Quote: My mother and I headed out of Los Angeles one May day in search of the famous Red Rocks of Sedona Arizona. We had also heard of the many energy votexes that one could visit for some quiet meditation.

Red Rocks of Arizona

Overview

Quote:
The best things to do are find the trails and hike to the vortexs. Also the jeep tours are a blast, but not recommended for people with bad backs. If you have loads of money, go on a bi-plane ride through the big red rock formations. There are many art gallerys to explore and spa treatments to be discovered. The old ghost town of Jerome up in the hills is a great day trip. Check out the Asylum Restaurant. Definitely find a vortex and take in the view.

Quick Tips:

Check the weather, as it is HOT in the summer.

Best Way To Get Around:

The best way to get around is by car or walking. It depends what part of town you are staying in.

Great local place, especially for breakfast after an early mornning hike. Their breakfast are the best and they also have a cute gift shop. The place gets crowded, but the wait time is not too bad. It's a local diner with terrific food.

Bell Rock is one of the many red rock formations in Sedona. It also has a vortex. This is a great place to really get the feeling of Sedona. Try and go at sunset or sunrise, the colours become so much richer. You can park on the side of the road off Hwy 179. Make sure you have your parking pass. There are many well worn trails to take around the perimeter or climbing straight up. Or one could just sit on the smooth red rocks and do nothing. I went at 8am on a Hot June Mornning during a heat wave.Ugh. I decided to just pick my way up to the top, weaving and jumping from rock to rock. I knew I wanted to get as high up on the Bell as I could and possibly find the Vortex. So off I climbed. I...Read More

While in the area of Sedona I would also recommend going up to Oak Creek Canyon. Take 89A toward Flagstaff. The drive is gorgeous. Stop along the way and hike down to the creek. The trees and rambling river offer lots of great photo taking. Or take a dip in the cool water, depending on the time of year. there are some nic eswimming holes. Check out Indian Gardens and buy some Kettle Corn. Another enjoyable day trip would be out to the ghost town of Jerome. Its about an hour away, that is, taking the backroads. The town is way up on a hill. Its a former mining town that now hosts local artists. Go all the way up past Jerome and find The Asylum. Its a cool old hotel and restaurant that at one ti...Read More
