Grand
Canyons
Appearing like a
sliver in the earth
from the surface,
a slot canyon can
descend hundreds
of feet, opening into
a surreal landscape
with unique colors
and mystical beams
of light. Antelope
Canyon in the Lake
Powell region makes
an exciting excursion
for groups interested in geology
and/or nature photography. Closed to
the public, tours of
the canyon require
authorized guides,
such as Antelope
Canyon Tours, which
offers a professional
photographer’s tour
and a shorter, more
accessible Upper
Antelope Canyon
tour. Both are led by
well-trained guides
who can enlighten
clients on the history
of the canyon.
