Love the warm color of the cloud!As for blimp rides, Google "blimp" and see what is available. Goodyear does give rides for promotional and charitable purposes, but you cannot just call them to signup.

Re: Sedona and Vortex. I don't know if I felt something, but I did an 8 mile hike that day covering three trails: First was the Cathedral Rock in the morning, next the Bell Rock after lunch and the third for sunset was the Red Rock Crossing. I did not felt exhausted or tired. It was a 5 day vacation and 3 days were all hiking the two were travel time.
