Today we rode:
4 Hr 11min
5883 feet of climbing
11.5 mph average
This is probably the most scenic area in AZ; a place Michele and I have frequented with the kids many times. It was fun to experience it from a different point of view this time. If you never have been to Sedona, put it on your do-list. During the climb from Sedona to Flagstaff, I really enjoyed the smell of the pine trees and other plant and flowers I could not recognize. Fantastic!! Now if that persistent huffing and puffing would quiet down I might be able to hear the surroundings also.
We're off to dinner now....talk to you soon.
|Group breakfast at 6:00AM|
|The red rock along the way is even more brilliant in person|
|'Snoopy Rock' in Sedona. Can you find him??|
|Climbing, and climbing from Sedona to Flagstaff. Beautiful!!|
|From the Viewpoint Summit: Approx 6300 feet altitude. See the road we climbed - center/left of picture. Notice the edge of the switchbacks lower-right edge.|
|The Switchbacks.....5-9% grade and about two miles long. I was really happy to get to the top of this grade!!!|
|Here is a map and profile view of the route.|
