This was taken on one of the stops on a 28 day 10,000 mile roadtrip a couple buddies and I took around the US right after undergrad graduation. This is one of my favorite spots, getting to sit on the edge with my feet hanging over a huge drop down into the river as the sunset put a beautiful red/orange glow on the rock around us was incredible.
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is located on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. It was formed by erosion of Navajo Sandstone, primarily due to flash flooding. Rainwater runs into the extensive basin above the slot canyon sections, picking up speed and sand as it rushes into the narrow passageways. I visited this wonder of nature in the summer of 2016.
We were lucky enough to win permits in the lottery (only 20 people a day can hike the wave) on our second try. There’s no trail, you receive a step by step guide with photos. It was extremely warm so we packed a lot of water. Most of the time we were alone. It’s really something you only get to see once in your life, if you’re lucky!
I could not stop looking up at the vast amounts of designs and textures each turn took you. Still today I want to go back every time I see a picture of this place. Your next hurts when you get out of the canyon but its worth the pain.
This is a pic of the famous Buckhorn Wash in Utah. It’s fading away due to erosion and the forces of nature; it’s sad to see such a amazing inspiring piece of art made hundreds of years ago. I’m really interested in Archeology and Anthropology as well, I just love history. :)
We’ve been on a very intense photography session for photographers at Antelope Canyon, Page, USA. at the same time, they have photographers groups and tourists, however, when photographers shoot guides stop all the tourists to avoid people in the shot. That girl always tried to do Instagram style picture, staying still with the book and looking to the side, while everyone was screaming and asking her to go away. Apparently, in one of my shot, she looks like a ghost and I kind of like it.
