An adventure of my life time!

Shaman’s Cave is located west of Sedona off some dirt road. It is not one of those “touristy” spots. Actually, without joined the local hikers, I wouldn’t find it on my own. It is in a relative desolate area, without any sign leading to the Cave.

Legend has it–the early explorers described this area as “a perfect hideout in no-man’s-land” which has earned this cave the nickname Robbers’ Roost. Of course, no one knows for sure whether any bad guy actually hid here. But someone lived up there before, as evidenced by the impressive ruin.

The cave is wonderful, but the “window” on one side of the cave is even more impressive. It is a near-perfect 6 feet circular window. I heard different stories—some said it is all natural, but others doubted it. No matter whether it is natural or not, it is amazing. From the cave you can catch a glimpse of Sedona in the not-so-far distance.
