Day 125 – Call of the Canyon in Red Rock Country

Day 125 of Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Call of the Canyon Day Use Area

Today Petey and I started our Red Rock Country scenic drive toward Sedona.  We simply drove one mile south to Call of the Canyon Day Use Area and took a five mile hike on West Fork Trail.  Less than a quarter mile into Oak Creek Canyon are the ruins of the Mayhew Lodge constructed in the late 1800’s.  The oldest structure was built by “Bear” Howard, who earned his nickname by killing four bears armed with only a knife.
