Bay Area resident Harshita Kasera recently visited Cathedral Rock in Sedona, where she and her husband, Antriksh Saxena, enjoyed a gorgeous sunrise, breathtaking beauty and epic views of the surrounding landscape.

“Before coming to Sedona, I had read that Sedona is believed to have healing powers in certain locations referred to as energy vortexes,” Kasera says. “Cathedral Rock is one such vortex. I am not sure what it was, but I could feel calmness in the surroundings there and could sit there for hours.

“We also saw some hot air balloons in the sky and everything felt so magical. Cathedral Rock is truly the most beautiful spot in Sedona. The stunning display of sun rays hitting on the red rocks is totally worth getting up early in the morning.”
