Upper Antelope Canyon – USA Tour 2008

The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tse’ bighanilini, which means “the place where water runs through rocks.” Upper Antelope is at about 4,000 feet in elevation and the canyon walls rise 120 feet above the stream bed.

Though dry most of the year, Antelope Canyon runs, and sometimes floods, with water after rains. It is the water, slowly wearing away the sandstone grain by grain, that has formed the beautiful and graceful curves in the rock. Wind has also played a role in sculpting this fantastic canyon.

    The way the light bounces off the weathered rocks is just sublime and the gorgeous red colours from the rocks are very strong and rich. Just love the way the light shows the erosion of the rocks with the way that it waves.
