So there are places in Southwest that are the must visit. The Antelope Canyon is one of them. The impossible out of planet red slot canyon has the massive number of visitors. It was photographed billion of times and became known around the world.
Actually, Antelope is drainage that goes to the Lake Powell and forms several sections of narrows. Two of them are the most known: Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons. Antelope is on Navajo Land, and one cannot enter it without the permit and the tour.
I knew for long about lines of visitors that wait to visit these slots. And that there are too many people in the canyons. That’s why when I first read about Antelope Canyon X, I knew – it was the chance for me to visit the place. I booked the tour online in advance (see, Navajo knows how to make it easier!). The site of where I booked is www.antelopecanyon-x.com. The Antelope X tour starts near the popular spot. They had a visible sign that is hard to miss, and the description on their web page is very clear.
We parked the car, waited for the jeep to pick up and drive us to the beginning of the trails.
And yes, trails. There two sections of slots that you can visit with the tour. One starts almost from the place where jeep dropped us, the second required some hiking.
The canyon sections are long enough for everyone to find bits of a solitude. Describing all the beauty of the place with words is impossible. I hope that my photos will be able to show at list a part of it.
