The hills around Sedona, Arizona, are a magnet for new-age enthusiasts and psychic healers because of their purported vortexes, or psychic-energy sites. But these spiritual seekers don't have this beautiful place to themselves: For nonbelievers as well, Sedona is a welcome oasis sitting beneath massive red-rock cliffs at the mouth of beautiful Oak Creek Canyon. What was once a small farming community is now a major travel destination because of its rock formations and primeval landscapes.   Click here to see the full Sedona travel guide on Travel42 »

Arizona Highway 179, the All American Road, offshoots from Interstate 17 and leads visitors through the Village of Oak Creek, an unincorporated area that meets Sedona city limits near the often-photographed Chapel of the Holy Cross. A short distance to the north, Highway 179 curves west toward the center of town, where it meets Highway 89A at a traffic circle. These are the only main roads in the 25-sq-mi/65-sq-km town, which is surrounded on all sides by natural red-rock monuments with whimsical names, such as Coffee Pot, Snoopy and Merry-Go-Round.   Click here to see the full Sedona travel guide on Travel42 »

The spectacular red-rock formations that surround Sedona were formed throughout millions of years. About 300 million years ago, the area alternated between being the bottom of the ocean and coastal plains. Between 65 and 20 million years ago, a complex process of uplifting and down faulting that created the Mogollon Rim at the south end of the huge 150,000-sq-mi/388,500-sq-km Colorado Plateau. Then, about 3 million years ago, the plateau uplifted. The erosion of the landscape since then is what has created the red rock formations we know as Sedona.  Click here to see the full Sedona travel guide on Travel42 »
