If I had been by myself this hike in 110 degrees never would've happened.
But I had picked up two good friends, Jen and Mary, in Phoenix for the rest of the southwest leg of the trip. Sedona was our first stop and we arrived just in time for the hottest part of the day, determined to see those pretty red rocks. What we thought was a 1 mile hike was actually 3.6, and it was steeeeep. But we had fun and the view from the top was gorgeous
