own maroon or gold in this house, & I told my kids to tell their friends (those from decent homes, of course) that I will give candy to anyone who wears UA colors. This whole thing is insulting! ( But, I hope you all know I am really very concerned about the fire. Oak Creek is a gorgeous spot on this planet. We can actually smell the smoke inside our house this morning!)
Prayers needed to contain the Oak Creek Canyon fire, protect people, pets and wildlife. The Amitabha Stupa is ideal for prayers and intentions as those prayers are focused and magnified.
There is a somber feeling in Flagstaff today. Smoke fills the sky, no site of the peaks, the smell of burning forest in our schools, homes and city. Feeling heavy hearts for our sister community Oak Creek Canyon.
My Dad is out fighting his first fire this year up near Oak Creek Canyon... Please keep him and all the other firefighters in your prayers.
On behalf of all of us at the Haunted Group we send many positive thoughts to those affected by the fire in Oak Creek Canyon. We are so grateful for the individuals who risk their lives to fight these terrible fires. Be safe out there.
FYI everyone.~ at this point we are only affected by the smoke. Updates as we get them. "Fire activity is slowing toward the north and now concentrating on moving up the steep canyon walls," according to an update fire managers released at 7:15 a.m. "Resources are stationed above and below the fire. Smoke is heavy through Oak Creek Canyon and creating very hazy conditions in Flagstaff. Smoke will likely continue to drift north and be noticeable along I-17 as motorists approach northern Arizona."
SEDONA FIRE UPDATE. The Sedona Fire in Oak Creek Canyon grew overnight. Hundreds of people evacuated. Hiway 89A from Sedona to Flagstaff is closed. This is a very dangerous fire and winds are expected to be in 30-40 MPH today. Just released! This fire is over 500 acres and growing in very steep, rugged terrain.
Off to see my Mom for a few days and celebrate an incredible young mans's college graduation!! PLEASE keep the firefighters in AZ in your prayers today as they fight in Oak Creek canyon , a beautiful but dangerous place to fight. This one is *** this Momma, first big one of the season. Reinforcements coming in today, hoping wind dies down.

Praying for our Hotshot firefighters battling a now 500 acre wildfire raging near Sedona, in Oak Creek Canyon, suspected to be human set.At 6 pm it was 20 acres, with evacuations of homes, Slide Rock tourists and businesses. It has grown to 500 acres and zero contained. There are also three other wildfires burning in Arizona now. In the Badger fire at Sunset Point, an RV caught fire, igniting both sides of I 17 with traffic backed up on both sides of the freeway for four hours between Phoenix and Cordes Lakes.
Lots of prayers for Sedona, AZ tonight. My absolute FAVORITE place in all of Arizona (Oak Creek Canyon) is on fire - 0% contained, evacuations ordered. After San Diego last week and now this, it's just so SO sad!!!
We close the night with thoughts of our neighbors in Oak Creek Canyon. May the winds calm for the crews fighting the fire.

Fire across from us in Oak Creek Canyon at Slide Rock, just north of Sedona. PLEASE people - obey Smokey the Bear. No fires! If you can't do that then stay home and out of the forests!
This is a link for the latest Slide Rock Fire (Slide Fire) information. My Battalion Chief had it posted to Sedona Fire's website. Please read and share.! specifically Oak Creek Canyon is very near to many of our hearts and it looks like the fire has grown to 450 acres in 5 hours. The rapid fire growth and spread is worst case scenerio for wildfires. Oak Creek Canyon is a "BOX CANYON" meaning it has walls on 3 sides with one exit and entrance. Please keep all of my friends and coworkers in your thoughts as they attempt to gain some footing on this Monster. So many members of SFD, The Forest Service and Sheriff's Office are sacrificing their night for extended hours to battle this blaze. I am honored to be a small part of such a great organization with incredible leadership and training. Tonight is going to be a long night for everyone in BE SAFE GUYS!!
Ok our State that is such a tinderbox is having Fires. Oak Creek Canyon by Slide Rock near Sedona is my concern tonight. Craig will find out how close it is when he goes to work tonight!! Also at Black Canyon City. The freeway in both directions were closed this afternoon. Please pray for Arizona because we are sooo dry!!
It's breaking our hearts to see the smoke rising out of Oak Creek Canyon. Our thoughts are with those displaced tonight by the fire and with the brave firefighters working so hard to save the beautiful canyon.
Coconino National Forest officials say that 100 structures are threatened in the north end of Oak Creek Canyon. A U.S. Forest Service fire overlook tower, the East Pocket Lookout, is imminently threatened in the area.

