a little hiking off sedona’s red rock scenic byway. the plan was to hike around the courthouse butte, but when we get there the parking lot was full of cars. too many people for us!
drive a little north and parked at the courthouse vista. once we starting hiking we realized that most of the people took photos from the parking lot of 15 feet into the trail. after a mile of so, the trails were all ours. we kept meanering on the trails and ended up a chicken point. you can see it on the map in the top right corner. ended up hiking a little over 9 miles. blue skies. red rocks. pretty much a perfect day.
