That’s aviation code for Charleston, SC to Atlanta, GA to Phoenix, AZ to Sedona, AZ. When I travel, I love, luv, lurve falling back into my aviation speak from my flight attendant days. It’s a silly little something that makes me happy.
Last week, my friend Lil and I embarked on a trip Out West. In the planning of this adventure, many destinations were discussed, and our first stop was to be the new-age “spiritual vortex” of Sedona, Arizona, known for its Native American history and ancient red rock formations. I consulted my NY Times’ bestseller 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and found the highly-recommended Enchantment Resort & Mii Amo Spa.
Enchantment is out of the way. It’s not on the main drag of Sedona; you have to drive considerably past the city limits. Tucked into the side of the formations, it’s very deliberate in its built-in appearance and feels like you’re a part of the red rocks. There’s an entire ecosystem of indigenous plants and wildlife. On the morning we checked out, and we left early, I caught a glimpse of a pack of 3-4 wolves on the outer edge of the property. I kid you not! Wolves!!! (which I was told later by a tour guide, is a very fortuitous sighting;). There was the snake that Lil stepped on, on the way to our spa appointment, and there was plenty of roadkill on the winding roads that led up to Sedona: skunk, coyote, and deer, and badger.
