Looking Upwards in Awe Inside the Slot Canyons in Page, Arizona
Sculpted over the eons by the forces of sand, wind, and water, these twisting underground caverns are prized for the changing reflections of sunlight bouncing off narrow sandstone walls. This causes shifting hues of orange, amber, pink and rust colors, as if stage lights were in use. Located inside the Navajo Indian Reservation, the favorites are both the Upper and Lower Antelope Slot Canyons, which are up to 70 feet deep, inside a literal crack of the earth. Visitors must be escorted by guides approved by the Navajo tribe.
