Cathedral Rock prominently shown in many western movies of the fifties and sixties is the signature landmark of the area, close to seventy big budget westerns were filmed here during that era.
Many country and western stars, as well as others have filmed videos, photo shoots, and commercials.
It is also one of the four major vortexes in the area.
All the major vortexes have either a male or female energy, and Cathedral Rock is female.
The vortex is actually along the east side of Oak Creek as you walk past Cathedral Rock.
Vortexes are powerful and transformational energy centers that are located at specific sites throughout Sedona, Arizona. Vortexes are the intersections of natural electromagnetic earth energy, also known as ley lines.
Twisted trees indicate the presence of vortex energy, you will noticed twisted Juniper trees on all the major vortexes.
Along with being a major energy source, it is also one of the most beautiful locations in the world.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
