... a safer perspective.
The whole two hour tour was superb. What an adrenaline rush!
On the last really steep descent which was basically a rocky staircase which she carefully bumped us down one rock at a time, I casually and facetioulsy said to Kate who was sitting in the favoured passenger seat in the front next to the driver, "After this you should feel OK with my driving..." to which she replied, "Oh, no. I feel totally safe with Sindy."
... of the vortex. Along the trail, we saw stacks of prayer rocks, either alone or in groupings, that looked a lot like inukshuks to us. :)
Well, we walked and walked and walked, and climbed and climbed. We saw people who told us the end of the trail was about 1/2 hour away, and 1/2 hour later, we saw different people who told us the end was about 1/2 hour away. It gets dark here at 5:45 pm, so we had to be careful not to hike in too far and end ...
... but none like this. They definitely came in handy though!
After the trail i went into Sedona to my motel. Sedona seems to be a really an interesting little city. I saw some pretty swanky houses that looked like huge pueblos. They had to be pricy. I'm sure there are plenty of athletes,execs and celebs that have houses somewhere in these hills. I ate a nice dinner at a local restaurant then retired to get ready for another action packed day tomorrow!
Albuquerque was already in our rearview by 8 am. Once we left the urban corridor of Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico became totally rural and desert. Most of the communities were about 500 total population, and the poverty levels seemed high. With near-constant sunshine and low rents, the laid-back vibe of New Mexico is a pretty defining feature. This set the tone for our day, and we took advantage by taking more time to investigate roadside ...
... got ridiculously hot.
During the time of driving, and whilst we were all shattered, Micah researched the weather, and found that it was likely to have flash floods over the night we planned to camp. So when we got there, had to basically make a decision whether to do the 10 mile trek to the campsite or not. As usual, going in blind, I said id be happy to hike in and out in one day, despite all the signs saying no one day hikes allowed at all. In the end, we mutually agreed it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Boots and Saddles Sedona
They are such gracious hosts. They really go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and at home.
Best place we've ever stayed!
My husband & I, as well as two other couples stayed at Boot & Saddles in early December. I have to say that it was undoubtedly THE BEST place we have ever stayed! Sam & Irith were so friendly, welcoming & helpful even before we arrived! They go out of their way to make your stay the most relaxing & fabulous time. The rooms are exquisite; spotless, comfortable, beautifully decorated and are filled with many extra touches. Each room has a different decor & feel. We have never slept so well. I'm sure it had a great deal to do with their custom bedding, those wonderful robes and ofcourse the peaceful setting!! A true hide-away! Great food, GREAT people, great place. I would recommend this inn to anyone visiting Sedona. It's the only place to stay! I can't wait to go back again!
We had visited Sedona before, but now we know how to do it right! Irith greeted us very warmly, and it was immediatley apparent that she and Sam wanted us to have the best possible visit. Every day we took thier suggestions about where to go and what to eat, and every experience was perfect.
The proprietors of Boots and Saddles, Irith and Sam, are the true jewels of a stay in Sedona. In Sedona, homes and businesses are built in clusters of development, but when you enter BnS, it's like stepping into a remote hideaway. The view of Thundermountain is awesome. You'll love slipping into the hottub at night after a day's hike, sipping wine and gazing at a blanket of stars above, feeling like the rest of the world is miles away. Each room is beautifully decorated with Irith's perfect touch for creating a true southwestern feel and romantic ambience, yet luxurious! Sam's daily gourmet breakfasts are a gastronomic event, and no matter how long your stay, you'll never be served the same dish twice! There are sweet treats tucked in every room for your noshing pleasure, and every afternoon delicious lemonade and different munchies are in the guests' dining/living room to tide you over until you head out for dinner. Sam and Irith are charming, funny and wholly devoted to ensuring your stay becomes one of the most special memories of your life. It certainly was for us. And they know all the secret tips and advice to ensure you enjoy the best trails, the best restaurants, and the best shopping. For example, they gave us the insider's scoop on the best way in to see the Grand Canyon that allowed us to by-pass the crowds, giving us a great fun day of touring the sights rather than sitting for hours on end in long lines of tourist traffic and fighting to find parking. They can save you tremendous grief by steering you to the best values and best experiences--even get you a discount here and there. My husband and I wished we had time for every jeep trip and trail hike, but there is only so much you can fit into a week. All we had to do was tell Sam and Irith what kind of experiences we were seeking, and they told us which trails and trips would best deliver the fun we wanted--and they were dead on right every time!
