I've really enjoyed my spring in the Phoenix area, but it's gotten too hot even for me. But before I left, I made one more trip to find the perfect saguaro cactus bloom - this time to Canyon Lake.
And I think I found it! Thanks to the droopy arm on this guy, I can get a picture without a 20-foot ladder.
I moved up to Sedona, parking in the spot the WINs were in 4 years ago, on FR525. Unfortunately, this balloon company did not like that there were RVs parked there.
So at 5am, they parked 3 feet away from each of the 3 rigs there, and blew up their balloons. This parking area is bigger than several football fields, and there was no reason for them to park so close!
We gave up and moved to a different location, and then went on a great hike. Doe Mountain was recommended by the guy at the Visitor's Center.
It was a great hike. Some of the trail was a bit unique.
And the view from the top was spectacular!
