UNTOLD STORIES---part 4--SEDONA SACRED SPACES
SHAMAN'S CAVE---DEVIL'S BRIDGE----BUDDHA'S BEACH
Till you see this.
Turn right-----Yeah it's rugged but doable---Laurie chose to walk this part.
Go to the end of the road and note this trail. Follow it out to that hill---go around it clockwise.
Yes, its tricky and dangerous---if you fall, you will die---But hey---if it's your time---well....
You're almost there---carefully walk this narrow ledge
And Bingo---we are here---looking out this amazing natural window.
And this natural opening with a splendid view.
Laurie is much at home in holy places---absorbing it's sacredness---
Remains of previous incense fires.
Laurie on the edge of things---scares me.
And on the Devil's bridge---we hiked to another day. Also a Sedona sacred spot.
As is this one----Oak Creek---beautiful
And celebrated with thousands of rock cairns like these.
And these! A quaint and harmless way to participate---I made one myself. I enjoy things like this----and shoe trees---invitations to join in---feel a part of something bigger.
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: I don't know if there really are "energy vortexes"---Holy places---will try to keep my mind open---enjoy the loveliness of Red rock country---respect the feelings of the million new age believers who come here for inspiration and connection. Of all the religions, it may be the least harmful----and so many of my friends seem nourished by its practices that I give this one a mental "pass"---till I can come up with a better one.
