Roadtrip 2018 Fall: Vancouver - Yakima - Bend - Carson City - Lone Pine - Palm Desert - Sedona - Palm Desert - Paso Robles - Calistoga - Brookings - Yachats - Cannon Beach - Vancouver

Day 18 - Jim Thompson

Today's run-in features a wooded path that slopes rather gently up.

This is the widest trail we have been on yet - must have been an old road up to the known Bigfoot sites on the bench above.

This is an origami agave - it folds itself up at night to go to sleep.

Along the path we come across a smouldering ethereal section of desert.

Up on the benchland, the trees give way to scrub bushes. Ellie is nervous - she got a whiff of Bigfoot.

Bigfoot or not, the views are amazing.

Sedona City - from the heights.

Flora with an intricate vining and branching pattern.

It is getting close to sundown. The Bigfeet are warming up for their nightly romps.

"Oh no!!" exclaims Ella Odd Sock, "those late afternoon vortexes are rumbling again."

Not to be outdone by abstract agaves, the red rocks take a whack at surrealism.

Once again, we are the last ones out of the parking lot.
