Bushwhack Deluxe

Bushwacking far west of Tortugas
Becca and I decided (you know what I mean) to do some serious bushwhacking while the weather is somewhat cool and snake season hasn't started yet.  The stone circle we stumbled upon for a second time is intriguing.  Whoever made it took the trouble of piling lots of small rocks around the Torrey Yucca, which is not in the center; but there are several spokes radiating across the center in a Y shape.  I felt no particular power emanating from that spot so I can't say it's an energy vortex.

Since it's still a brown desert, some of those yucca look almost skeletal.

You're too far from Sedona for the energy to emanate...

If we ever could afford to move to Sedona it wouldn't be the energy vortexes attracting us there. For sheer beauty it's one of the most spectacular spots on Earth.
