Sedona is full of mystique and has a strong spiritual presence. Native Americans made this area of Sedona home thousands of years ago, where vortexes exist as centers of energy that promote healing, meditation and self-exploration. In this post, I’ll give you the info you need to hike Boynton Canyon Trail and some tours you can take if you want to explore Native American ruins.
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.
