We woke up on Wednesday to clear blue skies and warmer weather. We ate our breakfast quickly and got the hell out of the hotel. Bell Rock was our destination and we wanted to be there by 9 a.m. We made it on schedule. This is another beautiful place and powerful vortex point. Courthouse Rock is seated right next to it as well. We started our hike towards the rock and peeled off our layers of clothing as we hiked.
The kids found a place they wanted to climb so we stopped for a rest. After a short break and a photo shoot, we headed out. We didn’t hike to the top of this rock but hiked completely around it. We spent about 4 hours at this place.
From the back side of the rock, high on the ledge you can see for miles. I got home and realized I did not take enough pictures of this place. But that’s OK. It’s in my mind and that’s the most important place for those images to be.
We met several people from different parts of the globe as we stopped on the ledge to take in the view. Below I could see people hiking and riding bikes. Straight across I could see the Church of the Holy Cross. It’s built into the side of the mountain. We didn’t make it there this trip.
We hooked up with a senior couple from Canada. They were trying to hike out of there and so were we. We forged our own pathway out and down and they followed. It was the right path to take as it took us between Bell and Courthouse Rocks.
I had a tingling sensation the entire time I was in this area. Vortex energy? Altitude? Excitement? Who knows. Who cares? It was a beautiful day.
