A road trip to the Antelope Canyons with a few friends. For many years, I’ve wanted to visit this place, but never headed that direction. Fortunately, a few friends were going so I tagged along on their weekend road trip getaway towards Arizona.
Antelope Canyon is a popular location for photographers and sightseers. It is a slot canyon in the American Southwest located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona. It includes two separate, photogenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as Upper Antelope Canyon or The Crack; and Lower Antelope Canyon or The Corkscrew.
Antelope Canyon is visited exclusively through guided tours, in part because rains during monsoon season can quickly flood the canyon. Rain does not have to fall on or near the Antelope Canyon slots for flash floods to whip through, as rain falling dozens of miles away ‘upstream’ of the canyons can funnel into them with little prior notice.
