Hike Boyton Canyon to Explore Mystical Native American Ruins
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, Miguel, who is a guide for Native American sites all throughout Sedona. Boyton Canyon is beautiful on it's own, but we scrambled off-trail and high onto the mountains to see some really special ruins. At times we were wandering on cliffs edges and up steep slippery paths, so I only recommend doing this if you have good balance and experience hiking and/or rock scrambling. Also wear shoes with good traction. In each of the sacred sites, our guide played the drums and flute for us inside the quiet coves. Sedona and it's residents have a way with slowing down and enjoying the silent moments to energize the soul and meditate. It was lovely to sit inside these ancient sites looking over all the beautiful red-hued mountains.
