So on the second leg of my mini-vacation I wanted to go visit something peaceful and inspirational and what did I pick? Sedona Arizona! A place known for it's mountainous vortexes and indian spirituality. A place where people are inspired and great changes in life have been created...or so they say.
It was a beautiful trip but to sum it up-
-I got divebombed by a hummingbird that sounded like a 100 bees coming at me!
-I was stalked by that same bird for 2 days!
-There IS such a thing as bad Mexican food! (Personal revelation...)
-Went on a tour and was told to sniff leaves by the tour guide before walking up huge rocks to "feel" the vortex.
-Discovered you can get a buzz from high elevations and inhaling fresh sage!
-Didn't feel any sort of "Vortex"...But DID feel the effects of high elevation.
-Watched a crazy lady make out with a tree after sniffing the "sage" bush..VERY FUNNY see the video.
-Learned Sedona's mystery was "discovered/created" by some "psychic" lady who wrote a book about the power of the big rocks back in 1987...Before that book Sedona was just a tiny desert town with cool rock formations...
-While the place "looked" serene I discovered even a nice place like that had their share of car thieves- someone tried to break into my car while we were out "feeling the Vortex". LOL!!
Sedona and Jerome have done a great job with promoting two places where absolutely nothing is going on.
I think it's fucked up that 2 places that were built on the backs of prostitution (Jerome) and Indian history(Sedona) currently exist in total absence of either yet continue to profit off the memories of both.
The ghosts I could get over but seeing the Indian town with not one indian in sight made me sad, there were mostly blonde haired folks who owned shops everywhere that sold ONLY indian themed items.
Where the fuck are the indians? Oh yeah that's right...we ran them off...now you gotta hit a casino to see them. WTH!
Either way it was a beautiful sight to see the colors and the peaceful mountains and if you like hiking you should visit and avoid the Mexican Food!
