Ty and Buster, Life with Dogs’ travel correspondents, take you for a hike in Sedona, Arizona.
Ty: When I heard we were heading to Sedona I had one thought …. spa time!
Buster: That’s not happening – but botox might not be a bad idea for you.
Ty: Hey Buster …
Buster: We came to Sedona to do some hiking!
Ty: You don’t have to sound so excited about it.
Buster: Don’t worry, buddy, we’ll go slow.
Buster: I’ve even found some trails that are just your speed. Bell Rock Pathway, Baldwin Trail, and Herkenham Trail are pretty easy and have nice scenery.
Ty: Listen, I can hang on the tough trails.
Buster: In that case, we can hit Turkey Creek Trail and Wilson Trail! In fact, there are only a few places in Coconino National Forest that we can’t go, and the rules are provided on their website.
Ty: It’s not that I couldn’t tackle those hikes, but altitude can be tough on dogs like me with short faces. At an elevation of 4,500 feet, we probably shouldn’t over do it.
Buster: Sure, Ty. And don’t forget that heat can kill people and dogs. Hiking when the temperatures are cooler is best, and we’ll load up my backpack with plenty of water.
Ty: Of course, we’ll also take plenty of time to rest.
We loved hiking in Sedona. What’s your favorite place to hike with your dogs?
