LOWER ANTELOPE CANYON
WHERE THE LIGHT GETS IN
There is a crack in everything...
You would never know, while standing on this high desert landscape, that just below lies a fairyland of light and shadow. Sculpted by stones and water during flash floods, Lower Antelope Canyon provides easy access to a beautiful slot canyon.
The canyon is located just outside Page, AZ on Navaho Tribal land. You must pay ($8.00) for access & parking ($20.00) to hike the canyon w/ guide. We almost didn't go... we've hiked slot canyons before always alone & never w/guide. But encouraged by a fellow camper's advice that it was a "not to miss" experience, we signed on.
They really make it easy to experience this wonder- ladders now replace hand and toeholds for climbing up steep sections. Easy access does not diminish the beauty of this place.
Pictures are worth a thousand words so let's just enjoy these photos of nature's sculpted beauty.
The canyon is about a half a mile long and can be as deep as 120 feet in some spots. MOST of these photos were taken without flash or filters. HOWEVER some were taken using the "chrome" filter available on iPhone camera. The bright purples were achieved with the filter...
