Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon located on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona and a definite “must see.” The Canyon is comprised of two separate slot canyon sections called “Upper Antelope Canyon,” or “The Crack,” and “Lower Antelope Canyon,” or “The Corkscrew.” We toured Lower Antelope Canyon and it was spectacular!
Antelope Canyon was formed by erosion of Sandstone, primarily due to flash flooding. Rainwater, sometimes from far upstream, runs into the basin above the slot canyon sections, rushes into the narrow passageways, and erodes the walls with the sand and debris picked up along the way. Over time the passageways have eroded, making the corridors deeper and smoothing hard edges creating the ‘flowing’ shapes in the rock.
In order to tour the canyon you must go with a guide since it’s on Navajo land and is deemed a Navajo Tribal Park.
You can see from the photos, how truly beautiful it is. It’s totally worth the trip.
