Antelope Canyon:

This is known by the Navajo as “The place where water runs through rocks,” was formed over the course of hundreds of years by water that ran through sandstone. The upper part of the canyon is at around 4,000 feet elevation, with walls that rise 120 feet above its streambed. Few geological formations are as picturesque and awe-inspiring as Antelope Canyon, a magnificent slot canyon just east of Page in Northern Arizona. It is a photographer’s dream, the canyon is known for its wave-like structure and the light beams that shine directly down into the openings of the canyon, creating a super natural appearance. The canyon gets the name from the many pronghorn antelope that used to call it home.

Horseshoe Bend:

This horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River is located near the town of Page, Arizona. It is also referred to as the “East Rim of the Grand Canyon.” The trailhead to this 3/4 mile hike overlooks one of the most spectacular views on the Colorado River in Glen Canyon. It just 4 miles south of the Glen Canyon Dam and 7 miles north of mile zero of the Grand Canyon. The address is Mile Marker 545, Highway 89 Page, AZ. These areas are referred to as “ergs” by geologists and over time, the dunes became petrified and turned into stone. Once the bedrock of this reddish Navajo Sandstone formed, layers of sediment came to rest on top. The layers consist of sandstone, mudstone, calcite, and limestone. This is how the 270-degree bend in the river was created.
