Shadows of Sedona / Scott August
I’ve been to Sedona on and off since the early 70’s.
On my first visit I hiked up to Cathedral Rock.
There were no trails or pathways going up there in those days.
And no people.
I enjoyed a moment of pure solitude. That evening I swam at Oak Creek Crossing as the sun set.
Native ladies and their children came down to sit on the rocks to enjoy a serene twilight.
It was truly a magical moment and a once in a lifetime experience.
I was One with them.
Sedona is not the sleepy secret it used to be,
but I hope there is still some solitude and peace to be found here.
