I have got a couple of friends named Gary here in Sedona so I started to call them G1 and G2, respectively. 🙂
Two days ago, G1 took me to Red Tank Draw which is a tributary canyon in Wet Beaver Creek area about a half hour’s drive southeast of Sedona.
We hiked along the bottom of Red Tank Draw, which is bone dry at the time. It was a hot day; temperature reached mid 90 in the middle of the day. But curiosity kept us going for more than 4 hours. Along this dry creek, there are a number of petroglyph sites on the red cliffs of the canyon wall.
Later on I learned that out of all the rock arts around Sedona, Red Tank Draw is one of the least known, most remote, and difficult to find sites. Luckily G1 was there. At times like that, I’m always so grateful to have friends like G1 to lead the way.
