Summer Vacation | Day 3

On the third day of our vacation, we drove north to Page, Arizona.  We visited Antelope Canyon, Glen Canyon Dam, dropped into Utah and took in the beauty of Horseshoe Bend on our way back to Flagstaff.  It was quite a day.

Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona.  A slot canyon is a narrow canyon, formed by the wear of water rushing through rock.  A slot canyon is significantly deeper than it is wide. 

Here’s what we saw when we arrived at Antelope Canyon X.

Then we made our way down the canyon.

And this is what we saw once we got inside.

Off to the next part of the tour.

And into the dark cave opening.

 

A bit of music from the acoustic guitar echoing through the canyon.

Off to our next stop.  Here’s a photo from the backseat on our drive.

Glen Canyon Dam

Utah!

Lone Rock

Back into Arizona.

Lake Powell

Next stop, Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States.

We didn’t do this.  See below.  But we saw many people doing it.  Yikes!

This is as close as we got.

One last look.  Next time I’ll bring a wide(r) angle lens.
