No visit to Sedona is complete without a visit to one of their otherworldly vortex sites, such as Bell Rock or Boynton Canyon. Vortices are thought to be unique areas on the planet where energy directly enters or exits the earth. Indigenous tribes were first drawn to Sedona more than 10,000 years ago, mostly due to the springs at Oak Creek Canyon. Hollywood settled here, as well, beginning with Zane Grey’s 1923 silent film, Call of the Canyon. A variety of movies later starred John Wayne, Elvis Presley and the Wild West itself. Sedona was named after Sedona Schnebly. She and her husband, T.C. Schnebly, were one of the town’s early American settlers who built a two-story home that served as the first hotel and general store. In 1902, T.C. organized the area’s first post office, naming the town after his wife, Sedona.
