Lower Antelope Canyon

Our first stop on our road trip was Lower Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona. Last year we went to Upper Antelope Canyon. These slot canyons are amazing. Thousands of years of wind, sand and rain created these canyons. The textures, colors and shapes are just amazing. Compared to the Upper Canyon, this one is much more difficult to manuver through. I wish I could have watched Mike Jones squeezing through some of the tight spots with all his gear!

 

In August of '97 a flash flood caught tourists in this canyon. Eleven people drowned. Seven were from France, 2 from the U.S., one from England and one from Sweden. I can only imagine how terrifying it must have been.
