Antilope Canyon 02.10.2013
Antelope Canyon is an amazing place. It took a while for the water to make it. Time to time in this area there are rains like tropical downpour which last for a day or two. This results into a huge powerful flow of water and the canyon is on its way. So after some time the water made a way in stone and here we are: Antelope Canyon. The walls inside are smooth, like polished. Though that’s not a surprise.
The land is a property of Navajos (so called Native Americans (: ), therefore it's not just a ticket to the canyon, but also a special fee to Indian people. 6$ by the way. Also it's not allowed to visit the place without a guide. According to reviews in the Internet, it really depends on a guy. Some complained, that there was a guide who was telling some boring storing for around half an hour near the entrance and only then allowed to have a free walk inside. In my case we were lucky with a guide. He told very detailed about everything you can imagine, showed everything. Was very cool. And the entrance is about 15 minutes away from the parking. By Jeep.
Canyon from the inside looks like a small rift where almost always is twilight. Around noon there is a sun light which makes extremely beautiful light defractions. If you find the right angle, it might seem that it is a flame. Even though it’s just a sunlight (:
Near the canyon there is a great lake Powell. It looks really fascinating.
