I had an opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon for the first time recently, I stayed in a cabin near the Lodge, at the North Rim. I didn’t hike anywhere, really. Just drove about to the various viewpoints.
Wow. The vast space, the light, the colors all left me speechless.
Every spring I take a trip to Utah to go canyoneering. last year, someone asked me if I’d ever visited Antelope Canyon, and I answered that I’d never even heard of the place. Soon after I had a look on-line and was stunned by the images.
So, this year I added it to the list of places to visit.
The canyon is in Page, Arizona, on the Navajo Indian Reservation. The only was to visit is to book a photo tour, something I would normally avoid.
The canyon is narrow, but easy to walk through, the floor is sandy and completely flat. Being only a few hundred feet long its not a long excursion, but every step is filled with colors, textures, light and shapes out of a dream.
