Situated at the southern end of the steep and narrow Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona was recently voted by USA Today as America's most beautiful city; after the Grand Canyon, it is the most visited location in Arizona. In this program we see why, visiting many of its predominant landmarks, including the internationally renowned Arts & Crafts Village, Tlaquepaque, which is authentically fashioned after a traditional Mexican village and means the "best of everything." Then to the Slide Rock State Park, what Life Magazine calls, "one of America's ten most beautiful swimming holes." Views from a helicopter reveal the magnificent beauty of Sedona, which too includes Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Coffee Pot Point, Chimney Rock and Boynton Canyon, one of the most scenic of the box canyons. Here we learn of "vortexes," which New Age mystics say is a sort of energy field emanating from the inner earth. Next we visit the historic Chapel of the Holy Cross, which is built directly into a red rock butte and offers spectacular views of the valley 200 feet below; then we travel into the Coconino National Forest to visit the Crescent Moon Ranch Cabin. 07/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
