Re: My experience visiting Antelope Canyon in Arizona

Hola @TraciC, a mi me gustaron las fotos del superiro, por los colores, pero supongo que todo depende del horario y la toma fotográfica que se realize en ese momento. Definitivamente es un lugar que agendare visitar la vez que visite EEUUU, es impresionante la iluminación, los tonos de los colores, es como indicas celestial 😇. Y por supuesto no podían faltar tus saltos, creo que podemos decir que es una marca registrada jajajaja 😂. Me encantó el post 👏 .

@TraciC  I have seen images of the Canyons before but I absolutely love how you framed the beams of light against the sandstone folds.

 

It looks like you were having buckets of fun.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with us.

Re: My experience visiting Antelope Canyon in Arizona

Wow! Wow!! Wow!!! It's nice seeing you @TraciC jumping right inside Canyon in Arizona. I had seen several pictures of this nature's awesome scene but seeing someone I know take pictures right in there just feeds my crave to visit as soon as I can.

Last week, I took a trip with one of my best friends to Nevada, Utah and Arizona to see some of the beautiful sights (and maybe a concert in Las Vegas!). One of the highlights was Antelope Canyon which are canyons formed by the flowing of water in a rock. What makes them so special is that they're very deep but rather narrow, with sunlight peeking in. In Arizona, the sun lights up the sandstone so incredibly, it looks like heavenly! From May-ish to November-ish, there are beautiful sun beams that make it even more beautiful but we decided to visit in February to avoid the heat and the sights were just as majestic.

 

In Antelope Canyon, there are two major attractions:

Upper Antelope Canyon

Lower Antelope Canyon

 

Access to the canyons are limited and require a Navajo tour guide, so trips are done through tour companies. For Upper, I went with Antelope Slot Canyon Tours by Chief Tsosie and for Lower, Ken's Tours.

 

I did a lot of reading on Google Maps and on various blogs and decided to visit Lower in the morning (9am) and Upper in the afternoon (3pm). Of the two, Lower Antelope Canyon was my favorite, but I'll let you decide for yourself based on the pictures:

 Lower Antelope Canyon was my favorite as the tour groups were much smaller, so it didn't feel like a tourist attraction. Plus, it didn't hurt that the lighting was more stunning first thing in the morning!

 

Now, any post by me isn't complete without a few jumping pictures, right?

I promise to share my reviews, detailed itinerary, recommendations and more about how Google Maps saved our trip during a bad weather spell soon. :)
