Slide Rock Park + West Fork Trail | Sedona, Arizona

We got up to Sedona around 11:30, not as early as we'd hoped and tried to get into West Fork but the line to park was to the road and the lot was full. So we went down to Slide Rock Park first since I'd never been there. There we spent about 45 minute to an hour just walking along the river, as far up as you can.

After lunch we decided to attempt West Fork Trail again...This time with success! I was really happy that there was room at the trailhead to park since this is another trail I'd never been able to do in Sedona. 
In 2014 Sedona experienced one of the worst fires in recent memory and there are still some dangers...I think putting risk of death as the very first warning may be a bit on the extreme side however. :)
Before getting into the forest part of the trail there are some remnants of a once famous resort. This circular "window" was my favorite.

Really cool rock shelf and curved wall. The photo doesn't do it justice.
