Sedona is known for its cluster of vortexes (vortices?), or sites of energy concentration. Those who come to Boynton Canyon may seek the Kachina Woman or the spires. Bryon and I were not so ambitious: we pointed to the red rocks in the distance and decided, “Let’s go that way.”
At the start of the hike, we crossed a dry creek bed. During summer monsoons, this could flood.
Desert plants coexist with pine, even in the snow.
As we headed up the mountain we could see the sandstone layers of the mesa.
Is the Kachina Woman here? We don’t see her.
- Small stone formations mark the path to follow. I don’t know who built them.
One of the neighbors came through. Deer perhaps?
