Brin’s Mesa

I have only been twice to Sedona – during my 1st visit, I very much enjoyed the scenic place with incredible red rock formations, but at the same, pooh-poohed the idea of Sedona’s “Energy Vortexes”.

Still, there is something to that place that makes it very unique, wanting me to return. My 2nd visit happened after Labor Day 2015, meaning most, if not all of tourists had left, which made the hikes and pretty much everything else, much more enjoyable.

The absence of people also help me to appreciate this spiritual and sacred place, it had been for Indians for thousands of years.

The sandstone contains iron, granite, and traces of copper, sliver, and gold; and even I can consider them as natural electromagnetic conductors, maybe capable of affecting the human psyche, in case of an electrical discharge of a frequency or resonance.


Brin’s Mesa Trail starts at the North-end of town and is considered a moderate hike for this area, having an elevation gain of only about 600 feet. The views are fantastic and you truly get the feeling, to walk on sacred grounds.
