Journey to American Southwest: Lower Antelope Canyon (PT.2)

5 hours from Las Vegas, 2 hours from Zion National park, and 2 hours from Grand Canyon National park, is where Antelope Canyon located. We visited the Horseshoe Bend and Zion National park. For our last stop, we were going to Lower Antelope Canyon. We had to book a tour prior to going to the canyon. It cost about 40 USD per person for a 1-hour tour with a maximum capacity of 10 people per tour.  We were not allowed to bring our backpacks, so we just carried our DSLR. The tour was packed and we had to move faster since there was another tour behind us.

Lower Antelope Canyon situated below the ground. The tour required descending and ascending a series of ladders, and stepping over a few boulders. As soon as we enter the canyon, my jaw dropped on the floor. The changing color wall of the canyon, the texture looks absolutely incredible. It has been created for millions of years by flash floods and erosion, slowly carving and sculpting the sandstone into forms, textures, and shapes which we see today. There were some areas inside the canyon where you have to go through a narrow passageways hat can make you feel claustrophobic.  you will be constantly amazed seeing the texture and colors inside the canyon. I highly recommend visiting Lower Antelope Canyon. If you are going to visit Grand Canyon, this is definitely a must-see.

Here are some photos from our trip.

 

Live to the fullest,