Garden Fitness Opportunity! Join us at the Sedona Winds Garden tomorrow morning at 9:30 to fill the planters with the garden soil. That involves shoveling and moving the soil. We got a mixture of 3-3-3 from Verde Earthworks - three yards red earth, three black earth from Oak Creek Canyon and three "Verde Gold" sifted compost. Message us if you need more information.
Looking for a great hiking Sedona?? This is one of my very favorites, the AB Young Trail in Oak Creek Canyon! A good workout and excellent views from the top of Mount Humphrey in Flagstaff and the Oak Creek drainage far below.
A beautiful day in Sedona, two trips with the truck on the Oak Creek Canyon road (to get a fresh battery for the bike), followed by two trips with the bike through the canyon. Definitely much better on the bike. The weather is great. by the way the Grand Canyon service writer thought the problem might be that I had the security active and every time we hit a bump the system activates and that can drain the battery. Need to put the bike in transport mode.
An Amazing Place to be By Yourself - This place is so QUIET - West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona
Made it to Sedona. Taking the trailer down the Oak Creek Canyon road was interesting. Only bad thing is the battery in the bike is dead, this is the third one in less than a year. Anybody have an idea what could cause it to die completely?
I want a cabin in Oak Creek Canyon, or at least go for a weekend.

Went to church today then spent the afternoon up in Flagstaff showing Michelle around and having lunch. Drove up to Flagstaff through the Oak Creek Canyon and national forest it's beautiful this time of year and only gonna get better as the rain comes and makes the spring flowers bloom. My fruit trees are already starting to bloom
Headed up on a spring water run to jolly ole Sedona/Oak Creek Canyon!
Spent my Saturday hiking around Sedona. A morning hike through West Fork Oak Creek Canyon followed by a near scramble up Bear Mountain for sweeping views of the surrounding mountain mesas. Then a quick dusk run up to Devil's Bridge. I had just enough light left to get in a photo, score. I only wish I had more time to explore. This place is definitely in my top three favorites. Pics to follow tomorrow, hopefully.
A water cascade in Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona this afternoon. I hope everyone has an excellent weekend!
Was hanging on for dear life to her seatbelt going up Oak Creek canyon on way to Flagstaff,should of taken a pic!
Thought I'd end the evening with a couple of pics of an area I ALWAYS stop at when I'm close. GREAT scenery but tooo expensive to buy things. Start my journey up Oak Creek Canyon from here after sight seeing!!!
This was my Answer: We would have a lovely breakfast and go somewhere fabulous, Slide Rock in Oak Creek Canyon and check out Montezuma's Castle, then the Well and Toozigoot, or Moonlight Beach in Encinitas... followed by some Boardwalk stroll and a trip to Del Mar to see the Horse Races and find an interesting place for Dinner... Even if we chose to never leave the house we would surely spend the day Laughing, reminiscing and catching up on the many years we have been apart... It would be fabulous!

We took a nice hike up into Oak Creek Canyon this morning. On the hike I came across three different hearts. The first was a stone heart then we went and meditated high atop this rock with an amazing View. Right after I found a heart chocolate gleaming in the sun completely unmelted as if it was just placed there, I'm sure it was. On out way out another heart rock. Big heart opening happening here in Sedona. Love & gratitude to heart opening❤️
Much to be thankful for... including a wonderful trip to the Grand Canyon, home via Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona.
Day 5 - California Trip Left Santa Fe at 7:30 am and headed to Albuquerque. Arrived at 8:30 am and we saw hundreds of balloons in the air. See photo From there we drove across scrub desert into Arizona where it was desert and relatively flatter. Crossed the continental divide. We seemed to go up hill and down a lot. As we neared Flagstaff, the wind was horrific and it was difficult driving. Although you won't know it with some of the rigs passing you by. As we neared Flagstaff the terrain turned very hilly and we were climbing. The vegetation turned to Ponderosa Pine. We left IS 40 at Flagstaff and took 89A to Sedona. The drive was through Oak Creek Canyon and over 9 miles we dropped 2000 feet. You could only drive about 25 mph at most, some of the winding turns were only 15 mph and a white knuckled drive. The view was spectacular. As we neared Sedona you could see the red rocks appearing. Sedona is a jewel and in pic's 1 & 3 you can see some of the red rock mtns. Tomorrow heading up to the Grand Cany ...
Okay, from teaching yesterday morning to raising a pint to my late friend Greg (didn't think the owner would appreciate me pouring a little for a fallen homie), to oysters with my buddy Rich, walking to Einstein Bros Bagels with Mom for Sunday breakfast, to Flagstaff (Macy's, Crystal Magic, and Lumberyard Brewery) to Oak Creek Canyon (Indian Gardens...YUM and BEAUTIFUL as always) to salsa dancing with Luis Valle all within 48 hours. Temps are breaking, fall is here in the valley. Hard to have to say good-bye soon.

