It was hard to decide whether to visit the upper or lower antelope canyon. I've read there's no need to visit both but also that there a lot of differences. We ended up doing both and I'm so glad we did. Our 10am appt for the upper canyon turned out to be a cloudy morning with some rain. The upper is the more popular one. It has an upside down V shape canyon so less light comes in, making it even darker inside when I went. I'm sure if the weather was better the colors in the canyon would have stood out more but the walk was still very beautiful to see in person. Photos for lower canyon in comparison in my next post.
Al contrario di quello che si può comunemente pensare, questo canyon è stato scavato esclusivamente dall'acqua e non dal vento. Quando piove, questa sabbia si indurisce a tal punto da diventare dura quasi come la roccia. Ogni volta che piove questa sabbia viene modellata dall'acqua e dal suo flusso, cambiando così la sua forma, le sue sfumature e i giochi di luce.
Our Arizona trip was full of adventure! It was 4 of us and we rented a car and drove 20 hours in 4 days😱
Day 1 - flew into Phoenix airport and got settled.
Day 2 - woke up early to drive to Page to go see Antelope Canyon.
Day 3- visit Grand Canyon North Rim early in the morning, then head off to Zion National Park in Utah, and then arrive in Vegas for the night!
Day 4- Recover from Vegas, drove to Sedona to explore, and caught a red eye back to Newark NJ airport.
we just signed on another 12 months at our apartment in Scottsdale!!!!! that means the countdown is 🔛 and we have to get back to our Arizona bucket list- and it also means we are finishing decorating 😂 found these babies in Switzerland earlier this month, but couldn’t take them home SOOO now I’m on the lookout for some cute little potted cacti at local nurseries at home!!! 🌵
AZ locals and travelers, what are your favorite things to do/are in the southwest?! so far we’ve done the Grand Canyon, antelope canyon, horseshoe bend, a bunch of hikes in Sedona, and of course camelback!! what else should be on our list?!
