Night surrounded me as I was traipsing the Devil’s Bridge trail in the red land Sedona. The sound of it’s name sent shivers down my spine. I wondered why would they name it Devil’s something for the natural arch so gorgeous. One look at the sky, all the devilish thoughts abated. Soundless dark and silhouettes of bluffs and cliffs against the star-drenched-sky. Mars came peeping through the Capitol Butte and Jupiter shone like a diamond. The magnificent of it all, was the glorious arch of the milky way. It appeared as if mother Earth wielded a shield to protect itself from the dark lords.