Home safe and sound from a great day with the boys. Was so nice to crawl into that hot shower and wash all the dirt and grime away from the afternoon on quads in the desert. Hopefully David David Sternlicht and Jeremy Sternlicht get a good night sleep at Pine Flat Campground in upper Oak Creek Canyon in the "Mountain Cabin" (aka the 10x16 tent that could host a frat party).
Time to get the fudge out of the heat for a couple days ..

Hathaway Fire update - * 2,850 acres * 30% contained * Growth Potential is still "High" . The Hathaway Fire started just before noon on Sunday, June 9 east of Hathaway Canyon on the northern portion of the Morongo Indian Reservation. It is currently burning in steep, rugged terrain in the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Many of the fuels burning have been impacted by drought and bark beetle kill. Extreme fire behavior has been observed, including rollout and uphill runs. There is continued potential for large fire growth into the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Emphasis today is on continuing direct fire line construction, continue air operations until dusk, and night air attack flying. The Hathaway Incident Command Post has been established at Noble Creek Park in Beaumont, CA. Motorists should be aware of increased fire-related traffic along I-10 and Oak Valley Parkway. The San Gorgornio Wilderness area remains open, except for Vivian Creek Trail. However, other trails and local areas such as Pioneertown, Morongo and ...
We took a vacation way back early 00's. we stop at sliding water, oak creek canyon, there were lots of whites playing, sliding down. we got off, into the water we went, about 15 mins later, everybody was gone. we was wondering what happen? n e wayz we n-joy our time. we left, went to phx, California, back to Grand Canyon. we were still puzzled about the oak creek. we found out later it was during this time there was this "Navajo Disease". Hantivirus scare. LMAO..everywhere we went we scare the crap out of people.LOL..
Our hiking adventures yesterday were amazing starting with sliding down the natural slides into the freezing cold waters of Oak Creek at Slide Rock park. Then, we hiked 3 to 4 miles into Oak Creek Canyon! It was so beautiful!
Cousin Todd visiting us in Arizona. We're getting ready to hike in Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona today. Looking forward to our adventure !
Best fall riding in AZ is Oak Creek Canyon!
When most of us think about where we want to ride our mountain bikes, we consider how much climbing we feel like doing, how hot the day may be, how many people may also be on the trail, and if you are anything like me and extremely prone to poison oak, you are also thinking about which trails to avoid.  Mike Gourley is no exception when it comes to choosing trails nor to the wrath of poison oak, but he has a few secret weapons up his sleeve: shovels, gloves and pick-axes.  Working in conjunction with the National Forest Service and The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, Mike has been maintaining trails in Ojai for the past 15 years. Inspired by the many miles of trails and beautiful terrain of Ojai, I had the chance to sit down with Mike, to talk about his fascination with trail work. “We’ve gotta take care of our local trails, and they’re not gonna get done just thinking about them.”  As a boy scout, Mike learned that the more you take care of the outdoors, the longer they will be around to play in ...

Arizona Snowbowl Tuesday, June 11, 2013 SNOWBOWL OFFERS UNIQUE SUNSET CHAIRLIFT RIDE AND BARBECUE FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - While much of Arizona is living up to its hot, dry reputation with triple digit heat, Arizona Snowbowl is offering cool temperatures and cool views with the return of the Sunset Chairlift Ride! This Friday, June 14, and every second Friday of the month through October, the Sunset Chairlift will run from 3 to 6 p.m. A free barbecue dinner comes with the purchase of a Chairlift Ride ticket and live music! National Weather Service meteorologists say this Friday, Sunset lift riders can expect clear, sunny skies, as monsoon thunderstorm clouds won't start building until early July. "The view should be terrific. It looks like we'll have a westerly flow between now and Friday, which should push smoke and haze from the New Mexico fire away from us," said meteorologist George Howard. "The higher you go, the longer you'll see the sun sinking into the West. Right now the warmest temperature at 11,000 ...
Highlight of Arizona trip so far, besides hanging with Deb and Dan in the mountains, was a visit to Jerome, an ex-mining town built on the side of a mountain. Nothing like it in Texas. Or the rest of the country.

