New Age thinkers interested in basking in the radiance of swirling spiritual energy come from all over the world to experience the vortexes of Sedona. So what is a vortex anyway? People witness vortexes all the time, in the swirling of whirlpools and the twirling of dust devils. Instead of vortexes of water and air, it is believed that vortexes of spiritual energy spiral away from some particular alignments in the red rocks rising from the earth. Cathedral Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Bell Rock are among the most famous sites for experiencing vortexes. read more about Energy Vortexes

A trip to Sedona would not be complete without a day spent bumming around Oak Creek Canyon. Traveling from Flagstaff to Sedona, Ponderosa pines give way to Sedona's signature red rocks in this breathtaking canyon. A quick stop at the Oak Creek Canyon Vista Lookout is worth a few wide-angle lens photos before driving down the winding switchbacks. Once the road levels out, most visitors tour the canyon by foot; hiking along Oak Creek, there are plenty of opportunities for fishing, swimming, and gazing at the towering cliffs in all directions. read more about Oak Creek Canyon

Palatki, which is Hopi for "red house," is known as one of the most preserved pictograph sites in the area. In addition to this two story cliff dwelling, there is an easy, well-marked trail that will lead visitors to a series of rock alcoves where pictographs were drawn 3,000 to 6,000 years ago. From Sedona, it takes roughly 15 minutes to get to the site and takes about an hour or two to see. From 89A go north on Red Canyon Rd. It will turn into Forest Road 525 (remember this spot if you want to continue down the road to see the Honanki Ruins). Veer right onto Forest Road 595, and then follow the signs to the parking lot. Visitors will need a Red Rocks Pass in order to park, which is available for purchase at the site. Keep in mind that reservations are required (just call ahead) and the site closes every day at 3PM. read more about Palatki
