That electrifying sensation of free flowing energy coming up from the ground, flowing all through your body, a tingling running down to your fingertips, making the small hairs at the back of your neck stand up, leaving you wondering what just happened? You found the vortex! Sedona was saving the best for last. We shared it with a yogi flutist and his dog, a married couple staging their wedding photos, a few other photographers, some people that came to enjoy the sunset. Now we could leave Sedona feeling happy (although not happy to leave Sedona).
A short trail for 360° views of Sedona and loads of good energy.
Designed by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, inspired by the Empire State Building in New York upon which Marguerite perceived a cross, had it not been for the Second World War, the Chapel would have been built in Budapest, Hungary overlooking the Danube, co-designed with Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright.
As fate (or was it the hand of god) would have it, the Chapel of the Holy Cross came to be in Sedona, where Staude, together with Richard Hein and August K. Strotz of the Anshen & Allen architecture company, ”decided upon a twin-pinnacled spur 80m-high jutting out of a 300m rock wall which Staude described as being as solid as the rock of Peter”.

It was completed in 1956 and received an Award of Honor by the American Institute of Architects, in 1957.
On the other hand, the huge mansion simply known as ”The House”, obstructing the view across from the Chapel, was commissioned by Dr. Ioan Cosmescu, an inventor and biomedical engineer who obviously did very well financially, was completed in 2008 and received the ”Eyesore Award” by the local community, every year since.
