Artist's Description

This is an image of the entrance to Upper Antelope Canyon (also knows as The Crack), located near the city of Page, Arizona on, you guessed it, Navago land.

The canyon is formed over millions of years by flooding and erosion of sandstone. Rainwater, especially during powerful monsoon season, runs into the extensive basin above the canyon sections, picks up speed and sand as it rushes into the narrow passageways. Over time the passageways inside the canyon walls get eroded making the corridors deeper. The gushing waters also smooth the hard edges in such a way that it forms very beautiful and characteristic “flowing” shapes in the rock as you will see in some of the images to follow.

We were told by the local tour guides that flooding in many canyon sections still occur to this day, with the last large flood occurred in October of 2006. It lasted for about a couple of days and caused the Navago Authorities to close Lower Antelope Canyon for about five months.

Hope you like this image.
