My “Travel Challenge” Gets Spiritual! Day #2 Heads To The Vortex!

Who’s Up For a Travel Challenge?

Yes, it’s the second day of a really social media challenge I was nominated to participate in – and which I am doing gladly!

Here is my shot for today:

Details On This “Travel Challenge!”

The above photo shows just how inspiring our world can be – and how spiritual it can be to explore it.

Now, about this “travel challenge”: it’s all about visual images – so the challenge is to post a favorite travel picture for 10 days without explanation and nominate someone else to participate.

I love traveling, and I love taking pictures, so this was an easy one for me…but I know I’m sharing a bitt too much about the picture – hey, I’ve always been a rulebreaker!

The “vortex” in Sedona Arizona is powerful – and it’s everywhere…soak it in!

I was nominated by Carol, whose website link is below. Carol shares terrific stories about exotic food and unique recipes, as well as important stories about our environment!

If you want to see more of my trip through Sedona, click on my link here:

Of course, just up the road is this:

Yes, it’s the Grand Canyon!

If you like these stories, PLEASE CLICK THE “LIKE” BUTTON SO I KNOW!

Also, why not sign up to receive emails whenever I post? It’s easy to do, I do NOT collect any information about you at all, there are absolutely NO ads of any kind, just stories about movies, music, books, food, travel and pop culture…

You can sign up by clicking on my blog here and see the note on the right!

Leave a comment and let me know your favorite travel adventures!

  3. I loved Sedona when we visited a few years ago. It is truly a magical place. Those rock formations are amazing. Your photo captures it well.

  6. Rules are made to be broken sometimes, John.
    Gorgeous view there. I’d love to take a roadtrip around the US, and Arizona would of course be on the itinerary. x