The morning drive is through Sedona and up the Oak Creek canyon to the gates of Forest Highlands just south of Flagstaff, Arizona. What's next is one of my favorite tracks of all time. The Forest Highlands Canyon course has been rated No. 1 in Arizona year after year. It's a pure mountain and canyon gem, with towing ponderosa pines and elk rubbing up against flag sticks.
Just a little sample of oak creek canyon West Fork hike today . It was incredibly beautiful .
More photos! Our cameras are always ready, so we ask: what kinds of photos would you like to see more of on our page? Campus shots, Flagstaff outdoors, local stomping grounds, etc? Be specific and we will answer the call!
That is one of those photographs that I wish I was the one that captured it! Great image! :-D
Left Phoenix yesterday noon with a working ac in the suburban and fridge in the trailer. Headed through Oak Creek Canyon (pic of Bell Rock) and Sedona. Camped at Jacob Lake (pic deer across from campsite) north of the Grand Canyon. Won't visit the GC since we were there 12 yrs ago. Headed through Utah towards Nevada for the night. Absolutely spectacular scenery!

BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Boy Scout group that took a hike in a Colorado River canyon over the weekend had tried to beat the heat by starting early, but they were no match for temperatures that soared to 115 degrees.

Our elders have always believed in supernatural entities & passed their values onto new generations.
Finding it hard to motivate myself to take a step ladder out to the mural site. I had noodle legs for hours after the fact yesterday. Too hot to be working out there. I guess it is as touched up as it is going to be.
George and I just got home from a all day date together :) We drove to Flagstaff and went to the Farmers Market, met Angie Clark there, went to her temporary home. Left there and drove down Oak Creek Canyon, through Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome, Prescott, Wickenburg and finally home! Had a FABULOUS DAY! Thank you Honey! Our GPS unit only got us lost course on some random gravel road for a hour and a half that SUCKED! Thanks LoLa (thats our GPS's name) :)
To all my ahs yl friends we are going to oak creek canyon this friday, we'll meet at 10am at the starbucks at 44th and indian school and we'll be back by 6, more details to come
Well, the oak creek trip, turned into the Sycamore camping trip instead. 9 people from all corners of the earth, crammed into a car and a jeep, and proceeded to wander off onto forest roads that lead towards sycamore, in theory. After (well before too, honestly), pronouncing the collective party lost without direction, I finally spoke firmly enough to ask if I could navigate, due to the fact that A-I was the only Arizonan, and 2-I was the only one who had been there...a lot. With about three fingers of space between the sun and the horizon left of daylight, we tribed down into the canyon, thoroughly enjoying the first swimming hole, then hiking back up, to further the evening; lacking a campfire, but ample in guitars; even a drum showed up to the shindig. This morning was spent hiking further up stream to the main swimming hole/ tall cliffs. On the way in, alone, I spent some time in the jaguar lounge; sprawled amongst smooth sycamore branches, practically above the Verde..'twas nice. The 89A backseat ...
I only post this stuff for some of my friends that will never have the opportunity to see this part of our great country and those that may like to, I hope. I am biased though, I'm crazy about the great Southwest, so ROAD TRIP! Santa Fe and Taos are nice to see but are basically tourist traps. Should have just went whitewater rafting or fishing on the Rio Grande between the two cities, but forces higher than me didn't allow that. Bummer! Winslow was just something I have wanted to do because of the song. Didn't know I was one of many!
Made breakfast for my mother and I. Time to doll up and cruise Flagstaff for yard sales! I want to take a drive down to oak creek canyon. reminds me of my childhood days when my grandparents and uncle were here along with all the rest of my tabaha family :'(
Musings from Mikepedia. One of the great blessings we have living in The West is the proximity of so many wonderful National Parks. The newest is Pinnacles, located not far from Salinas in NorCal. But though we have the majority of Parks in the country, other areas are needing this extra special protection that National Park designation affords. Such locations as Mount Shasta, Mount Hood, Big Sur, Mono Lake, Oak Creek Canyon, and The Columbia Gorge, among many others, are spectacular areas that need this designation. For a variety of reasons ( none of them good, in my estimation) these areas, while mostly Federally owned, have been passed over for National Park Status. Do you have any additions ? In my lifetime I hope to see a Shasta National Park, and a Mount Hood National Park ( and that already comes with a spectacular lodge, Timberline). Lets get the letter writing started.
I'm sitting here torturing myself, looking at old photos and posts from friends n family, n friends that are family one way or another, desperately missing you all n wanting to come home, NC. I miss n love you all! Xoxo's

Faeries DO exist. Nobody questions when they use their cell phone to make a call that it is actually happening, even though they can't see the energy leaving the phone going to the satellite, beaming back down to the person you are calling. Faeries exist just as much as cell signals do. and Elves, and Leprechauns...

This is a picture of one of (if not) my favorite short routes in Red Rock Canyon, Oak Creek Overlook. I have done it twice with the 52 Peak Club and once solo. The angle of this photo makes this look impossible, yet it's not as hard as this picture makes it look. So fun, this short route has everything.
HELP ME. I'm home for the next three days with a 6-year old and a Chihuahua and it's 107 outside. I don't have a job (Thank you MLM). And...I don't want to stay at home. Good ideas for Arizona getaways with a kid and a dog???
Booking activities for Maui. Anyone have suggestions for things we must do and can't miss? Has anyone done the sunrise/bike ride down from Haleakala?

LOVE # 12 driving in Phoenix HOW TO DRIVE IN PHOENIX: 1. You must first learn to pronounce the city name, it is: FEE-NICKS'. There are other names to learn such as Awatukee (Ah-wa-Too-Kee) but that will be included in the advanced course. 2. The morning rush hour is from 5:00 am to noon. The evening rush hour is from noon to 7:00 pm. Friday's rush hour starts on Thursday morning. 3. The minimum acceptable speed on most freeways is 85 mph. On Loop 101, your speed is expected to at least match the highway number. Anything less is considered 'Wussy'. 4. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Phoenix has its own version of traffic rules. For example, cars/trucks with the loudest muffler go first at a four-way stop; the trucks with the biggest tires go second. However, East Valley, SUV-driving, cell phone-talking moms ALWAYS have the right of way. 5. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear ended, cussed out, and possibly shot. 6. Never honk at anyone. Ever. Seriously. It's another off ...
Finished spray tanning tomorrow's bride with the ONE hour solution! I'm think water day for me and the kids. Lake Mary or Oak Creek canyon?
We leave tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM for AZ and CA.

Featuring the best photos of Sedona, AZ
Sunday we spent the day in the Flag Staff area. First we rode the chairlift at the Snow Bowl ski area to the top of a 11,500 foot mountain. Then we drove through Sedona. Lots of tourists’ but no John McCain. On the way home we twist and turned our way through Oak Creek Canyon, Red Rock Park and Slide Rock Park. We must go back to Slide Rock when the kids are back in school it’s really cool.
We were scouting in Oak Creek Canyon and stopped by the only store for miles for some water. As we're leaving, I notice this guy staring at me. He started pointing at me, almost stuttering.and finally got out, "Are you Tony Sweet?".I gave my standard reply, "Are you the FBI?" He asked again, and I said yes. He said that the bandana and hair piqued his interest, but the Cape May shirt gave it away! I can run, but I can't hide!
Road trippin' with my favorite ally - little bit of Grand Canyon, some Oak Creek Canyon, some Petrified Forest, and some Painted Desert.
Been in northern Arizona since Wednesday! Pitched a tent among pinyon pines next to a small, alpine lake outside Williams which is close to Flagstaff! Used it as a base to spend time in Sedona (beautiful but God has it gotten snobby), Oak Creek Canyon (was it always this crowded?), and the Grand Canyon (you can never go there enough)! Delivered son Travis to the organic farm up there he'll be workin' at for the next six weeks! All he wanted was his mountain bike so we deliver! Spent Sunday next to the lake readin' Tony Hillerman (the one book I apparently missed) and Edward Abbey essays on the American West. Was TV and newspaper free the whole time except for the Arizona Republic Saturday edition with a screamin' headline OKLAHOMA HIT AGAIN and a front page photo of a bigass tornado! That I read! Now I see on Terri Farthing's site (yes, I am alive) that Del City flooded! Has Del City ever flooded? Hope everybody is hangin' in there!
95 degrees when I came off the road today!! Predicting 98 for Friday. Sounds like a good day to take my car to Flagstaff for service. No rain in sight either. Visiting Sedona? Go up to Oak Creek Canyon and cool down during the day. Our early mornings are cool & beautiful, so are our evenings. Just find a cool spot for the late Morning and afternoon and you'll survive our heat!
Any of my Tucson friends know where to go fishing in the Summer?

