Vortex Definition: A vortex is the funnel shape created by a whirling fluid or by the motion of spiraling energy. Familiar examples of vortex shapes are whirlwinds, tornadoes, and water going down a drain. A vortex can be made up of anything that flows, such as wind, water, or electricity. : 

Vortex Definition: A vortex is the funnel shape created by a whirling fluid or by the motion of spiraling energy. Familiar examples of vortex shapes are whirlwinds, tornadoes, and water going down a drain. A vortex can be made up of anything that flows, such as wind, water, or electricity. New Age Sedona Vortexes are “swirling centers of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth.”

Slide 4: 

In a relatively small area the elevation changes from high desert at about 3,000 feet to cool pine forests at 8,000 feet, providing several different kinds of habitat. Add to this the life-rich riparian zones of Oak Creek Canyon, the Verde River and other smaller creeks, and you have a paradise for those who appreciate nature's beauty and complexity.

Pinyon-juniper woodlands : 

Pinyon-juniper woodlands The main Ecosystem type in Sedona Dominant plant species are Pinyon Pine, and many different species of Juniper Utah Juniper Pinyon Pine

Slide 6: 

Annual precipitation is typically from 10 to about 15 inches in pinyon-juniper woodlands, and species in these communities have evolved drought resistance.

Most of the precipitation comes in the form of monsoon storms, which can be both beautiful, and terrifying.Northern Arizona is #2 for lightning strikes in North America :

Micro-biotic Soil/Crust : 

Micro-biotic Soil/Crust Biological soil crusts are commonly found in semiarid and arid environments throughout the world. A soil crust is a complex, living community. The exact composition varies from place to place, but a soil crust can include algae, bacteria, lichens, mosses, fungi, liverworts, and, especially, cyanobacteria – the organisms formerly known as blue-green algae. Biological soils are extremely fragile (if you touch it or step on it, it will die!) VERY slow growing. Can take 20-200years for soils to grow, or grow back once disturbed Important for the ecosystem: they hold on to soil to stop erosion, a natural fertilizer for plants, and keeps moisture beneath the soil.
