Sedona, Arizona.

Not my photos, but they make me want to visit! Anyone been to Sedona? How was it? I've been to Phoenix, Flagstaff, The Grand Canyon, many great places in New Mexico... but have never been to Sedona for some reason. I'd like to take a full week to ten days sometime to just alternate hiking around and photographing the beautiful scenery (and seeing if I can bend a spoon or pick up the frequency of any energy vortices :)), and relaxing in the spas that are all over the places, getting a massage, mud bath, ending with a nice dinner, and sleeping like a log. Ahhh.....

Thanks to the anonymous owners of these pics I got from Google Images. I'd credit you if I could! Also, I confess this is partially a demonstration of what a more flexible blog backbone could allow....large, amazing photos like this and larger videos as well than the old Meta-Plane could ever accommodate.

Sedona is very beautiful.

Ooh, yes please. And, I like these new larger photos very much.

WOW! And yeah, a trip to a spa would be lovely if there was a backdrop like the scenery in those pictures.

Ditto Raelha on the new pics. (of course my new monitor might have a little to do with it too...)

Sedona is beautiful like billybyte said, but take a suitcase of money with you if you want to get the most out of it (spas). I agree the photos make a nice difference. That first one in particular is gorgeous. Much of the SW is incredible and the Grand Canyon is just one of the many sites to behold - in the long-shadow times especially.

I'd love for you to show some photos of Mesa Verde, etc. American Indians (Native Americans) and the Old West, holding a fascination for some of our friends around the world, would be a nice post. I've been to Tombstone for one, and though it's a tourist spot now places like that really did exist with people like Jesse James - it was really Wild during the westward expansion...gunslingers, robbing banks, stagecoaches full of money and passengers on their way to the new town of San Francisco or just a new place to call home - more opportunities for families to homestead and have a lot of land for the claiming of it. Little House on the Prairie - that stuff was real. Explorers like Lewis and Clark opened the way, drew maps and people followed their paths and others - and now look at what California is! There's so much - all the Native American tribes - their names, where they lived, what they ate, how they survived or didn't - you know - our history - though not thousands of years, but how much happened in just a few hundred.....might be of interest to some of you who haven't been here or have only seen the pop culture now. So much of our history is hidden in "ghost" towns. Maybe I, Hans the Katzenjammer Kid, will do a new post soon about an Indian tribe or two.

Cherokee Prayer Blessing

May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.

Meta is part Cherokee

Yep, it's true. Thanks Hans, and what a great idea for a post! If you do one I promise I will too. Some aspect of America's past - whether it's about the ones who came 10,000 years ago, 500 years ago, 100 years ago, or are sneaking in at the moment. ;)

I think I'll do a little scientific piece on the original human settlers if you don't mind - you can have any other topic! The Anasazi at Mesa Verde and Chaco Canyon would be interesting... Or tales of the Wild West... The gunfight at the OK Corral... Lewis and Clark and Sacajawea...

Thanks for the comments.
