Antelope Canyon

After going to Antelope Canyon last summer, I am eager to tell you about all the wonderful sights they have to offer!

Antelope Canyon is a beautiful place located east of Page, Arizona. It is open every day of the week, they open up at 8:00 am and close at 4:00 pm, but the tours start at around 8:45 am. In the off-seasons, which is mid-October-mid March, there are no light beams in the canyon, but it is still very beautiful. It is a lot less busy during November-February.

 

There are many different tour options. The prices range from $40-$263; it all depends on what month you are planning to go, what time of day, and what kind of tour you are looking for. But then there is an additional $8 for the Navajo permit that is paid in cash. For example, the upper Canyon tour is  $63, but the Upper antelope canyon night photography tour is $263. 

While in Antelope Canyon, be sure to wear clothes according to the weather. If its summer, wear sneakers, a T-shirt, and shorts. During the colder months, wear sweatpants or leggings, a hoodie, sweatshirt, and sneakers. I would not recommend wearing flipflops or sandals, the floor of the canyon is very dusty.  If you are concerned about where to park, don’t worry! There is a parking lot right by the exhibit.

 

Just remember, there are no backpacks allowed in the canyon, everything that you take into the canyon must be carried. The Canyon has some tight spaces, so having a backpack would not go very well. It is sunny, so you should plan to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat to protect your head, a camera/phone and any other gear that you need to take pictures.

 

Upper Antelope Canyon is absolutely breathtaking with all of the light beams that shine through, so I would highly suggest taking that tour. That tour takes about 1 hour 30 min. The Antelope Canyon photo tour is also very beautiful and all of the tour guides are very helpful and kind. They will help you get the best pictures you could possibly get, and make your experience a lot better.

I hope you decide to go there, and when you do, have a great time!

    I liked the picture you put at the top of the passage.
    I wish you would have told us about what you saw.
    I wonder if I would like the Grand Canyon.

    Good job Kierra! I liked how you organized your essay! I don’t have a wish, but my wonder is why would they name it Antelope Canyon?

    I like the picture you chose, it looks really cool. I wish you talked about how it was formed, it has to be by water to be a canyon, but what river? .I wonder How far it is from the Grand Canyon, it is also in Arizona.
