After suffering through record heat of 100 friggin’ degrees in Phoenix, Carol and I are happy to be back in Sedona.
At 4,200 ft, it’s quite a bit cooler and was mid 70’s when we arrived and dropped to 59F overnight. First good sleep we’ve had in a while.
Last week, I commented about all of the trails around town and I hit ’em this morning for a run. Unlike Mt Tam where a lot of the trails are covered with soft redwood needles, these are killers. Sharp rocks everywhere means that a fall could be costly. And I biff hard every year or so. It’s only a matter of time.
Another issue is that I no longer carry water. Learned this trick from KR. Just pretend you’re a camel. Of course signs at all of the trailheads say to carry water and food. Oh well, just don’t biff.
But if you do, luckily the trails are well used and perhaps a good samaritan will come by.
