Salome Jug

This is a most excellent place, but a very dangerous place. As our group was rappelling down the waterfall, two grossly unprepared young adults decided to try to down climb to the cliff jump and one them feel. He was seriously injured. His list of injuries included two broken wrists, dislocated elbow, dislocated shoulder, two broken kneecaps, broken nose, lots of bruising, but no major head trauma.

Sedona Camp Out!

Durtgurl planned a most excellent camp out in Sedona at Chavez Campground this weekend.

I missed Saturdays ride, cuz I ended up kayaking nearby on the Verde River with the Flagstaff River Rats.

I pulled into Chavez Campground around 7:00 pm after chowing down on a most excellent Colorado beef burrito at El Patio in Mcguireville. I had a few beers and conked out, only to dream about the super awesome Sedona trails.

The camp out group was rather large, but those interested in pedaling on Sunday was pretty small. Nuckies, NMBikeWidow (both from New Mexico), BrianC and myself split from camp a little after 10:00 am for a nice little 3 hour tour of some very fun trails.

Our route consisted of Broken Arrow (to chicken point), Little Horse, Llama, Bell Rock Pathway, Made in the Shade, Slim Shady and Templeton. We did about 13 or 14 miles at a social pace that included about 2K vf of climbing.

Here is a video of the day:
