summer color

Published on July 17, 2010 by

Last month James and I hiked 14+ miles down the West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon.

There we found summer color.

They say that this is the most beautiful place in Arizona.

I understand why they might say that.
Most (if not all) the guidebooks tell that to hike the West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon you need a second vehicle at the end to shuttle back to the start… but the other option is quite simply to just walk back. That is what we did. We walked back to our vehicle via climbing the 33 switchbacks of the AB young trail.
Great views above the AB young trail.

Blue lupine flowers on the final dirt road walk back to the car.

West Fork was on my todo list for 6+ years. Thank you James, for helping me tick that one off the list.

McKenna is enjoying the colorful summer too.

She is the smallest and cutest teacher I’ve ever had…

And she loves the trail.
