The Upper Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona has been on my bucket list for quite some time. To be honest, it still is since I have every intention to go back!

Slot canyons have a way of making your jaw drop. The feeling of standing between their tall, narrow walls is simply amazing. Part of me felt the view I was taking in was an illusion; as if there was no way I was standing where I was. I know I mentioned this before when speaking about the Lower Antelope Canyon; I had a tendency to walk through the slot canyon with my hands grazing the walls, reminding me my surroundings were real.

To gain access to the Upper Antelope Canyon, you are required to obtain a permit and travel with a guided tour group. I chose the Adventurous Antelope Canyon Photo Tours. Since my visit was somewhat last minute, the only tour available the day I was in town did not allow tripods. I was a bit bummed to leave my tripod behind, since the slot canyon is quite dark and long exposures are ideal. I did, however, manage to capture a handful of sharp photographs handheld. All the more reason to go back and visit again, with a tripod!

If you find yourself in Page, Arizona or are planning to travel to the Arizona and Utah border, I highly recommend spending a day exploring slot canyons in the area. Being at the bottom of those tall walls is an amazing experience!
