A short visit to Northwest Arizona

I recently stayed a few days in Page, AZ. The purpose was primarily to visit Antelope Canyon, a "slot canyon" located on Navajo Tribal land. The interest of the place is the effect of erosion on the reddish sanstone, and the play of light on the walls and the floor, though this last is more visible in summer than fall or spring.

We went on for a very short look at the Grand Canyon, and at Zion Park in Utah on the way back. I will show my photos over the next few days.
