Fay Canyon
Sedona, AZ

(Apology. Our photo library is a bit sketchy. I had not yet discovered that most of the photos
(I thought I was taking) were lost due to my ignorance in how to operate Rose's camera properly.)

Fay Canyon

Fay Canyon  /  Trails End

In Canada I had worked 7 years in road construction - paving.  Mostly on hand crews, shoveling 450 degree asphalt.
It's long hot days of hard, dirty work in the sun. But I was young and fit. And when the temperature hit 90 F, nobody worked.
And in past visits to Sedona, I'd only came in the Fall - to avoid the excessive heat.

Yet here we are in late May and it was hot already. Over 85 F in the morning sun - and climbing.
"1.1 miles" said the sign at trail head.

Not far, but ...

Up the canyon we went. Our time is short and precious.

Enchantment Resort

Staggering out of the canyon I wheeze to Rose: "I see a cold drink in my future."
It was more of a promise than a premonition.

We chug over to nearby Enchantment Resort.

On the patio we enjoy a fine (and not too expensive) lunch - and several refreshments.
