The Twisting Wall of a Slot Canyon

Looking up from the floor of Antelope Canyon (a slot canyon located in the American Southwest) at the smooth and swirling sandstone walls created over thousands of years by fast moving water from flash floods. The sunlight filtering down the curved sandstone walls makes magical, constantly changing patterns and shadows in many subtle shades of color. The walls rise up about 110 ft. from the floor of the canyon. The view straight up is spectacular and almost other-worldly. Deep violets and fiery reds give way to pink, orange and finally yellow and gold near the top of the opening.
