West Fork Oak Creek Canyon in Winter, Coconino National Forest, Arizona

The West Fork Oak Creek Canyon trail was one of the places I went to during my first visit to Arizona in January 2003. I thought it was a very interesting location with potential so I had always wanted to visit again. My first visit was a bit difficult to navigate since the creek was very icy and while the creek wasn’t icy this time during stream crossings, the trail was mostly frozen over. I kept slipping and almost falling meanwhile Samantha didn’t quite have as many problems with traction. Adding ice sure does add to the adventure!

This was fun but I think I’ll try to visit during the fall season next time, or at least wear crampons so I can at least finish the trail.