More images from our short get-away to Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona... proving that Liam and Blue Russ were with us (not in other shots) and all the fun the kids had. Liam and good friend Gabby had fun hiking around the creek and spending time together - her parents run The Butterfly Garden Inn cabins we love.
My friends, Bill & Fran took me up on top of South Mountain, in Phoenix, yesterday for my the 1st time. Wow, looking out over the valley it was pretty awesome. I could see a lot of the valley, except for all the dust in the air. Still a very moving experience. I wished it was better access for my wheelchair. Watched the sun go down and the lights of the city come on. Then my body gave out. Went to Pete's Fish and got dinner. Jill and Austin will be home tonight. I really miss them so much.

Help!!! Looking for a good date spot to get an amazing steak in Saddleback Valley.
Today was West Fork trail down in Oak Creek Canyon and pretty spectacular it was too. The setting was very Jurassic Park - eat your heart out Steven Spielberg. Ros you would have loved the wildlife. The high altitude does make a difference - or it might just be little old unfit me. We had forgotten to bring enough water so we struggled a little. The walk took us past Mayhew Lodge now in ruins but originally a resort for the rich and famous such as Jimmy Stewart, Walt Disney and Clark Gable. Back to base via Safeway again for supplies but not really needed as Sonesta Suites - our hotel - had laid on tea which included some great Hooters beer which I highly recommend. No energy left for anything else now ...

I think I'll hike fat mans lope today. Oh, wait, I can't cause there is a foot of snow outside! Goal for this summer is to hike as many trails as I can in Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona. Who's with me?

I don't know if you remember us Rick, but I'm the person you met in Oak Creek Canyon @ Indian Gardens a few months back Best!
The Grand Canyon is justifiably world-famous for its jaw-dropping scenery and is considered one of the seven wonders of the natural world. This trip of a lifetime will be made all the more memorable by the knowledge that every step will raise much needed funds to improve the lives of young people who are living with cancer. After flying out to Phoenix, Arizona, we spend the second day getting used to the terrain. After driving through the Sonoran Desert and arriving in Sedona, we’ll be walking along Oak Creek Canyon before heading to Flagstaff (which lies on the historic Route 66!) for the night. The main challenge begins on day three when we go to our trailhead at Hualapai Hilltop, where we begin the descent into the Grand Canyon. We’ll be heading towards Supai, the centre of the Havasupai Indian Reservation and the most remote village in mainland USA. The trail goes steeply down from the crater rim, roughly 3,000 feet, and then we’ll follow the river bed into Supai, which will be our home for 3 n ...

AZ Peeps: Penny and I took a trip to Sedona this last weekend, hiked the West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon, which is about 10 miles(?) north of Uptown Sedona. It was nearly 60 degrees out, but there was up to 12" of snow on the ground, and the creek was partially frozen over. It was a gorgeous day and a great little hike (photos coming soon). Looks like they're getting more snow today; definitely worth a trip up there. Just sayin'.
Trina and I unloaded our cameras, and have hundreds of pictures from the weekend.I won't post them all! (Yes, we did take a 4-day weekend!) We had on our bucket list for this year to go to the Grand Canyon for both a sunset and a sunrise, which was the start of our weekend. Pictures do not begin to do justice to the colors and the vastness of the Canyon. (Rick and Sue Harness, I really appreciate the hike you did from rim to rim!!) We traveled East to the Navajo Nation, and enjoyed meeting and visiting with some folks there, learning about their land and the tales of recent generations (thank you, Pernell!) then we took a short excursion to Sedona, by way of Oak Creek Canyon, and stopped at the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert on the way back home.
Well, I am ONE HAPPY CAMPER! I am in my favorite place in Arizona - Sedona. And happily ensconced for a week or more in a most beautiful RV park/campground with views of the red rocks from my site and right next to Oak Creek! I can hear it running, there are big cottonwood trees and it's QUIET! and yet right next to town, you'd never know. So, to catch up, Monday after the cruise I drove through Lost Dutchman State Park, spent the night at a KOA in Apache Junction where I did laundry and went in the pool and hot tub. Then Tues. drove the back way up 87 and stayed around Payson for the day, boondocking at the Walmart there. Today came on in to Sedona, drove up Oak Creek Canyon, (love that canyon, SO wish there was camping there), went to the Visitor Center in Flagstaff, then drove back down 17 to Sedona and settled in. God is SO Good!

