Take the Grand Canyon Antelope Canyon tour from Las Vegas on the site with great deals nowdays. To begin your perfect Antelope Canyon trip in this Summer. When I first started doing my research for visiting Antelope Canyon during my American Southwest road trip, a striped and bright orange Navajo Sandstone canyon in Arizona carved by flash flooding and erosion, I realized that there are two – upper and lower. They are accessed via different locations and have quite a few things that set them apart from each other as well. Then came the question of which to choose or if it made sense to visit both.
The photographer in me couldn’t resist photographing both and the writer in me couldn’t resist covering both here on the blog, so I visited each at their respective best times of day for lighting. This probably also means I visited at the most popular time of day, and in one of the most popular months (May).
It was a crowded and claustrophobic but an also must-have experience because of the way that those canyons swirl and curve into some kind of trippy corridor that feels like it’s leading you to the bowels of Earth. You have to see it to believe it, and even then you still might not.
Tips for Page:
The nice thing about this part of Arizona is you also have horseshoe bend nearby, which is perfect at sunset, as well as Lake Powell and White Pocket, the Wave, and Vermillion Cliffs National Monument.
The town itself is not particularly amazing, but I was able to find a free BLM campsite that was walking distance to Lake Powell and camped there overnight twice in my camper van, which was beautiful and peaceful.
