Outdoor Wednesday / Bell Rock, Sedona, Arizona
My friend, Sally, and I had a great afternoon hiking to Bell Rock and then climbing on it. We made it up to about 1/3 from the bottom. Big baskets of red rock marked the trail, although not everyone used the specified way. We finally decided we were high enough when we considered if we would be able to get back down! Coming down is actually far scarier than going up!! I do know that because I did it several years ago. I decided not to test my luck this time.
These pictures show the trail to Bell Rock and people on it at various levels. Look carefully because some people are partially hidden by bushes, etc. I took a picture of my friend trying to get up one of rocks (designated by the trail). We had some good laughs at this point. She also took my picture...but, I would never post that one! In the last 3 photos, I am wearing white and my friend is in the red (like there isn't enough red in Sedona!)
We got out of the area shortly before dark. The gentleman (Eric) who helps to run the small resort where we stayed, took our pictures when we got back. We had such a good time...I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Sedona, Arizona. Get out and play in the red rock!
