Antelope canyons are one of the most beautiful, naturally formed canyons. Unlike other canyons in the diverse landscape of US that are huge and vast, the Antelope canyons or slot canyons, are small, narrow but deep passageways of spiral rocks.The slot canyons were formed by the erosion of sandstone, mostly due to flash floods.The hues and patterns of formation makes it an excellent subject for photography.There are two slot canyons in this area, upper and lower canyons, of which the lower one is below the ground level and a makeshift ladder is installed to climb down.A little over 4 hours drive from Las Vegas, the Antelope canyons in Page (Arizona) are easily accessible by road.However entry to the canyons is restricted, one must take a local authorized guide.Few hours spent in these corridors that display nature's work of art in the form of exquisite patterns and subtle yet pleasing colors are to be remembered. The experience was made magical by local native American playing melodious tunes on his flute down in the canyon.
Day 10: Page, AZ — Traveling is never complete without good food and meeting new people. On my way to Monument Valley I stopped by an unknown town called Blanding in UT where I sat down with a couple of ranchers over lunch in a local restaurant. We talked about life in cities and towns and how much they like living in their ranches with all the space and time they get over a Navajo bread burrito, one of the best breads I ate. For anyone who remembers the famous scene form Forrest Gump where he stops running. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKKmzmeU5-0).
