Devil’s Bridge

Would you take a stroll out to the center of this natural rock bridge? I’ve heard there is a great view from the middle!

Sedona Star

Climbing around on rocks is the thing to do in Sedona. The timing for this hike was perfect for me to get the sun right in the middle of Cathedral Rock. The bright light was a perfect path to follow to our destination.

In the Desert

Life in the desert can be hard. Keep it interesting by showing off your bright green colors whenever you can!

The Middle of the Rock

The hike up to the saddle of Cathedral Rock isn’t far, but it is way up above where you start. The vantage point isn’t expected until you pop out at the top, and get a nice look at the rock on each side of you and the view down below.

The Hike Starts Before Dawn

To get to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back up in one day, you should start well before dawn. This is near the top of the canyon, and you will take many more switchbacks like it before you get to the bottom.

First Light

The trail on the left was the start of a very long but very rewarding day of hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back. It might look like daylight in this picture, but the sun had just come up on the other side of the ridge to reveal this view.

Sedona Sunrise

After hiking the Grand Canyon the day before it was difficult to motivate for this sunrise shot. I was worried the sky would be covered in clouds, but I was lucky and there were just enough to make the sunrise even better.

I started the descent into the Grand Canyon in near total darkness. That wasn’t much fun, but it did mean that I was able to see the sunrise from many angles on the way down!


Grand Canyon after Sundown

I recently hiked the Grand Canyon and spent some time in the Southwest, so this blog may have that kind of vibe going on for awhile. After watching the sun set facing the other direction, I went back to this spot. The light seemed flat at first, but also really brought out some of the colors and removed all the shadows that previously darkened many of the details.
