Throwback Thursday: Sedona 2009

s1Continuing on with places visited from our road trip of 2009, I now bring you another part of Arizona — Sedona. This state is so full of stunning scenery that it’s almost unfair.

What originally brought us to Sedona was finding out about these vortexes, or ley lines of magnetic energy that apparently abound in this area. I didn’t feel an ounce of this energy, but I was blown away by the view.

We also visited Montezuma Castle National Monument — cliff-dwellings erected by Pre-Columbian Sinagua¬†people around 700 AD. When this site was discovered by European Americans in the mid-1800s, it was assumed that the site was established by the Aztec emperor Montezuma, hence the name. Well, the Europeans were wrong as the buildings actually predate Montezuma himself. The cliff-dwellings form a series of rooms that can be compared to a modern-day apartment building. You don’t really get this impression from the ground, but we learned that the structure actually consists of five stories. I felt more energy here than I did at the vortexes. This ancient site is full of wonder.
