Spiritual Vortexes in Sedona: Chapel of the Holy Cross

Just beyond the city limits of Sedona is an architectural feat known as the Chapel of the Holy Cross.  In keeping with Sedona’s theme as a “spiritual vortex,” this is a church that’s built into the side of the red rocks formations.  This was conceived of by sculptor Marguerite Brunswig Staude, and built by a former student of Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956.

The 12 inch walls of this church were sandblasted to feature the aggregate red stone.
I really like seeing churches when I travel. It’s likely that I’ve said a prayer for You in one or more of them 😉 This is inside the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

We left the Chapel of the Holy Cross and drove to a scenic vista at the Sedona Airport, site of the “balanced vortex.” This guy was helping tourists get their shots. I wanted a pic of this dude snapping photos. Oh, and those clouds. . .

Next stop, Grand Canyon.
