Hmm, not overly sure I’m a fan of this ‘under your own steam’ caper we’ve got going on here. I quite liked the sitting on a horse and letting someone else do all the work! Nonetheless, here we are in Sedona, ready to check out the stunning rock formations that surround the whole area.

Naturally, the girls have been overwhelmed with our enthusiasm for the natural surrounds...oh wow, look at those rocks...we’ve warned them to expect that a lot over the next few days. Who isn’t enthralled by the riveting tales of Geology 101?!

First stop was Cathedral Rock where we clambered up some red rock formations (me only part way) to enjoy some stunning views. Some were more interested in the morning tea on offer.

Next stop was the Mescal Trail towards Devil’s Bridge. A beautiful walk through the forest, surrounded by stunning rock formations before the sides of the trail started to be dotted with patches of snow and ice...of course, this is when we started climbing up, up, up over rocks to arrive at the bridge itself. The whole ice flow over rocks/20m drop thing proved a little unappealing for some participants...who attempted a hasty retreat from said drop-zone...only hindered by steep and freezing rock descent...finally made it to solid and less frozen enjoy the experience!! Once we were travelling in flat ground, in the sun, it was actually really beautiful!!
