Lower Antelope Canyon, on Navajo land near Page, Arizona
Named Hazdistazí, “spiral rock arches” by the Navajo, Lower Antelope Canyon has its own multi-faceted intricacy of eroded sandstone and extraordinary colors. Longer, narrower, and more twisting and winding than the Upper Antelope Canyon, this lower canyon is set deeper, requiring climbing both down and up to discover its unique convolutions and variations. Sandwiched between towering carved sandstone walls, softened by reflected sunlight, and punctuated by isolated sunbeams, the cathedral like atmosphere invokes a sense of the harmony and spirituality attributed to these canyons by generations of Navajos. The Canyon is a symphony of color, shape, and texture, where the rocks themselves seem to be almost translucent and your venture through them a spiritual experience.
