Antelope Canyon

Also in Page, AZ is Antelope Canyon.  There are actually two sections of this canyon, Lower and Upper.  We went to Lower which is less busy and (I think) cooler to look at.  These canyons are formed by flash flooding.  Fast moving water is what has carved them over time – that’s what leaves the paintbrush like streaks on the walls.  It was overcast when we went so we didn’t get the bouncing light that this canyon is famous for.  Still, I think the pictures are pretty amazing.  Every corner was breathtaking!

When you visit Antelope Canyon, you will be going onto tribal land.  Tours are required and they are run by the Navajo tribe.  All of the employees that we talked to were Navajo and were very knowledgeable about the area.  The tour was great – our guide gave us a lot of information about the canyon and was happy to help us with pictures of us and lighting / filters that make the images pop.  The walk was tight and in places has steep stairs so be careful!  Just awesome natural beauty to behold – I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
