Our first hike in Flagstaff

Chapter 1 on what I did on my summer vacation.  Only it was in late September. We flew into Phoenix and drove to Sedona.  We spent an afternoon there and then went to Flagstaff for 4 days. Our first hike was to Walnut Canyon, just 20 minutes outside of Flagstaff. We hiked down the main trail and around part of the canyon, passing by the remains of homes left by Native Americans many years ago.  You can read more about the park here. It’s much smaller than the Grand Canyon but very different and fun to walk around. The 240 steps back up the cliff to the top wasn’t too bad. I’m glad I’ve been using the stairs at work a lot. We would stop and rest and look out over the canyon periodically. I took a ton of pictures so more to come.

  1. Super place to go on your vacation, whatever month or season it was! (Well, you wouldn’t want to be there mid-winter. Flagstaff gets COLD! But how beautiful it is and what a wonderful contrast to Florida! Beautiful pictures, of course. And yes, good you’ve been practicing on stairs; that mountain country can kill you when you’re a flatlander (as we are now — when we visit our kids in Colorado, it takes a while to adjust!)
