Autumn-Morning-in-West-Fork1.jpg
Autumn Morning in West Fork.  In any season, the West Fork of Oak Creek is a supremely beautiful place to hike – one of the best around Sedona or, indeed, anywhere in Arizona.  But it really shows off its colors in the fall, especially if it’s a good year (I’m not sure that anyone knows why some years are so much better than others).  This year (2021) was not one of the best, at least not when I was able to get there - but there were nonetheless a few exceptions.  This young tree (a willow, I believe) clearly missed the memo and decided to go all out.<br />
