Located a few minutes drive outside of Page lies a spectacle of the South West. With popularity ranging from out-of-the-box computer backgrounds, to the most expensive photograph ever sold, i.e. “Phantom”. The big deal sits in two slot canyons (upper, and lower), given the names Antelope due to their previous occupancy by Pronghorn ‘antelope’. Though none live there now.
Getting there: Visitors to Page should have no trouble finding Antelope Canyon, as the town isn’t very big, and there aren’t very any roads into or out of the area; the main two being 89, and 98. The upper and lower canyons do straddle road 98, so make sure you’ve gone to the intended one you wish to visit. Those with GPS can follow this link for directions.
Reservations: You want them, the canyons are narrow, meaning small; which limits how many people can go in each group; limiting the total amount of people visiting per day. Walking up to get on a trip can be fierce, requiring a long queue, and a lot of flexibility in your schedule; and personally more pain than it’s worth. There are a myriad of tour companies that will take you into the Canyons; either based on site, or based in Page with rides to the sites offered.
The tours offered are round about, leading you to the far end of the canyon, and returning you to the check-in kiosk by tours end. Guides are great with questions, facts, and leadership; even showing the best ways to set up cameras to capture the lighting.
