Where I stayed
Admittedly, it helped that Emily and I were guests of my sister and that she always travels first class. But I have been to Sedona three times before this in humbler circumstances and still felt the strong pull of magic here. If you haven't been, you owe it to yourself to go. I guarantee you will love it,
This time, I was able to see Sedona in a new way, thanks to the hot air balloon ride and jeep tour that Pat had arranged. This was the first time that Emily and I had been on a hot air balloon ride and we loved it, despite (or because of?) a rocky landing. Normally, you land in 2-3 mph winds, but we landed in a 10 mph gust that dragged our gondola through bushes before landing
The Jeep ride (with Pink Jeep Tours) the next day was adventurous in a different way. We rode into national forest land over a route that went over huge slabs and boulders of rock. It was like a roller coaster ride, but with the added bonus of fantastic scenery. A great way to see the wilder side of Sedona.
Our resort, the Enchantment, is set in Boynton Canyon and we had a great view of part of the canyon from our casita balcony. Emily and I hiked part of the canyon to the area where an energy vortex has been identified. Unfortunately, the wind was so strong, that it was hard to perceive any change in energy there. But I felt great for hiking in such a scenic location.
We also did our fair share of shopping and dining in Sedona, which is well known for both.
Too soon it was time to leave the magic -- but I (with Jim) will be back!!
p.s. Not sure what a vortex is? See http://gosw.about.com/od/sedonaarizona/a/sedonavortex.htm
