Another must see was the Chapel of the Holy Cross, it's literally a church up on top of a rock and has gorgeous views!

We also went to visit one of the Vortexes. Vor what? Vortex. and what is it? I found a website while researching for our trip that explains vortexes pretty well. It's from John and Micki's metaphysical site and it also includes a map of all the vortexes within the Sedona area, to read more about it in general go to: http://www.lovesedona.com
They describe vortexes as "funnel shape created by a whirling fluid or by the motion of spiraling energy. Familiar examples of vortex shapes are whirlwinds, tornadoes, and water going down a drain. A Vortex can be made up of anything that flows, such as wind, water, or electricity." The website also takes about the vortexes specifically in Sedona and that they are "swirling centers of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth." You are supposed to feel energy at these sights. So, the dirty hippie in me had to go check out their vortexes.
They are 4 main vortex points in Sedona. I thought when we went up towards the airport, we were not close enough, turns out we were there! if you didn't see my first Sedona post click here. We did visit another one at Red Rock Crossing/Cathedral Rock, which happens to be the most photographed spot in Sedona. We went directly to the vortex site and sat around. I'm not sure it was the energy or if everyone that was there felt like they were supposed to be feeling something, but it was a happy little place to hang out for a while!

|the vortex was at a flat spot and I took a rest since we went there right after we drove back from the Grand Canyon|
|On the walking path, this little place was called Buddha Beach and had all these cute stacked rock formations|
|The red rocks are still amazing in black and white!|

on our way out of the park we realized we were at prime time to take pictures at sunset on our last night, so many people pulled over...this is our best shot and you can see the almost full moon to the left) Amazing how the red rocks are illuminated...such a beautiful place to be!
