Bandelier National Monument
It’s hard to tell in this photo, but essentially this is a cliff dwelling, where the Ancestral Pueblo people lived.  They carved into the porous volcanic rocks to construct rooms used for sleeping, cooking, and storing food.  The Ancestral Pueblo people hunted the land for game, such as bison, deer, rabbit, but mainly they were farmers, relying on rains for successful crops.  As the region fell into a drought, these dwellings were abandoned for better water resources along the Rio Grande sometime around 1550AD.

bell rock in Sedona

The red rock formations of Sedona are stunning to behold, but there is much more depth to the rocks than meets the eye.  There are special spiritual vortexes that exist in Sedona.  These energy centers are located around Sedona, and can be more intense at the actual site of each vortex (4 main vortexes in Sedona) where a person may feel uplifted, inspired, or a strong positive sensation.

The above is Bell Rock, where the “balance” of masculine and feminine vortex is located.  I’m not sure if it was the vortexes I felt, but in a place so beautiful, how can you not feel good??
