Sacred place

Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona is a sacred and magical place. Let me explain: it's special because, unlike many canyons which form by a river, Antelope Canyon is actually a massive mound of fossilized sand that was washed out by rain and flash floods. The result, as you can see, is sublime. The walls fold and undulate like they were made out of cloth.

It's also a sacred place belonging to the Navajo Nation and only certified Indian guides are allowed to bring visitors through the canyon.

Arizona magic!

This pace has been considered sacred by the Navajo since the beginning of time, and it's true that it is a a magical place especially when the light filters through the rock formations. The natural dust in the area creates what looks like a waterfall of light that's just spectacular. The mix of the light and the rock makes for an experience which is, for lack of a better word, magical.

Spectacular rock formations

The photos explain it all. Upper Antelope Canyon is a natural wonder in the Southwest that rivals any to be found in the US. It’s in Navajo country and you need to visit the canyon with a guide, but it’s pretty cheap and the guide was nice enough and gave us some pretty interesting info. Once you’re down in the canyon, it’s incredible. It’s hard to believe that it came about completely naturally and wasn’t the work of some strange artist. The walls curve and slope and there are small waterfalls around every corner. If you’re taking a trip through the southwest or visiting the Grand Canyon, you should definitely add this to your itinerary.
