Following Water and Wind through Antelope Canyon
From ground level, Lower Antelope Canyon looks like a simple crack in the parched earth that stretches East from Page, AZ. But as soon as you begin your descent into the canyon, you find yourself enveloped in glowing, red stone waves. Carved out by thousands of years of water and wind, this slot canyon zigzags for a quarter mile, revealing stunning rock formations at every turn. When the sun is just right, shafts of light pierce the canyon walls. Lower Antelope Canyon as well as nearby Upper Antelope can only be visited with a Navajo guide. Tours can be arranged at the canyon entrances. As we neared the end of our tour, our guide pulled out a traditional Navajo flute. Everything was still and silent as his hauntingly beautiful notes echoed along the flowing walls.
