I took a trip down to Sedona this weekend, what a place! By far one of the most beautiful locations I've been. Elaina Love, our wonderful tour guide, started at Chapel of the Holy Cross which is a surreal church built into the Sedona mountain side, she then lead us on a hike up Cathedral Rock, followed by a high vibrational lunch at The Chocolate Tree which included the most amazing raw chocolate made by Jeffery Botticelli with 100 year old tea leaves ... we were wired afterward as they were unlike any chocolate I've had before. We stopped at a gem shop then off for a quick walk to check out a vortex and finally made our way to Harding Spring to bottle our own water, it was clean, crystal clear and delicious. What was most amazing (other than all that awesome stuff mentioned above) was how the surroundings totally changed over a two hour ride from Scottsdale. From scorching heat and cactus to giant red rock buttes with lush green forest to white mountains, pine trees and chilly temperatures by the spring. It really was fantastic. By the time I got back to the house I was on sensory overload and needed a long walk under the full harvest moon to relax. I highly recommend spending time in Sedona if you have the chance, it's very special. I've included lots of links above, click on all the purple words for more pictures and info!
