DAY 2 - Hit the Trail!
Breakfast was buffet and very limited. Half of it was sweet breads which left hard scrambled eggs, potatoes, fruit salad, and sausage, leaving even less choice for vegetarian. There was ketchup on the table, but it had sugar in it, too. We did manage to get some Tabasco sauce when we asked for it, and that helped the eggs. Compared to the breakfasts on all of the other tours, this selection was sad. Food: -1
After breakfast, we headed out on an off road jeep tour to explore the areas around Red Rock. The guides were friendly, and the ride was exciting At one point, we got out of the jeeps, and one of the guides shared local history with us. Here's a video clip to give you a taste: myvideos/sedonalore
After the ride, we were served a picnic lunch (that had vegetarian options on the selection menu); some of the folks stayed to play Horse Shoes and see some fancy roping, but most everyone walked the short distance back to town to begin the afternoon and evening "on our own".
On the way out to the excursion site, we drove by Disney's inspiration for Thunder Mountain Railroad.
