City of Sedona, Arizona


City of Sedona, Arizona


Sedona is the perfect place not only for outdoor adventure, but also for inner self-exploration and healing.

Prior to visiting the majestic place, I had no idea of the city’s mystery. I went there for another nature trip and nothing more. I did not expect to experience the energy and connection with the mountains, specifically the Cathedral Rock vortex.

Getting There

After visiting the Grand Canyon, we spent the night at Flagstaff, Arizona.To reach Sedona coming from Flagstaff, we took a spectacular route down Oak Creek Canyon via Highway 89A.

The route showcased incredible views, but be sure to drive carefully!

Landscape

Once you reach the city of Sedona, you will be nestled amidst stunning red sandstone formations!

Sedona offers activities for spiritual pursuits, and adventures such as hiking, mountain biking, and off-roading. For more information, visit their site here.

The landscape was surreal. Canyons, creeks, mountains, forests, and spiritual vortexes surround the area.

Vortices

What attracts spiritual seekers are the five New Age Vortices found in Sedona. The vortices are said to radiate the Earth’s power and are located at Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Schnebly Hill.

Chapel of the Holy Cross

Another famous attraction is the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Coming from a Catholic background, this is one of the highlights of my trip.

The chapel rises 70 feet out of a 1000-foot redrock cliff.

Still visit the chapel even if you’re not Catholic. You will be stunned by the views from above.

The park was unfortunately closed during our visit, but this is one of the main attractions at Sedona. Check updates and read more from the park here.
