Antelope Canyon was absolutely amazing to visit. It is located in Arizona, a slot canyon on the land of the Native American tribe, the Navajo Nation. We decided to visit the lower Antelope Canyon, also called Hazdistazí, which means Spiral Rock Arches.
It's required to take a tour, but that was a big asset as our guide Cassie was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Climbing down the five flights of deep metal stairs to get underground, we were fascinated by the view that welcomed us.
The sandstone walls were curved in, and many times so narrow, that no two people could walk next to each other. There was almost no straight path at any time since it seemed to curve every three feet. The walls were beautiful. The water had carved different patterns into them, and when the sun came through the openings in the top, they shone almost golden. It was quite magical and very special to see these different structures shaped by nature. We were lucky that, at the time of our tour, the canyon was not as crowded as it usually is, so nobody rushed us. Cassie knew exactly where you had to stand to take the perfect pictures to capture the beauty of this canyon. We were so glad that we had visited this special place.
We rounded out our day with a boat tour on Lake Powell to the canyon opening where we could view the red rock canyon walls up close.
