Sedona is as interesting as it is breathtakingly beautiful. This charming city is famous for its breathtaking red rocks and laid-back atmosphere, and if you are
driving to Grand Canyon you should make it a point to drive through Sedona. By itself Sedona has lot of interesting places to see and experience, but if you are short of time, then a drive through this place is worth to get a feel of this beautiful place.
This route is a little round about way of reaching Grand Canyon, but if you want to see Sedona you might as well take the slightly longer route.

It was simply awesome
Oak Creek Canyon — in Sedona Arizona
I wish we had the time to jump into the water like those peopleThe town looks pretty surrounded by large red and white sandstone cliffs and buttes, with contrasting greenery provided by a mixture of trees, bushes and cacti.
Look at the rock formations, they seem to glow in brilliant orange and red against the sun.
I would have loved to spend some relaxing time at that house on top o f the hill with the most beautiful view. Just look at the road below.. However, all this would have been possible if we had the time. Since we had limited time at our disposal, such things were not possible. But thanks to our son we could at least have some fleeting glimpse of this beautiful place.Many artists have been attracted to Sedona and its rugged beauty which is said to enhance their creativity. Over the years, an artist colony has developed in Sedona and many of the artists sell their work in local galleries and shops. It may have been more than the scenic red rocks that stimulated the creativity of artists.
It is believed by many people that the region of Sedona contains a concentration of vortexes which are spots that release psychic energy or power from the Earth. The four local points which are considered to be energy vortexes are Bell Rock, Table Top Mountain, Cathedral Rock and Boynton Canyon. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit any of these places for we were just driving through this place, and just stopped at some shops, had a shock, when we saw the prices, though I did manage to buy an antique necklace and a pair of earrings to go with it.

The combination of mysticism and red-rock majesty attracts a lot of people to Sedona
The colors were truly mesmerising

Sedona's Red Rocks are also considered to be some of the most spiritually charged RocksI wish i had the time to experience at least some of it, maybe some day who knows...
Vortex sites are believed to be locations having energy flow that exists on multiple dimensions. The energy of the vortexes interacts with a person’s inner self. It is not easily explained. Obviously it must be experienced.
I saw quite a few Reiki Studios there, obviously it was most suited for the practice of Reiki, meditation and Yoga.

This has become more or less a photo blog. However, I am sure you would love them. This was part of our US road trip which we had taken some 3 years ago.
Travelling by car is the best way to see the US. We can always take such detours and see the less known places on the way.
