Oak Creek

oak creek, originally uploaded by Thee E. Aldriches.
From the reverse of the postcard:
"FAMOUS OAK CREEK CANYON SWITCHBACK ROAD - this picture shows only the 21/2 mile portion of U.S. Hwy. 89 Alternate halfway between Flagstaff and Sedona in which the most precipitous and spectacular climb takes place. In this short distance our snake-like winding road drops 1,000 feet from the viewpoint at the head of Oak Creek Canyon to the bridge over the Pump House Wash almost directly below!"

Erin and I took some photographs over Oak Creek awhile back and this one was featured in the Sierra Club's Daily Ray of Hope. The Daily Ray of Hope is a simple e-mail newsletter that the Sierra Club sends out every weekday with a photograph and an inspirational quote. You can submit your pictures to be featured in the DRH on their Flickr group page. They've chosen our photos a couple times now and other subscribers always send you nice e-mails. It's a feel-good sort of thing.

Here's a few more of our Oak Creek shots:
