We were so excited to hear that West Fork was open. After a devastating fire last spring, photographers feared that they had lost one of the best photo and hiking opportunities in central Arizona. We share our first look at what it looks like today as seven photographers hiked along the creek amidst a spectacular presentation of fall color in Oak Creek Canyon. Enjoy this rather long post . . . just so many great images!! We hope that you might make it real soon to capture your own images of the West Fork Trail at its most colorful.
Whew! You should be tired by now! We returned to the trailhead, ate our lunch at a convenient picnic table and then headed home. Am grateful that the fire damage, while extensive, was not worse. And, there are signs of nature's recovery everywhere. Thanks for joining us.
