Signing in at the office

About to enter the Upper Antelope Canyon after a *very* bumpy ride in a 4-wheeler with no air

Tourists included for perspective. The walls of the canyon rise as high as 120 feet. It's somewhat dark, too, so all of these photos are time exposures, some as long as 90 seconds.

The slot canyon was (and continues to be) created by flash flooding and the sheer power of water

Strange passage

Antelope Canyon is a protected area on sacred Navajo land. The Navajo peoples were said to
have used the privacy and energy of this canyon as a haven for renewing spiritual energy.
The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tse’ bighanilini, which means “the place
where water runs through rocks."
