Cool morning, 0 degrees Celsius at 6am, but clear blue skies and no wind. All good for hiking.
However, the morning started with a Big Bang, Bang.
When we sat down for breakfast in the lobby 4 Mexican middle class young men turned up for their brekkie. The Views Inn Motel had hard boiled eggs on offer, and one of those blokes decided to heat it up in the microwave oven. You can figure out the rest... It was not pretty.
Today's hike was recommended by the lady at the Ranger Station as a great morning walk, called Munds Wagon Trail, 11.3 km according to Runkeeper.
The trail markers were a pile of rocks in wire as per below...
A side comment on this topic - there are psychics and spiritual healers everywhere in this town because of 3 or 4 "vortex" which are believed to occur around Sedona. The vortex is supposed to be a hot spot where you can feel the earth's energy and get a heightened sense of awareness and balance. These people should get out more and hike! All hikes make you feel connected to nature not just 3 or 4 spots you can easily reach! You can guess we think its all hooey.