I loved this Travel log and it applies to this area- so here it is: * "Re: Route 66 - LA to Chicago Mar 23, 2011, 4:59 AM Destination Expert for Road Trips Another episode. After visiting GCNP leave this majestic NP via its east entrance. Make a last stop at Desert View watchtower and head for Cameron and its Trading Post. South to Flagstaff then via the Wupatki NM and Sunset Crater loop. Just east of Flag is a nice little NM called Walnut Canyon. Flagstaff is an R66 town. The main road goes right through town and you'll find several R66 shops. Flagstaff also has a nice and cosy down town worth a stop. If you have the time you can head south to Sedona now via wonderful az89A and Oak Creek Canyon. Many things to explore in Sedona. You also can decide to follow I40 east from Flagstaff. There's the exit 219 to Twin Arrows. It's just a loop to the Arrows and the abandonned fuel station and there's a low congrete wall but it makes an easy visit and it's an R66 relic. Further east there's a ...

What an AMAZING & exhausting weekend :) Made about a 3.5 mile hike around Lake Sahuaro yesterday with Derek; then today Nathan, Derek & I hiked 6 miles on Boynton Canyon Trail in Sedona :) Then we did some exploring/sightseeing in Sedona, and drove up & out Oak Creek Canyon and had dinner at an AWESOME brewery in Flagstaff. Got home & had a lovely hot bath and about to make a nice hot cup of cocoa while I cuddle up with Nathan on the couch. I'm pretty sure we're going to sleep very well tonight :D

It's about that time to start planning your summer camping reservations! Especially the big three weekends or Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends. Those weekends fill up months in advance so don't be left out in the cold on a campsite. For example, Cave Springs is completely booked for the 11 campsites along Oak Creek for that weekend and Spillway campground at Woods Canyon Lake only has a few sites available left for that weekend. Visit and plan for your next big camping trip now!

Canyon High School Lockdown Lifted: Law enforcement lifted the lockdown on Canyon High School this morning at about 11:15 a.m., after thoroughly checking the hallways and rooms. The campus will continue under modified lockdown, which means normal operations but limited access, and law enforcement will continue a stepped-up presence at the school, for the remainder of the day. We would like to thank the Comal County Sheriff’s Office and New Braunfels Police Department for their support throughout the morning. Our students’ safety and security is our top priority at Comal ISD.

What a long day, but completely exhilarating!!! Charlie and I ride our bikes up to Sedona, through Oak Creek Canyon, up to Flagstaff and back to Phoenix. Met some of our friends for dinner on the way back home and stopped over to visit my dad! Weather was perfect, traffic was great, first ride "out of town" went smooth, dinner and visit with JT & Nora, John & Sandy and the other John. Also ran into other friends at dinner that I haven't seen in forever, Alan & Linda and Darren & Barb. Finally home, showered and relaxing watching SNL. Did I mention it was a great day?
We lived in Sedona (Oak Creek Canyon) on Bell Rock Blvd. for 1 year while Bill was excellent chef at Cliff Castle Casino (for the Yavapai Apache Nation)
Tomorrow morning early, I am leaving for Phoenix. Then by motor coach to Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, The Grand Canyon, Flagstaff to Black Bart's Steak House. Next to Jerome, board the Verde Canyon Railway for a 4 hour ride through Wilderness and 2 national forests. We have a farewell dinner at the Blazin' M Ranch with a Chuckwagon dinner and Stage Show. Lastly, we go to Old Town Scottsdale and back to Phoenix for our flight back to LAX. We are staying at the Hilton Sedona Resort and Spa. Care to join us??
Oak Creek Canyon in the fall. This is just outside Sedona. Thanks, Mixtress Hava!!
It was many years ago when I had a stay in Sedona, Arizona. As usual...I was there to collect images for new paintings. In my travels there I came upon this regional park amidst the windings of Oak Creek, a little creek that meanders south by way of Oak Creek Canyon and through the Sedona area. While I was there I took a tranquil hike around the park taking images and this was painted form one of them. Entitled: The Red Rock Path, 28" X 22"

