A five-day trip to recharge

Updated: Dec 29, 2020

A drive from Texas to California, visiting the four most incredible places to reconnect with the planet and its spirituality.



All my life I'd wanted to see the Grand Canyon and the opportunity finally presented itself. My husband had to go to Texas for work, so we planned to go to see this wonder of nature on our way back home.


When planning our route we found other interesting places that we wanted to know, so we included them in our trip.


Prairie Dog Town


The Prairie Dog Town is in the Mackenzie Park, located in the city of Lubbock in Texas.


#prairiedogs are a species of squirrel with a short tail that does not live in trees, but under the ground. They dig impressive tunnels, with a specific space to relieve themselves, another to sleep, and another in which they can perceive if there is danger outside.


They usually stay away from people, but this little friend that you see next to me, ventured to get close enough to get a treat!.


Petrified Forest - Painted Desert


The #petrifiedforest is located in Arizona and in it you find trees, fossils and land formations that were created in the Triassic period, 225 million years ago.


This is a magical place. The mountains and the logs look like rainbows!. The mountains have more than 7 different colors, each one representing a different era. The gray line was formed in the jurassic era and is where they have found prehistoric fossils.


The forest that was here more than 200 million years ago was destroyed by a volcano and the remains were covered by volcanic ash and water. Erosion removed the volcanic material over time, revealing the petrified logs in quartz. In the photos above you can see this wonder. #findyourpark



Grand Canyon


Our third stop was our main destination, the #grandcanyon! We entered via the South Rim and our first stop was at the Grand Canyon Village. It takes your breath away to witness something so majestic.


Then we drove to Pipe Creek Vista and to Duck on a Rock Viewpoint. If you look at the rocks well at this last point you can see the duck on the rocks !! It has a spectacular view.


Continuing in our exploration, we went to the Grandview Point. It is the highest point from which you can see the Great Canon. At this point you can also see the Colorado River.


But my favorite point was the Lipan Point. It is the one with the best view and you can see the Colorado River very clearly.


When we were going out, we found a deer eating grass on the side of the street, as if nobody was there. It was so close to my window that I could almost touch it!



Sedona


Just two hours from the Grand Canyon is #sedonaarizona, the Red Rock Country, a beautiful and powerful energetic vortex. It is a colorful town full of metaphysical shops, the perfect place for me!


We walked exploring this place for about three hours and I found a wonderful stone that I'd never heard of before, a bumblebee jasper. One of its properties is that it combines your passion with your purpose, directing you towards your life purpose. Has anyone heard of this stone before ??.


After getting to know this town a little, we went to visit the vortex. We had to climb a bit to get to it, easier to go up than to go down. The experience was incredible, I could feel the energy moving in waves from the center of my body outward, the healing energy flowing through my body.


This was the last destination of our trip, a five-day adventure visiting wonderful places that we will never forget. As we started our journey home we started making plans to return to the Grand Canyon to see the north rim and we definitely have to go back to Sedona!
