Cathedral Rock Aerial

360º Views

Most of the red rock formations in Sedona take on a different look from various locations.  Cathedral Rock is a special formation because it can be seen 360º from different well traveled roads. It is also one of the most recognizable rock formations in all of Sedona.  Of course this angle looking down is not very recognizable because it is rarely photographed from above.

I like this picture because you can see the airport sitting on a mesa on the left side and on the right side, you can look up through Oak Creek Canyon. If the helicopter was a couple hundred feet higher, the view would extend to Humphrey’s Peak which is an extinct cone shaped volcano in the Flagstaff area.

Hiking – Beginner or Expert 

Cathedral can be hiked either all the way around or can be negotiated at different levels of expertise and height. There is a 600 foot climb if you choose to do it! It has areas that allow sound to reverberate which creates a different vibrational level usually in a “saddle” location.

An Enigma

Cathedral Rock can be an enigma to those who visit it.  Many believe there are opposite vortex energy forces, a male and female influence. I can’t tell you what you would feel in an area of vortex energy. Everyone has a different feeling or no feeling at all.

This view is the classic view that most people recognize. You are looking into the saddle area. This image is from Oak Creek in Red Rock Crossing.
