We usually take a day trip to Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon in the Fall. Sometimes we go there to hike, while other times we go for lunch. This year we went for lunch at Auberge Sedona. We had our dog, Ozzie, with us this time. Our table was along the Oak Creek with spectacular views. To Ozzie’s delight there was an abundance of squirrels nearby playfully leaping from one tree to the next! Once in a while they would rest on the rocks, which left Ozzie mesmerized.
It seems were came a little too early this year for Fall color, or maybe the trees were a little late in their seasonal changes! A little color was there, though so all was not lost!
Below, the dappled lighting really added to this scene.

Thes huge red boulders are common in Oak Creek.
Even though it was a bright and sunny day, the lighting really accentuates the colors in the stream.

This flower vase and glass of wine looked so pretty against the background.
