Got To Go In The Forest

When you got to go in the forest with a shovel and toilet paper, you aim to do your business as timely and easily as possible. For our camping trips we provide a composting toilet with a privacy structure, so you don't have to go in the woods.

Grilling at Camp using the All-In-One Cast Iron Grill by Barebones

Here I use the cast iron grill by Barebones for the first time to grill pork chops, portabella mushroom, zucchini and foiled vegetables. Besides using it as the grill that day, I made a upside down cake, that turned out great. Prior I have done stir fry over the fire twice, easy and relatively fast.

Hiking and Exploring the Raven Caves in Sedona Arizona

Our last stop on the way out of Sedona, just off the 179 south of Sedona is a small parking area where we begin our really short hike to the Raven Caves. These caves are a network of small cavities overlooking Oak Creek just south of Sedona. Though they look small at first, if you keep going through the passageways, you’ll discover there’s a lot more to see than appears at first glance. Inside required ducking and stepping over obstacles. There are some drop offs to the left that I recommend exercising caution, not a good cave for young children. We passed through several passages with some having windows with a view of the Sedona landscape. Also while in Sedona we stayed at Los Abrigados Resort that is right on Oak Creek. We enjoyed beer and food at the Oak Creek Brewery and also enjoyed eating at the Thai Spices and The Hudson. Shopped at Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village. Hiked the west fork trail for the first time, one of the best hikes in Sedona. We also hiked to the Seven Sacred Pools, upon our return to our vehicle we got hailed on. The last night of our seven day stay we enjoyed the sunset at the Sedona Airport Scenic Lookout, then did a night hike to the Airport Mesa.
