2018 Road Trip - Page, AZ: Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon

Horseshoe Bend

First stop, just outside Page.  Following a hot, three quarter hike loaded with tourists,  there's the Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River.  This is on the South Rim, before the National Park.

The Colorado River is 800 feet straight down.  There are no fences or railings.

I don't like heights, and I got these two shots by crawling on my hands and knees to the edge.  Some people aren't so careful.  Check out this article about a man who went over the edge in May.

Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon is on Navajo territory.  All viewing of it is through various tour companies.  We used Antelope Slot Canyon Tours and were very happy with our tour.  The slot canyons are very narrow, and the beauty comes from the light filtering down to the bottom.

The transportation from Page to the canyon.

The Canyon

Later in the day we also took a boat tour of Lake Powell.  It was OK, but anything would have been a letdown after the morning's tour.

We had two meals at Big John's BBQ.  Great place.
