the terrain is not easy to maneuver to get to this spot...it'd be fine if it was just you, your bag and some steady feet...add a Rubbermaid tote chock full of towels, bread, pb & j, iPod player thingy, helping little kids manage the terrain and some slippery rocks and down we go. David was most helpful in carrying the tote to our "destination"...it was heavy. Somehow, he slipped and our entire tote went into this spot above, where Will is...that is why the towels are laid out like this, in hopes that they would dry enough to use and not weigh 30 pounds each for the trek back.
amazing creation...note: the upper right hand side of the picture...that jaggedy, bumpy rock was our walk way up...hence, David's inevitable fall with tote. looking back at this now, I'm shocked we made it at all with all the junk we were toting.
needless to say, the water was icy cold. Will's dunking his head in it!
That bathroom over there? yeah, I couldn't get to it without slipping and killing myself...I should've hit the port-a-john's at the entrance but yeah, i don't DO port-a-john's.
Sedona, Slide Rock, everything Arizona (including that canyon up north) is cool with it's red rock, bright blue skies, and millions of green trees and cool hilly areas.
It did make me miss the flat, gray terrain of Indiana. a little.
