We'll be hiking several awesome locations in the SEDONA area. The difficulty ratings range from EASY to "SEMI-KINDA-TOUGH". None of the hikes are more difficult than last weeks "TOP of TOPANGA" hike.
The pace will be VERY relaxed... cuz no-body wants to be rushed on vacation, and I'm sure everyone wants the opportunity to take several photos. We'll have a VERY loose schedule so there will be several opportunities for people to explore by themselves, shop, or go to the "New Age Center" for a variety of services and or gifts. Other activities in the Sedona area include: Helicopter Ride, Bi-Plane ride, Pink Jeep Tour and Petroglyph Tour. (link below)
We'll meet for breakfast each morning at the "Canyon Breeze" (a couple blocks from the hotel - location on the map) to discuss that days activities, AND we'll meet at a designated meeting place each night to share what we've done that day!!! (exact times and locations "To Be Determined" = TBD)
Activities on the list are:
-Hike Cathedral Rock (vortex)
-Hike Red Rocks Crossing (vortex)
-Hike Boynton Canyon (vortex and Indian ruins)
-Hike Schnebly Hill (medicine circle)
-Nightlife in Jerome (a lazy artists colony and a Haunted Saloon and EXCELLENT burgers)
-New Age Center
WE'LL BE CARAVANING TO HIKES AND ETC.
***You'll be making your own arrangements for transportation and hotel accomodations****
It's an 8 hour drive from LA to Sedona
I'll have a block of rooms available at the IRIS INN hotel in "uptown" as well as suggestions for other hotels in the area. (FINALIZING ROOMS SOON... don't call yet, I'm trying for a group rate)
I'll be driving up Wednesday morning the 13th (8AM-ish / exact time TBD ) and driving back Sunday afternoon. If anyone wants to drive up the following day, that would also work... you could meet-up with the group that eve for dinner.
Other options are flying to Phoenix, renting a car and driving the 2 hours to Sedona. You'll be able to meet with the group when we meet for the evening, or following breakfast. (exact location and time TBD)
It may be a good idea to have a "pre-trip meeting" to answer any questions. We'll decide on a time and a place in the coming weeks.
Exact daily itinerary will be determined in the coming weeks also, but we'll probably make it up as we go along anyhow, since weather may play a factor.
Below are all the links you'll need
If you have questions that I've already covered or that can be answered by Googling it yourself, I probably wont have time to answer it.
