Indian Gardens in a cute little cafe near Oak Creek Canyon, even more north of uptown Sedona. It's got the southwest chill vibe and a large back patio that's surrounded by gorgeous trees and mountains. The breakfast burritos are the best, iced chai lattes are fab, and their hot sauce is so good I stocked up on three bottles to bring back home with me to L.A. Add this to your itinerary if you're looking for a great outdoor ambiance and delicious eats in Sedona.
Sedona is full of mystic and has a strong spiritual essence. We had the wonderful opportunity to led through Boyton Canyon by a friend of a friend who is a guide for Native American sites all throughout Sedona.
Riding ATVs or buggy's through the Sedona wilderness is exhilarating. The first trail led us to Palatki, site of Indian ruins and pictographs etched into the red rock walls. We moved along to Boynton Pass, where we zoomed through the colorful canyons, red rock pinnacles, and high mountains.
Amazingly, there is a gorgeous 3 mile loop right next to Sedona’s airport. During this hike you can see the Red Rocks from the north, opposite the view from Bell Rock. As the sun set it blanketed the mountains in soft light and the cactus needles radiantly glowed.
Our visit to Sedona was a much needed escape from the big bad city and into such a beautiful and calming environment. We explored and meditated, rode ATVs and attended a shaman breathworks ceremony. It was an eye opening experience in a magical and mystical city filled with red rocks.
