Arizona has been inhabited for at least 15,000 years and the state is home to 15 Native American tribes. Continue to the artist colony of Sedona to visit its outstanding collection of galleries, shops and restaurants. Sedona is called "Red Rock Country" because it's surrounded by magnificent red rock formations. Some people believe that certain areas in Sedona have strong energy forces known as vortexes and are believed to revitalize you. We will stop for photos at a well-known vortex called Bell Rock.  Arrive at your Sedona hotel. Enjoy dinner tonight. (BD)

This morning we enter the Navajo Indian Nation for a jeep tour of the restricted backcountry of Monument Valley (called Valley of the Rocks by the Navajo). This is a beautiful, pristine area of buttes and arches which is accessible only with authorized Navajo guides. The Valley was the backdrop for many Western classics so, after lunch at Gouldings Lodge overlooking the valley, it’s natural we also visit the Hollywood Museum dedicated to the films made in this locale.
