Crimson maples and yellow Gambel oak will line the steep sandstone walls of Oak Creek Canyon.  Beautiful reflections along streams mirror the sun scrolling down the orange canyon walls.  Yucca, ocotillo and prickly pear cactus grow in the vibrant desert, providing terrific macro photography opportunities.
