The Sedona area is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in the world. The red rocks matched with the turquoise blue sky leaves one with a sense of wonderment.

The spiritual significance of the area combined with the vortexes in the area lead the ancients to believe the area was too sacred for human habitation, thus they only came here for spiritual ceremonies.

The ancients believe a vortex is  a place where energy emits from the earth and thus makes contact with other dimensions and life forms  easier to accomplish.

Each specific vortex has a special significance to them and obviously courthouse Butte was deemed a place of judgement. They came here to be  judged by their Gods. Although not one of the four accepted major vortices, with many smaller sites in the area, Courthouse Butte remains a small and important vortex in its own right.

Hiking trails are abundant in the area and provides an opportunity for the hiker to observe the mountain and surrounding area from various locations and vantage points.

Be sure to bring your camera and plenty of storage space, as opportunity abounds to take that perfect postcard photo. It’s neighbor to the west, Bell Rock has been designated a UFO landing site, so, you never know.
