Upper Antelope Canyon | Page, Arizona

Antelope Canyon is an amazing natural rock formation on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. The slot canyon includes two separate, scenic sections referred to individually as “Upper Antelope Canyon” or “The Crack”; and “Lower Antelope Canyon” or “The Corkscrew”.

The canyon was formed by erosion of Navajo Sandstone, primarily due to flash flooding. During monsoon season, rainwater runs into the extensive basin above the slot canyon sections, picking up speed and sand as it rushes into the narrow passageways. Over time the passageways have eroded, making the corridors deeper and smoothing hard edges in such a way as to form characteristic “flowing” shapes in the rock.

We’re so fortunate to have spent an afternoon walking through and photographing one of our country’s beautiful natural wonders.
