A Bridge too Far

3 April 2020

One of the most popular hikes in Sedona is the 5.8 mile loop to Devil’s bridge, a natural bridge in the Red Rock State Park formed through years of erosion.  Dean assured me that it was perfectly safe so we bundled up the kids for the leisurely trip to the bridge.  After vowing that I wouldn’t step foot on the bridge (due to a fear of heights) I plucked up the courage – after watching others step out without fear.  So long as I ignored the fact that it was a sheer drop on each side it was really not too bad.  The bridge itself is quite wide for the most part, so not too dangerous, but it’s funny how the risk of certain death can make a wide trail suddenly feel quite unstable!

  2. Hi Bryce.

    We have been doing what we can, although a lot of things are closed or closing down. This trail closed the following day (so we were lucky to do it when we did). It’s a shame as there weren’t too many people on the trail and everyone was doing their best to maintain social distancing..

  3. Hi Debbie
    Glad to see you are still alive and well. Timing sucks but glad to hear you are making the most of what you can
    Take care and stay safe xx

  4. Hi Debbie,

    What a cool picture and good on you for facing your fear. Hope the Covid-19 situation hasn’t affected your exploration to much. How is RV life? Is it what you expected it would be? Assume you’ve driven the RV too, how was that? Safe travels and stay well. Look forward to seeing your next round of pictures and travel commentary.

  5. Hi Debbie,
    I hope you all are ok wherever you are. I’ve been thinking on you in the last months.
    Take care!

Unless you have a HIGH clearance 4WD vehicle, suggest you park your vehicle at the trailhead and hike to Devil’s bridge.
