Last night after visiting with a friend, I left the Grand Canyon for probably the last time in a while, and headed down to Flagstaff for the night. I awoke early, ate the sub-par continental breakfast and the hit the road headed south to Sedona. I had heard a lot about Sedona, but this would be my first visit to the "Land of the Vortex".
After a scenic and interesting ride through Oak Creek Canyon I drove through the actual town of Sedona, went grocery shopping for some camping food, and then headed off to Boynton Canyon. The Boynton canyon Trail is one of the more popular trails in the area, but luckily I arrived early enough in the morning that finding a parking space was not an issue. After parking and paying the required parking fee I hit the trail. The views were immediately striking with lots of red rock canyon walls.
After checking out the weird religious/vortex site I headed further up the canyon.
The hike back was just as scenic as the hike in.
