Making Wishes in Sedona

cathedral rockOn our trip to Sedona we did a hike to Cathedral Rock  just before dusk. All along the way people had built these stone cairns of different shapes and sizes.

This energy is said to strengthen people’s spirit. Cathedral Rock is designated as one of those vortex sites. Perhaps because some people recognize the spiritual energy of the area they have built cairns to mark their visit there. I assumed that each represented the hopes and dreams of those who built them.
