In an effort to find out where this vault with mummies and artifacts might be located, I went down to my mom's bookstore and got a hiker's map of the Grand Canyon. Pouring over the map, I was suddenly shocked to see that much of the area on the north side of the canyon had Egyptian names. The area around Ninety-four Mile Creek and Trinity Creek had areas (rock formations, apparently) with names like Tower of Set, Tower of Ra, Horus Temple, Osiris Temple, and Isis Temple. In the Haunted Canyon area were such names as the Cheops Pyramid, the Buddha Cloister, Buddha Temple, Manu Temple and Shiva Temple. Was there any relationship between these places and the alleged Egyptian discoveries in the Grand Canyon?
I called a State archaeologist at the Grand Canyon, and was told by the female voice on the phone that the early explorers had just liked Egyptian and Hindu names, but that it was true that this area was off limits to hikers or visitors, "because of dangerous caves."
Indeed, this entire area with the Egyptian and Hindu place names in the Grand Canyon is forbidden zone, no one is allowed into this large area. Despite the many thousands of tourists to the Grand Canyon each year, the lofty walls and spectacular buttes of this natural wonder still hold many secrets, which have not yet been revealed, to the public at large.
Most people think of Sedona as a very powerful vortex area which is not far from the grand Canyon...

If you wonder what people traveled around the world to find...
I'm told it is very close to here about 4000 feet north of the river

Could it have been the healing properties of these stones that brought them around the world?
Grayish-white quartz, peach-colored alkali feldspar, and black biotite dominate the pegmatite dike. We would also find chlorite (green mica).

Summer is coming is anyone interested in going on an adventure to find this ancient site?
I'd love to, but...
The article on the front page of Phoenix Gazette, 5 April 1909 quoted G. E. Kinkaid saying that:
"It is located on government land and no visitor will be allowed there under penalty of trespass. The scientists wish to work unmolested, without fear of the archaeological discoveries being disturbed by curio or relic hunters. A trip there would be fruitless and the visitor would be sent on his way."
The "Archaeological Cover-Ups?" chapter of "Suppressed Inventions" (http://www.amazon.com/Suppressed-Inventions-Jonathan-Eisen/dp/0399527354) by Jonathan Eisen also talks about this site. It said that the area is a "forbidden zone--no one is allowed into this large area" and it is "off-limits to all hikers and even, in large part, park personnel".

I thought it was on Indian land. the gov gave the land to the Indians then found natural reservoirs on it and now lease the land.

I have heard of an underground crystal city in sedona at/around the area known as "bell rock". Just a rumor that's all. I'll have to see if i can find the book i read that in. if i do i'll post for you. I have never been there but had some family visit that area and did mention a giant rock and mineral show that they have there every year. The came home with some very interesting stones some kind of translucent lave stone from south america. Looks really cool when you put a bright light though it. Anyway...so i did get to see a few interesting pictures of the area! cool photos and some interesting information, thanks Rocky Peace JT!

Sedona has many amazing things, I used to go hiking there all the time, one day out for a hike with my friend, I stopped I could hear a conversation that was going on almost 15 miles away, I called my dad on my cell phone and asked if he was talking with my nephew about... and he was amazed I recalled almost word for word of what was said.
They have just about every mineral in the world in that area and huge veins of special gems that the ancients used to use to communicate across to the dead...
I have explored any ancient caves but haven't heard about a crystal cavern I'll see what I can find

17,000 acres burning between Sedona and this ancient site right now...
In the desert it takes hundreds of years for trees to grow to the same height as a normal environment would grow in 2...

The fire is burning North of Sedona in Flagstaff....about 20% of it has been contained :(
Arizona wildfire at 20 percent containment
(AP) – 1 hour ago
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A fire near Flagstaff, Arizona, is 20 percent contained.
Fire information officer Larry Tunforss (TOON'-force) told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the fire has burned 14,000 acres.
More burnout operations are planned late Wednesday to help remove dead trees and brush that fuel a wildfire.
The fire once threatened homes and forced evacuations, but that threat has subsided. Still, residents haven't been able to return home because of heavy smoke in the area. Winds are light and instead of blowing out, smoke has drifted into evacuated neighborhoods.
Overnight, crews worked the fire perimeter as they attempted to contain more of the blaze. Fire bosses say they expect the wildfire to be out in a few weeks.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities working to battle a 14,000-acre wildfire that's threatened neighborhoods and clouded skies with smoke were to decide Wednesday on whether to allow an estimated 1,000 residents to return home.
Lower wind speeds gave fire crews some relief Tuesday, and officials were confident that hundreds of previously endangered Flagstaff homes have been secured. By late Tuesday afternoon, authorities announced that the so-called Schultz fire was 20 percent contained.
But efforts to fight the blaze will likely continue for at least two weeks, incident commander Dugger Hughes said at a news conference Tuesday evening.
"It's going to be a long haul," he said. "But it's looking good."
The fire's southern edge is about five miles from Flagstaff, a forested mountain town of about 60,000. Crews continued to work on containment lines on the south and north sides where the fire is most active, said fire spokeswoman Erin Phelps.
Residents who showed up at a shelter at lunchtime were still waiting to hear how long they had to be out of their homes. Tracey Simpson, who has stayed in hotels the past two nights, learned she would have to find a room for yet another night.
Simpson and her husband moved to Flagstaff from Pennsylvania five weeks ago and were forced to evacuate on Sunday from the home they rent in the fire area.
She has no assurance of recovering any possessions if they were lost to the flames.
"We were unprepared," Simpson said. "I forgot to get renter's insurance."
Staying in hotels is getting expensive, she said, and they can't bring their two dogs along to sleep at a shelter.
"I have never experienced anything like this," Simpson said. "We just want to go home."
Two heavy air tankers were used on the blaze Tuesday, said fire spokesman Eric Neitzel. The tankers, part of 19 under contract through the U.S. Forest Service to fight fires across the country, are capable of carrying more than 2,000 gallons of fire retardant used to slow the spread of fire.
Strong winds had quickly fanned the fire that broke out Sunday. Authorities said it was started by an abandoned campfire. No major injuries have been reported and no structures have burned.
Conditions are dry, despite record amounts of snowfall in the area last winter. Authorities said campfires are to blame for the Schultz fire and another smaller one in southeast Flagstaff. Campfires will be prohibited in three Arizona forests starting Wednesday.
The fire in southeast Flagstaff was 80 percent contained Tuesday afternoon. A third fire 11 miles northeast of Williams was expected to be fully contained Wednesday.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer toured the fire area Tuesday. Earlier in the day, she spoke with President Barack Obama, who assured her of the federal government's continued support in firefighting efforts. Two requests from the state for federal fire management assistance funds have been granted.
In Colorado, firefighters battled a 700-acre wildfire Tuesday west of Canon City near the scenic Royal Gorge Bridge. The blaze forced an unknown number of residents from their homes and destroyed several structures. It wasn't immediately known whether any of those were homes.
The suspension bridge that crosses the 1,200-foot deep gorge over the Arkansas River remained off limits. River rafting through the gorge has also been shut down because of the fire.

I'm here in Sedona, no evidence of the wildfire here. But, I was in Flagstaff on Monday and saw clouds of smoke north of town.
No chance of rain here anytime soon, so I sure hope they get this under control.
