Looking for a place to go for Summer Vacation?
Try the Antelope Canyon. Antelope Canyon is a favorite destination for tourists from all over the world. A major attraction are the light beams formed from the opening at the top of the canyon. Light Beams are much more common in Upper than in Lower Canyon because the lower canyon is underground.The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon means “the place where the water takes a picture of itself.”The Antelope Canyon was formed by the destruction of Navajo Sandstone, primarily due to flooding. Flooding in the canyon still occurs. The last flood occurred on October 30, 2006, and lasted 36 hours, causing the Lower Antelope Canyon to close for five months. Some of the pictures below will show the beauty of the canyon and how the canyon can form images by its light beams.
