The Grand Canyon is a big canyon. That much you know. What you may not know is that the Grand Canyon is surrounded by many small canyons. These deep, narrow, vertical canyons were formed over millions of years when certain tributaries of the Colorado River would flood during hard summer rains. Antelope Canyon is an example of such a canyon, a formation known locally as a “slot canyon.” Resembling a cave without a roof, Antelope Canyon is a dreamlike landscape of otherworldy shapes, constantly changing colors and moving shafts of sunlight. Antelope Canyon Tours are very popular and must be booked in advance now.
