After breakfast we ventured up the other side of the trail where we could look down on hikers far below.
Dixie was happy to see us and agreed that she may have enjoyed the train ride but would have hated the singing! CC's fridge was dead when we got home so we lost all our frozen food and lots of our fresh stuff Yikes, another problem? Luckily, in the morning light, Chris was able to wiggle some wires back into submission and low and behold, the fridge turned cold again! We did detect another problem with a back jack and headed southwest to Sedona to explore while the parts made their way to the repair shop.
Rancho Sedona RV Park was quite pleasant with a small river running beside it, white winding sycamore trees overhead and sculptured red rock buttes looming in the distance. There were egrets minding their nests in a rookery just 25 feet above the RVs. Spent a good part of the next three days exploring the famous red rock country by car and on foot. The sky was active with clouds and produced some dramatic light play across the buttes and valleys. As well as some great trails to hike, we saw many birds and cacti among the low green trees and crimson pathways. Dixie's pads were packed with the distinctive red dust of Sedona.
