West Fork Subway Panorama
Towering Coconino sandstone cliffs narrow in the Subway on the West Fork of Oak Creek trail. This is the end of the improved trail 3.2 miles from the parking lot in Oak Creek Canyon. From here on, it's wading in the creek. The water in was absolutely freezing and painfully cold as I waded from dry spot to dry spot. The upside was an absence of other hikers and photographers giving me sole access to the area. I had a ball photographing as red maple leaves slowly floated by in this sublime canyon.
