Sedona Overnight trip - October 24-25

The plan for the overnight trip to Sedona on Oct 24-25 is to go up on Tuesday, do a loop hike in Red Rock State Park (RRSP - reduced park fee of $2.00 per person), spend the night, and then do West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon on Wednesday, getting there when they open at 8:00 am.  We can do both C & D hikes at each place.  The maximum length at both locations is about 7 miles with elevation gains under 800, so there is no true B level hike (but B hikers can come for the views).

We'll meet/depart at 6:30/6:45.  If you already have a car load you can just meet us at the trailhead.  You can figure it's about 2:15 to get to RRSP on Tuesday with a stop at McDonalds Exit 287), so we'll plan to meet at the trailhead/visitor's center at 9:00.  When paying, mention that you are with the Pebble Creek Hiking Club to get the discount.

You can do either day or both.  Just be at the trailheads accordingly (Tuesday at 9:00 or Wednesday just after 8:00).

I have booked a room at the Days Inn Kokopelli (I used Trivago.com to find good pricing - booking.com had rooms for $101 + tax).  About half of last year's overnight group stayed there (breakfast was included).  

Let me know if you plan to join me for day 1 one, day 2, or both days, what level of hike, where you are staying if doing both days, if you plan to drive, and if you have riders already or are looking for a ride (that's me right now), so we can plan carpools.
