Yearn to Wander
Return to Sedona Wetlands
Dry Creek Road Hikes
After a couple dozen hikes in the area, it still seems each one is different. The only constant is the weather, which has been sunny, dry, and warm (low 80sF/high 20sC) every day. Time of year, time of day, and water all contribute to the changes in the plants, animals, and geology that make the hikes so interesting.
Sedona Wetlands Preserve
The preserv is being developed to manage effluent from the Sedona Wasterwater Treatment Plant nearby and provide habitat for wildlife in the area. Birding there was productive: ducks, shorebirds, raptors, and songbirds enjoy the area.

West Fork Trail Through Oak Creek Canyon
The Bandit and Airport Loop Trails
More red rocks, a few wildflowers, and fewer birds added up to a lovely Sunday afternoon hike along Bandit and Airport Loop Trails. Traversing switchbacks to the summit offered views north to Capitol Butte and south to Cathedral Rock.
