Very easy, fun hike up the mountain. Came across at least 6 very annoying sheriffs, who each gave me a load for starting the hike at 7 PM. My response was: it's blazing hot during the day, and I have a headlamp! From their perspective, I'm sure if I was constantly rescuing unprepared hikers in Sedona, I'd be lecturing too. It was still a really fun hike!
