Just outside the town of Page, in the state of Arizona, a narrow and unimpressive entrance leads into the mysterious world of Antelope Canyon. The small Antelope Creek River, that is infrequently fed by additional water, has throughout the course of thousands of years, cut a fascinating canyon into the red sandstone and created a natural work of art.
For thousands of centuries, Antelope Canyon lay undiscovered until in 1931, a 12 year old Navajo Indian girl accidentally discovered the entrance to the canyon while herding sheep. Her discovery led to one of the most impressive slot canyons in the United States.
The incredible patterns on the swirling, wave-like rock were once covered by torrents of water and now, they are so smooth and perfectly shaped that they are like an artistic sculpture. During the day, the impressive and colorful play of light and shadow constantly conjures up new visual wonders.
Antelope Canyon is often praised as a masterpiece of nature and it is undoubtedly, its unearthly beauty that provides this mystical canyon with its universal and captivating appeal.
