Today I’m going to share a video compilation that I threw together. It documents the road trip to Sedona, Arizona that my dorky younger brother London, my boyfriend Joey, and I went on over Thanksgiving Break.
Sedona is a small town nestled between beautiful red-rock cliffs. It’s famous for being one of the world’s hotspots for UFO sightings and known for having many energy centers called vortexes. People travel from all over the world to meditate on top of the vortexes, go alien “hunting”, receive psychic readings, and strengthen their spirituality – it’s a New-Age mecca. Sedona also has a rich history, with Native American rock dwellings left over from centuries of indigenous people settling the area. You can also view many pictographs, some dating back to 6,000 years ago. And don’t even get me started on the incredible hiking and mountain biking opportunites available!
Almost 6 years ago, my dad took me and my brother on a huge month long road trip through Utah and Nevada, down to LA, and then back up through Arizona. By what seemed like fate, we ended up staying the night at a hotel in Sedona for free. My brother and I were enthralled by the beauty, mystery, and magic surrounding the town and ever since that trip we’ve gone back to visit every year. Whether you believe it’s the extraterrestrials, the subtle energy flowing from the vortexes, or the astounding natural beauty, something has been drawing people to the area for thousands of years.
