Excellent idea for a Group Page Ms Skeem. I live n Oak City and will keep a sharp eye for strays - hey wait thats everybody! J/k Most animal owners obey the leash law in Oak City but occasionally a stray is seen now and again. Over the years. Dont call Animal Control unless the animal is unruly and or causing a problem which would endanger another. The fee's for a lost animal are outrageous, or if anyone in Oak City see's a stray - call me and I will come get the animal and find it's owner. If I can not find the owner immediately, i will take it to another level of which I have many resources at my disposal of those are NOT cruelty. Often times, people leave dogs up at the mouth of the Oak Creek Canyon because they are irresponsible. Keep in mind also, Millard County is full of Coyote Packs and Mountain Lions (this is why I have pitbulls) chances of a missing animal outside of the city limits after 48 hours is slim. BEST CHANCE is to UPLOAD a photo and there are a lot of people posting in here with no pho ...

This is Sedona's beautiful Oak Creek Canyon, currently being consumed by a human-caused fire that started near Slide Rock yesterday. It has rampaged north, burning through West Fork. So many beautiful areas of AZ I have loved to hike have been devastated by fire since I've been here, and most of them human-caused. :( Suzanne can you see it now? I reposted. Elaine Davies, Bob Davies, Matthew Davies, Megan Davies - I know you really enjoyed Slide Rock when you were visiting.

I'm sure every Flagstaff, Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona resident who has family elsewhere around the state, country and globe are starting to receive calls and messages making sure they are ok. Toby and I are currently fine and our neighborhood is about 15 miles' away from the flames. Rhiannon is on a camping trip over 100 miles' north of town with her class. They have pretty well-thought-out trigger markers planned out at the incident mgmt centers - they are taking a currently evacuated forest road that is probably 5-10 miles' away from residences - the fire moved about 4 miles this morning - and saying that if the fire jumps that road they will evacuate the neighborhoods just south of town. We are just to the north of town - so approximately 15 miles' away or more currently. We're watching it closely. I have a full tank of gas in the jeep and loads of food and drink so ALL IS WELL. Our neighbors to the South are not faring well though. Fingers crossed.

Alright...I've held off posting anything fearful...anything angry...but Oak Creek Canyon is my second home. My Grandfather's cabin stands .5 miles from slide rock, and I not only learned to walk in that canyon but taught my son to do the same. I know fires happen. I know the earth goes through destruction and regrowth. But I am having a hard time coming to terms with the thought of a grip of drunk college kids burning down a place so dear to me...I am about to attend a music festival in California- I will gracefully go into their state and leave it just as I found it- I will be responsible for my actions...why is this so hard...what is missing in our culture...I hold space for my family's cabin, the memories held there. I hold space for all involved. The canyon will heal. I know. But forgiving those that inflict wounds has been a difficult lesson. I am learning.

Prayers for all affected by the massive fire in northern Arizona, Oak Creek Canyon, for the fire-fighters and evacuees.
Air support grounded on Slide fire due to winds There is currently no air support for the Slide fire. All aircraft were grounded due to the winds about half an hour ago. A DC-10 heavy air tanker was ordered when it reached the flats to the west of Oak Creek Canyon, but the plane has been temporarily cancelled. The Slide fire has now reached the top of Oak Creek Canyon at the Highway 89A switchbacks, according to Flagstaff Fire Department officials. It is burning in the mouth of nearby Pumphouse Wash, but it's not clear how established it is at that point. Pumphouse Wash was considered the trigger point for pre-evacuation notices in Kachina Village.
Fire Station 1 on Southwest Drive is very appreciative for those people who are bringing by supplies for the brave fireman who are trying to save Oak Creek Canyon.

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 ...

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!)

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.

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.
Thoughts and prayers for the firefighters and displaced people in Sedona's Oak Creek Canyon...

Prayers to the families that live in Oak Creek Canyon, Mother Nature, the sweet animals and all the firemen/women.:'( Prayers for the wind to slow down and safety for all involved in this tragedy!
Fires in Oak Creek Canyon and at Sunset Point. Please PLEASE be careful, friends. Let's take care of our beautiful state.
Sending prayers out to the communities near I-17 at Sunset Point and Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon. Prayers out to those risking their lives to gain control of raging wildfires burning right now. Try to avoid traveling in these areas. It is super windy and super smokie.
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 ...
