Ranney revisits Mt. Kilimanjaro

Growing old is something everyone must face but it doesn’t mean it slows you down. At least, that’s what Wayne Ranney set out to prove. Ranney was speaking to the Sedona Welcomers...

In everyday life, social encounters are usually a good thing. But in an area of Soldier Pass, the U.S. Forest Service has deemed social encounters — specifically those involving Jeeps and hikers — to be a problem.

Interaction between hikers and Jeeps has become a concern for the U.S. Forest Service, which is studying what to do about the problem.Soldier Pass, which is located in the general area just east of Coffee Pot Rock, is a popular destination for hikers because of its many popular features including Devil’s Kitchen, the 7 Sacred Pools and views of three arches. It is also a favorite of locals because its trailhead is located in a West Sedona neighborhood.

However, the area is also a popular destination — for all the same reasons — for one local Jeep touring company which owns the exclusive rights to the area and schedules several trips to it daily. The problem is parts of the hiking trail intersect with parts of the Jeep road, causing unwanted “encounters” to occur.

For the full story, see the Friday, Jan. 25, edition of the Sedona Red Rock News.
