The walk to the vortex was a short one- accessible in just 5 minutes
from the parking lot on flat ground.
A vortex is a swirling center of energy coming from the Earth.
The energy was very peaceful, but unmistakably powerful.
It’s center emanated from one rock about 10 feet across. (Not pictured).
The park ranger called this vortex a “Buddha Land”.
People were inspired to spontaneously create cairns,
which were not made simply to mark a trail, as is usually
seen in North America. Offerings to the magic and beauty
of the land, they ranged from the whimsical, to the religious,
to the realm of art and spirit.
