V = Vortexes: A to Z Blogging Challenge

   Vortexes, or energy centers, have brought an unexpected fame to the beautiful area around Sedona, Arizona. Many people report a strong uplifting experiences among the red rocks; especially Bell Rock.

Vortexes are formed by spiraling spiritual energy. It is believed the strength of the vortexes in Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon are unequaled in the United States if not the world.

Once an Old West town where many of the classic westerns were filmed Sedona took on a new feel with the entrance of New Age stores and numerous retreats. Some of the classic movies filmed here were "Angel and the Badman," "Blood on the Moon," "3:10 to Yuma" and "Stagecoach." Some of the stars who worked in the area were Errol Flynn, John Wayne, Joan Crawford, James Stewart and Elvis Presley.

Events held in the area are the Sedona International Film Festival, the Sedona Bluegrass Festival and the Sedona Jazz on the Rocks Festival.
