Nature’s splendor in Upper Antelope Canyon

Upper Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona
On my visit to Upper Antelope Canyon, I felt as if I was entering nature’s cathedral. The scene was just as grand as any European cathedral except nature has created this masterpiece rather than a famous architect of days gone by. Sandstone walls arch above in a majestic display of texture and color. Light slips into the canyon from overhead cracks creating a rosy glow. It’s a photographer’s dream come true and one of my favorite boomer travel memories.
Boomer travel tip: Visitors must pay a hiking and permit fee plus be accompanied by a Navajo guide on the two-hour exploration of Upper Antelope Canyon.
Unlike the narrow and sometimes steep path in Lower Antelope Canyon, access to Upper Antelope Canyon is on a wide, level trail. So, if you think that exploring Arizona slot canyons is for the hardy adventurer, think again. This doable experience is one that you don’t want to miss.
