Labor weekend 9/1/12 – 9/2/12,  a trip to Sedona with my good friend Stefan.

Day 1: We went to Oak Creek, played in the water a lil and then we hiked a trail along side Oak Creek.  along the way we found some piles of rocks, this was actually our first time seeing something like that.  The rock pile is called a “cairn”, it’s used to mark a trail path or a place of significance.

We ended up at the backside of Cathedral Rock.  At the time I had not idea where we were, but that twisted Juniper tree I snapped a picture of kind of tipped me off.  I saw it an thought to myself, hurm, doesn’t that occur when a vortex is near by?…

It was quite beautiful up there.

Day 2: Went to the front side of Cathedral Rock and hiked up, the views were breathtaking! It’s a really steep hike and a bit intimidating, but there are actually foot holes so it was doable. Cathedral Rock is actually one of Sedona’s famous vortexes, it’s said to have a femine energy. The energy at this vortex strengthens the things you normally think of as feminine, such as kindness, compassion, patience, and the ability to let others need you and depend on you. It also, strengthens the ability to anticipate the impact of your actions before you act, which is what considerateness is all about.
