I went back to NAU to do more recruiting. Tracy had only been to Flagstaff once, so she came along. The weather was beautiful, the perfect balance of cold, light snow, and sunshine.
I was busy most of the time during the day but we had a couple wonderful dinners. I did take a morning off and we hiked the Heart Trail. It had snowed earlier in the week so as our elevation increased the snow got deeper. We made the 2000 ft vertical to the ridge but I was running later so we had to hurry back. We ended up cutting the switchbacks and went straight down the mountain. It was cold, but a lot of fun.
On the final day, we routed through Sedona. Tracy had never been, so we decided to park at the bridge and hike the Wilson Mt. Trail. We turned around about 1000 feet up the switchbacks on the plateau. The view was gorgeous.
