AZU - Upper Antelope Canyon by landscapes AZU - Upper Antelope Canyon by landscapes
"his is one of the few slot canyons that survived being flooded by Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam, and is probably the most famous slot canyon in the world.
Upper Antelope can only be reached on a guided Navajo tour, due to a flash flood that took the lives of 12 tourists in 1997. It is narrow at the top and widens as it descends. This allows the little bit of sun that gets in to bounce around all the curves and lines in the walls. It is this reflected light that makes the canyon come alive with glowing reds and oranges, and also allows sunbeams to come in, Antelope Canyon's most famous feature.

"My guide, Chief Ray Tsosie, was one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. He knew all the photo spots by heart, and was an incredible help in getting the shots that I got. He brought his flutes, and played into a special alcove deep in the Canyon. The music filled the canyon like liquid gold, and it was one of the most peaceful, beautiful things I have experienced..."
