Angels landing is a obvious place to visit when you go to Zion national park. Most people stopped at the end of the paved trail, but thats where the best part of the trip started. The last part is steep on both sides. We met several people on the way clinging to the chain that was put up for safety. When we got to the top the view was amazing. We also got to meet the squirrels living up on the top 😃.
After visiting Antelope Canyon in Page Arizona we headed north and after a few hours drive we entered the stunning Zion national park in Utah. The park looks like its taken straight out of a Disney cartoon or a ferytale. The first day we went up to the Emerald pools. A short hike for a fiew hours. As Norwegians we was not used to paved trails and was happy to find a small trail more like we are used to. It ended out to be a long detour in the cactus wastelands. Note to self. The trail is paved all the way...
Some more pictures from the amazing Antelope canyon near Page in Arizona. Before the tour starts we always get a traditional dance from the Native Indians. In the last picture you can see the entrance of upper Antelope canyon. As you see it was cold there that day. Look at my latest posts to see more pictures from this amazing place.
The heart of Antelope Canyon. This picture is taken almost straight opwards in the cave. The experienced guides love to take photos themselves and give many good tips on how to get the good pictures. They tell you where to stand an where to aim, so its possible for most people to get good results. Because of all the sand in the cave its not reccomended to change lenses during the tour. A fixed wideangle or wideangle zoom is recomended. I used a fixed 14mm f/2,8 with good luck. If you also participate at one of the phototours you get more time and are not only able to, but must bring a tripod. Sadly i had to go on s traditional tour where tripod was not allowed.
Its hard to capture the true beauty of this amazing place. (Altough its easy to capture small parts of it) Antelope Canyon outside of Page in Arizona is just marvelous and a must to visit when you are in the area. This is the view of «The Candle» in upper Antelope Canyon wich is photographed for the first time 😜
