Colorful Antelope Canyon of Arizona

This is one of the many images of the slot canyons in the Antelope Canyon in northern Arizona we have.  The slot canyons in the desert southwest are run by the Navajo Indians and tourist come here by the truck loads to see these stunning canyon walls as the sandstone has been carved out over time by wind, rain, and flooding that occur yearly.   Every time of year when you visit brings on a different color and look to the to the canyon walls so it worth a visit anytime of year.

Only a gleam of light now exposes the carved out area of the slot canyon. The Upper Antelope Canyon is visited each year by thousand of tourist since it is the most accessable. It is beautiful to see all the twist and turns of the canyon as you can image as the flash flood run through creating this wonderful twisth and turns giving these wonderful form that we love. It is this forced erosion that creates this delicate erosion of the canyon walls expose there layers of sandstone sediment and create this in turn with the natural light that enters gives these wall there beautiful colors.
