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.

2:30 p.m. update: Air support grounded due to winds, reaches top of Oak Creek Canyon
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. They said that it takes a couple of days for them to receive resources so they would be so grateful to receive gatorade, water and protein bars etc. Please share and help spread the word so we can do our utmost to support them.

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!)
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.

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."

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 Sedona...so BE SAFE GUYS!!

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.

Bob and I went to Call 'O the Canyon. It is in oak creek canyon. just north of Slide Rock. It is so nice. We will be going back again. here are 7 photos that Bob took.
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 ..

Anyone else have questions from Royal Gorge Fire we can help answer?
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 !

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 ...
Oak Creek Canyon - looking forward to being able to hike again.

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 once...off course on some random gravel road for a hour and a half that SUCKED! Thanks LoLa (thats our GPS's name) :)

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

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.

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 ...

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?

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.
