We headed out of Page, AZ about 15 minutes toward our tour of Antelope Canyon and Rattlesnake Canyon. Our tour operator was fantastic! http://www.navajoantelopecanyon.com/tours.html
They had covered suburbans (other groups had open truck bed seats). Why is this important? It’s windy, sandy, and cold.
The morning we started out at Rattlesnake Canyon.
After exploring this amazing wave canyon, we headed over to upper antelope canyon. There were a bunch of photographers in our group, so we got to see the magic in making/creating beautiful shots with the light.
We headed to lunch at this awesome Texas BBQ joint! I was at home immediately.
It was roughly a three hour drive from Page, AZ to the Grand Canyon south rim. After seeing all the smaller slot canyons, the Grand Canyon was astonishingly gigantic and stunning!
Caught the iMax movie on the Grand Canyon. It had some nice aerial shots. Dinner was the local pizza joint called We Cook Pizza and Pasta. Just delicious!
We packed up from the watchman campground and headed for a hike to lower emerald pools before a drive thru the tunnel.
We thought about hitting vermillion / Pariya canyon to catch The Wave. But it was kind of out of the way without permits. 5 mile hike roughly 6hr… It would look a lot like valley of fire from day 1. Google it.
Headed out to Glen Canyon Dam which was definitely a spectacle to see.
After the dam, we headed out to Horseshoe bend for a magnificent sight! Worth it for sure!
We looked for atv activities but couldn’t find any around the Page, AZ area… So we hit up a quality establishment… The Bowl! Pool, bowling, and fooseball!
Liquor and ammo on that last pic. Need I say more?
