We were warned not to take the RV down State Road 89a out of Flagstaff to Sedona because one section has many s-curves. The alternate route is south on I-17 then north on Highway 179 through Oak Creek. It was fine until we got to Sedona. There the road is a series of round-abouts. They are not easily negotiated with a 37-foot 5th wheel either. But we made it to the Elks' Lodge without too much heart failure.

Sedona is drop-dead gorgeous. The red rock formations are magnificent. And Sedona has vortexes, one just behind the Elks' Lodge. And what is a vortex? It's the funnel shape created by a whirling fluid or by the motion of spiraling energy. And Sedona has long been known as a spiritual power center because of the vortexes of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth located in the area. This energy is not exactly electricity or magnetism, although it does leave a slight residual magnetism in the places where it is strongest. There are four main energy vortexes in Sedona. The subtle energy that exists at these locations interacts with who a person is inside. It resonates with and strengthens the Inner Being of each person that comes within about a quarter mile of it. Well we came within a quarter mile of two of the vortexes. It didn't do too much for us, except give us some exercise hiking to them, but it sure messed with our GPS Hillary. Starting in Sedona she gave us some really strange directions to our destinations. And we are sad to say Hillary never recovered. She is replaced with Samantha.
