Upper Antelope Canyon

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.
Was so lucky at one point to have the canyon to myself, peaceful, serene and incredibly beautiful.

    Startling use of light and shadow, this could be wafts of beautiful cloth floating in the wind….

  • It reminded me of red silk floating in the breeze as well, thanks Steve
