We'd already been to Carlsbad Caverns and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.My choice was to go to Antelope Canyon near Lake Powell,Arizona.And I'd like to share some experience there with you after a memorable trip of Antelope Canyon National Park tours last month.

The Photos of the Canyon

This natural wonder is a slot canyon which is formed by water rushing through the sandstone.Andrew,our Navajo guide,told us that,this year,there were 28 people who couldn't complete the tour due to claustrophobia.

I was originally attracted to Antelope Canyon by the images of it found on the internet.My traveling companion said later that she originally thought those images had to have been doctored by some computer program.She couldn't imagine anything unusual and so beautiful...and then she saw the sights.

You Must Have a Navajo Guide

Antelope Canyon is in Navajo Nation and having a Navajo guide is a requirement if you wish to go through this area.When the leaders of the Navajo found out what was happening,they closed the area to all but those accompanied by official Navajo Guides.

We chose the Antelope Canyon Tour Company which is owned and operated by Navajos.This was not a photographic tour,our Navajo guide Andrew was well acquainted with the best methods and positions to obtain some amazing photographs worthy of a professional.

Flash Flood Precautions

Anyone who enjoys the beauty of nature would enjoy this tour.Even if you are an amateur photographer,bring your camera.You'll be amazed at the photos you'll be able to show off.

He pointed out the water levels and told us how the floods would bring in so much sand the floor of Antelope Canyon was raised by 8 feet.The next flood would wash the sand out and the level of the floor would go down.
