Antelope Canyon offers amazing photo opportunities between sculpted sandstone walls with a walkable corridor at the bottom of the canyon floor. It was formed by flash flood waters that rushed into the cracks of the Navajo sandstone along with the power of wind erosion. With the penetration of daylight through the narrow opening from the top different kinds of light reflections and colors can be seen and enjoyed. This amazing color makes this area a popular location for photographers and tourists. Both Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon will be available today.
