[Sleeping in the Canyons – Sedona, AZ]

November 3, 2016

We started our walk to Secret Canyon trail and stopped roughly 3.5 miles in where we set camp. You are not allowed to set a camp a mile from the trail head and if you, like us, got a four wheel drive car that made it to 1-2 miles to the trailhead then you are going to be walking about 5 miles all in.

I really was annoyed after the 5-mile loop we had just done, I just didn’t feel like doing anything anymore so I decided to be difficult. Brian tried to help me set my pack so that it fit right while Ben was carbo loading and I punished him by taking these unattractive photos.

Said pictures, Ben loading up on carbs

The feeling of finding a map after walking in the desert is one you will always love.

Setting a fire in the desert was scary easy, a lot of wood was actually cacti. Sorry cacti.

The sun set over the canyons and we were lucky enough to be on an elevated spot in the middle.

The next morning as the sun woke us up, we set back out on the trail.
