Antelope Canyon: The Most Famous Slot Canyon in the World
Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon are two of the most iconic, famous, and photogenic landmarks in Arizona. Just north of the Grand Canyon lies Horseshoe Bend, a unique and beautiful landmark that foreshadows Grand Canyon. To its east lies Antelope Canyon, a deep and narrow slot canyon whose sunset orange walls and its famous Corkscrew form potentially the finest photography opportunities in Arizona. We will see Antelope Canyon at midday, when rays of light burst through, and Horseshoe Bend at sunset, when purples, oranges, reds, greens, and blues dance in unison.
