Five Shots: Hiking in Sycamore Canyon

Jim, Bear, and I went out for fresh air and a hike through Sycamore Canyon. From rim to rim it’s seven miles, although we only went a couple. The air was cool and the sun warmed our backs. Here are eleven shots–come with us.

Arizona’s Red Rock country features the populated Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona, Arizona. Sycamore Canyon is the second largest canyon in the area with approximately 56,000 acres of primitive wilderness. Just last week Jim spotted a mountain lion print and we spotted a Mule buck with a wide rack and over six points. We’re making plans to camp in a couple weeks. Here’s the website if you want to read more about the area I call home.

  1. Awesome photos. It’s hard to say which one I like the best. I guess my vote would go the one with the pinkish mountain range in the background and a stream in the center. I also like the picture of the man leaning against a tower of rocks. Did the rock pile form naturally or were the rocks placed one on top of the other?
