Antelope Canyon, the Mild Touch of Millenniums
Antelope Canyon is located on Navajo land near Page Arizona, in the American Southwest. It has two slot canyon sections – Upper and Lower Antelope, each one containing amazing passages carved in sandstone due to flash flooding and other sub-aerial processes. Usually, in the monsoon season, rainwater infiltrates in these canyons, picking up speed as it rushes into the passageways. Without a doubt, Antelope Canyon is one of the most thrilling and breathtaking destinations, but it also represents a danger for tourists. People are attracted by the canyon’s beautiful lights and shapes. Photographers are the most common visitors, although taking pictures in the Antelope Canyon is difficult due to the wide exposure range made by light reflections (10 EV or more). The access is allowed only through guided tours offered by Navajo Tribal Park, because Antelope Canyon is a very unpredictable place, with a high risk of flood.
