I just came back from a day trip to Sedona, Arizona, one of the most beautiful spots in this country. Surrounded by red rocks, whirling vortexes and positive energy, I was able to spend the day hiking up Bell Rock. Although it’s wintertime, the temperature was perfect for hiking, not too hot, not too cold, and because of the season, the number of tourists was very low.
Bell Rock is one of the larger vortex sites in Sedona. Vortexes are concentrations of energy spiraling upward from the Earth. As you climb the rock, you can see tree trunks that are twisted, a visual sign that energy is present. Vortex sites are known to have physical and spiritual healing properties and there are a number of them present in Sedona. Whether or not you believe, you can certainly feel something is different in this part of the world.
As far as when to travel, summer has beautiful weather, but if you want to avoid the crowds, winter or early spring is perfect as you can experience more solitude and still have sunny skies. All you need is a light jacket and a water bladder or bottle and you are good to go.
