One doesn’t need to travel to Mars or the Moon when otherworldly landscapes exist right here on earth. Just east of Page, Arizona, USA, located in the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation, is a terracotta-coloured slot canyon called Antelope Canyon. Here, you will find the kind of supernatural beauty that, were you to see it in a photograph, would have you crying ‘Photoshop’.
But Photoshopped this place is not. Located just a few hours from the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon consists of two main sections – Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon. Like the Grand Canyon, these two slot canyons have been carved out of the earth by water, but in the case of a slot canyon, that water is of the rushing, roaring kind. Where the Grand Canyon speaks of years of gently flowing waters and tender drama, Antelope Canyon speaks of flash floods and fast, furious spectacle.