It was warm about 70 degrees in Oak Creek Canyon 50 at the Arizona Snowbowl, and raining Flagstaff but it was somewhere in between... ventured about 5,000ft in elevation today
Back at base. Great trip: Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, Planes of Fame at Valle Airport, Williams, Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona and finally back to Phoenix
From Flagstaff to Sedona, you are constantly going down, down down. And the temperature constantly goes up, up, up.
Rode my bike back to Grand Canyon yesterday! Made it up through Sedona's Oak Creek Canyon to Flagstaff, then up to San Fransisco Peaks till I got to the 8000 ft pass and spotted a tiny chapel to rest for a bit. 80 miles to this point. A guy stopped to pee and ended up giving me a lift the rest the way to GC! Things like that could turn me religious! I was so happy...because I didn't have anything to keep warm overnight and I doubted I could keep going that last 50 miles!
On a day like today, all I want to do is drive through Oak Creek Canyon. Anyone, for an adventure?
Join me October 16 - 21, Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona, AZ for The Chrysalis Retreat at the Butterfly Inn. A retreat...
Just Pretty... This was taken at Slide Rock in Oak Creek Canyon (about 15 minutes from Sedona Real) by Noel Reynolds.
Left Scottsdale at about 9:00 and headed out on hwy 87 to Payson. The road kept getting higher and higher and colder and colder, until we had to get the liners out and plug them in. Shortly after the town of Strawberry headed north on 260 to Cottonwood, where we had lunch. Then headed out on 89A to Sedona (should have had lunch here). The ride into Sedona was pretty, and canyon walls were very colorful. We also took our liners off as it was getting warmer. After Sedona went through Oak Creek Canyon, very twisty, but a lot of traffic. Also Sedona is a very touristy town. Continued up 89A through Flagstaff. There was a forest fire to the west could see and smell the smoke. After Flagstaff it was getting colder again and but our liners back on as it was getting higher and colder and more mountainous. Continued on hwy 89 where the road slowly became lower again and more desert like and straighter and warmer. Made into Tuba City where we will spend the night. A pretty uneventful day except for the ...

No stinkin' TV's-No phone-no internet-just Ann & the Dewstah! Greetings to all.

Pendley Homestead Trail is a paved, level, barrier-free trail of 0.25 miles. This easy hike extends through a portion of the historic Pendley Homestead of Slide Rock State Park. The Pendley family homesteaded this area in the early 1900s, eventually becoming the largest apple producer in Oak Creek Canyon.Features along the trail include some of the original apple orchards, the Pendley house, tourist cabins, an apple-packing barn, historic farming implements used at the homestead, a new orchard of semi-dwarf apple trees, and spectacular views of Oak Creek Canyon. Popular Slide Rock State Park can become extremely crowded in summer. Parking is easier and the atmosphere more peaceful at other times of the year.
Oak Creek Canyon, near Sedona, a spectacular and diverse riparian area is the state’s second most popular canyon.
So for those of you that are in other parts of Arizona: This would be a good weekend to come up and look at the leaves changing. The higher elevations are nice and golden now with the aspens changing. Wait a couple of weeks for the reds of Oak Creek Canyon.
Our extended family has returned to Havasu after a wonderful wedding and touring of the Sedona area. Hikes on the West Fork of the Oak Creek Canyon.
Thanks for the RT! Do you know any great spots for winter fly fishing in Oak Creek Canyon?
Took a road trip today. Went to the Pow-Wow at Watson Lake for awhile, then went to Williams & drove around for a little bit and then up to Flagstaff & back down thru Oak Creek Canyon thru Sedona & back home. The traffic was horrendous on I-17. So many trucks were going slow which slowed the rest of the vehicles up. Was glad to get off the interstate unto 169.
Well, yesterday was titled flexibility. At the Celtic Festival we watched sheep herding, listened to a balladier and bagpipes, had a treat at the tea room and scanned the 5 - yes 5 - vendors. Nothing more was scheduled for 2 hours and was a repeat of what we'd seen; we'd only been there 1/2 hour. So we changed our plans and had a lovely time touristing the Sedona shops, then drove to Flagstaff through Oak Creek Canyon and Red Rock State Park. Gorgeous, gorgeous with fields of yellow will flowers and mountain vistas; made us homesick for our beloved Montana. Then the motel in Flagstaff put barking dogs right next door. We asked to move, they gave us a refund, and move we did - to Holbrook and a new motel! It was closer to the Artisians Fair in Pinetop, our next destination, and way more quiet. So all was well that ended well.
