I left what was holding me back on the trails of Boynton Canyon. No pictures will ever do this beautiful place justice. You'll just have to make the trek.

Not sure I experienced any feeling from the associated vortex but the hike was enjoyable and despite people being in the area, there were periods of profound silence which was enjoyable. The views were lovely.

This is another must-do scenic drive if you are in the Sedona area. Every turn has more beautiful views of the red rocks. This drive is a bit more out of central Sedona, but offers plentiful places to stop and take pics.

Beautiful scenery. The trail was not difficult and was probably my favorite trail. Definitely do this trail when in Sedona.

The trail is 6 miles round trip and uphill but the vortex is not far from the parking and can be reached easily in 10-15 min. The views are gorgeous.

My husband and I spent a day hiking in Boynton canyon. It is amazing. Definitely recommend spending time here to unplug.

If you go there during a national holiday, there is no fee to park. The same is true for any national park. However, the airport mesa parking fee will still be $3.00 no matter what day you go.