Sedona is one of our favorite destinations for relaxation, art, dining, and culture. Although we usually stay at upscale hotels, we decided to try our luck at a bed and breakfast. BOY DID WE MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION!! Boots and Saddles exceeded every expectation that we had. Our charming host, Sam Raz, met us upon arrival and we immediately bonded with this charming, witty, and exceptionally knowledeable proprietor. He provided us with in-depth details of hiking trails, restaurants, and other attractions. He then led us to our room, and quite frankly, it blew us away! The decor and ambiance were everything we had imagined and more!
Boots and Saddles is the best
My husband and I spent 6 nights at Boots and Saddles the first of June. It was our first B&B experience. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. We stayed in the Gentleman Cowboy room and were very impressed. The room is large and very well appointed. Everything you could possibly need has been thought of and included in the room. We loved the oversized jetted tub. The view from the room is nothing short of breath taking. I can't say enough about Sam and Irith. Wonderful hosts. Sam's breakfasts were always a delightful suprise and simply to die for.
You won't go wrong staying at Boots and Saddles. It made our Sedona experience a memorable one.
Love Boots and Saddles
Our stay at Boots&Saddles was wonderful and filled with personal touches. Everything from the wonderful hosts to the beautiful rooms was perfect. Sam and Irith do a great job making you feel like at hom while at the same time feel like you are on a once in a lifetime vacation. We would highly recommend Boots & Saddles.
Our Anniversary stay at Boots and Saddles
Thanks to Sam and Irith at The Boots and Saddles B&B, we had a magnificent time on our trip to Sedona. Sam and Irith are so friendly, and sincere, they became like close family in such a short time. Their welcome, and concern helped us realize very quickly that we made a good decision to stay there. Sam is very knowlegable of the area. He suggested some incredible restaurants, and made the reservations for us. After a fantastic breakfast, his morning suggestions for hiking trails and other activities helped us take the most advantage of our time. The rooms were great, and well decorated by Irith. The location was good becouse it was quiet, and close to everything..
Chris and I had a wonderful time at Boots & Saddles Bed & Breakfast. Irith and Sam are gracious and great to be around. They made our stay the best ever at a bed and breakfast. We began each day with a scrumptious homemade breakfast along with fun conversation. Our room was very clean and decorated beautifully with a spectacular view of the Red Rocks. Each afternoon a delicious snack was prepared. We could enjoy it in the main house or right in our room if we wanted. A teapot was left in our room to have a cup of tea or hot choclate which was nice after a day of hiking or sight seeing.Irith and Sam made our trip a terrific experience. They were friendly and sincere. We felt like part of the family. I would recommend Boots & Saddles to anyone who desires a great stay in Sedona. We will definitely return on our next journey to Sedona.Sincerely,Kathleen & Chris 12-28-03
My husband and I stayed at the Boots and Saddles B&B in West Sedona in early Oct 2003. I found this B&B through the internet and after talking with the owner booked three nights. Sam and his wife Irith do everything possible to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable..there is a two course breakfast every morning (including Sam's freshly baked bread which smelled heavenly while being baked )with snacks and beverages in the afternoon and Sam bakes his homemade oatmeal choc chip cookies fresh every evening. Sam is very willing to share his love of hiking and of Sedona and Irith, being an artist, gives great shopping advice. We were very pleased with our accomodations... luxury linens and fluffly bath towels, beautiful and understated decor; small little touches everywhere..makeup remover towels for the ladies; special soaps; loads of videos/books. There are also mountain bikes available. There are guests of every age group which is always fun and interesting. The B&B is in a commercial yet quiet area and has a hot tub in the back yard overlooking a gorgeous mountain..Sedona has a "light pollution" law so no unnecessary lights at night...which makes the stars just pop out. You can't go wrong staying here.
