We are now safely back home in Atlanta. We had a great time on our backpacking trip and later in Sedona. The backpacking was all we hoped for, and our guide did a great job taking care of us. The food was good, the equipment perfect, and there was nothing that we needed that we didn't have. The campsite locations were spectacular and the solitude at Angel Basin was great. Our guide discussed the routes with us before we headed out, and based on her advice we elected to hike Reavis Ranch first, then back track to Angel Basin on the second day. the hike down and back to Angel Basin was pretty challenging for us so it sounds like this was a wise decision, since it sounds if the other route (Frogs Tanks) is even more difficult. Overall, it was just right and validated our assessment of where we thought we were in terms of conditioning. The only disappointment of the trip was the large amount of trash left at Angel Basin, especially in the woods above the campsite. Makes me want to return with some large Hefty bags and pack it all out., but there will always be those who spoil beautiful wilderness areas. We appreciate the experience, and would be happy to recommend your company to anyone, We would like to make it back to Arizona sometime also. Thanks again for everything.
