Sedona in fall is just amazing. This hike was a perfect fall day hike!
We got a later start than usual because we stopped for breakfast at Sedona Bakery. I had a ham and cheese omelette and Greg had a Breakfast sandwich, Canadian bacon egg & cheddar on an Asiago bagel. We were quite impressed and will definitely keep this spot on The Map. I want to come back for their sprinkled butter cookies and other delicious looking sweets too!!
We did the trail from the North Wilson Mountain trail and did only the Sedona Overlook. This trail and route totaled us at 7.8 miles and 2375 feet in elevation. It was a beautifully cool, fall day and we saw tons of colorful fall vistas on this trail. There is an option overlook side hike listed as the North Wilson Overlook.
Sedona Overlook is named for obvious reasons.. we sat and had a long lunch and a nice cold beer taking in these beautiful red rock views.
I finally saw a tarantula in the desert!!
After the hike we stopped for lunch at Rotten Johnny’s Pizza, I had the margarita pizza and an Orange Blossom on draft Greg had a meatball sub and Lumberyard Lager. We did enjoy this meal and would definitely come back, probably would share a pizza though because they were pretty big personal pizzas 🍕
This hike completed the Az Hikers FaceBook group’s Summer hiking challenge as well as the Arizona Six-Pack of Summer hiking challenge!! We have also completed 8 of Arizona’s 20 highest peaks As listed on PeakBagger!
The Mr. is up for minor surgery on his foot next week and will be out of commission for a bit so this was our last hike this year. We are looking forward to Completing the last 12 of the highest 20 in 2020!!
