The first trip of the year was to Slide Rock State Park in Sedona. French teacher Richard Hodgson has been the club’s faculty advisor for 12 years.

“A lot of our students don’t get the opportunities to be in some of these areas in the state that are beautiful,” said Hodgson.

Club members were amazed at seeing the red rocks when they arrived at the state park. Everyone took out their phones to take pictures and started talking to each other about what it would be like climbing the moun- tains. Junior Lizet Isais believes more students should join the Wilderness Club and have a great time like she did.

“It’s a fun experience,” she said. “I really recommend everyone (make) at least one trip.”

Sedona’s red rocks form the ultimate water slide. Algae on the rocks creates a slippery ride. This popular destination has a lot to offer visitors like hiking, explora- tion, and swimming. The famous Sedona Red Rocks are formed by a layer of rock known as the Schnebly Hill Formation. This thick layer of red to orange-colored sandstone is only found in the Sedona area.

“It’s worth it,” said junior Jailene Terranzas. “It’s really fun, but the water is cold.”
