My wife and I decided to take advantage of the Independence Day weekend and take in Phoenix. We both thought of spending one of those days in Sedona. Checking out the best way to take advantage of this we elected to utilize the services of Sacred Earth Tours and Clinton Frakes. My wife and I like to take, see and experience different and unique features of places we travel. We were not there to take in the local arts galleries and craft stores. I had scheduled our tour two weeks in advance with a short phone call with Clint and a simple deposit on line. Arrangements were made when and where to meet. A local coffee shop was chosen. Java Love is a local favorite and we soon realized that we were in good hands for the day. After a brief discussion we decided on hiking Cathedral Rock. Clint provided us a history of the area going back millions of years. It made the area a little more special. Along the trails his information on the flora provided us with a wealth of information on how the native Indians were able to use them as medicine. Taking us on several paths less traveled enabled us to see stone etchings in the mountain providing some of the history of the people from that area. A stop at a small stream cooled us off from the late morning sun. The hike was perfect. Clint provided us with enough information to interest us but not too much to feel like we were back in school.
After a brief lunch we were off again. This time he chose Secret Valley. Clint briefed us on the history of the area and some of the local folklore before we arrived. Again Clint picked a perfect place to take in the scenery of Sedona. We had the valley to our selves and were really able to appreciate the nature of the area. Along the way, Clint provided us with a unique educational experience of the area. We finally arrived back at his car at around 6:30pm. We had no idea that we had spent almost ten hours with him. All in all my wife and I felt that we had taken full advantage of the short time we had in Sedona. If you want to see the arts and crafts more time is definitely needed. With his years of experience in the area and being someone of true character and peace with the land, Clint will provide you a specialized tour of the area taking into consideration your desires and physical abilities.
