Sedona, Part 2

Sedona and the surrounding National Forest have a ton of excellent hiking trails. One day, I took off on the Soldier Pass trail, which I tried to do last year, but it was closed.

Just a short distance from the trailhead is a huge sinkhole.

I was looking for the Seven Sacred Pools, and I found them!

Almost every morning, hot air balloons landed right near us.

This one was huge, with 15-20 passengers!

They managed to get it down without landing on Don and Donna's rig.

We're parked near a model airplane field, so one day we went over to watch. We had a long talk with the club president, shown here.

This was the biggest plane, which would go up and then dive down, spinning as it did. It was quite entertaining.
