Summer Trip 2017 - Antelope Canyon

Hey Readers,

Get ready, I went way over my 10-15 picture limit on this post.  We woke up fairly early in Page and headed out because there are certain hours that the light is much better in Antelope Canyon than other hours.  Plus we did not have reservations and we wanted to get there early enough to get on a tour.  The only way to see Antelope Canyon is on a tour.  The canyon land in on the Navajo Indian Reservation land and so you have to pay a fee to enter the land, and they will not allow you to go through the canyons without a Navajo guide.  

The first guide that we talked to was fully booked.  So we found another guide and signed up for a 10 am tour....that is pretty close to the magic hour for the lighting in the canyons.  Since we had an hour of so, we went to the store and got some fruit, wrote some postcards, and got some ice for our cooler. 

We headed back to the staging area for the tours and waited for our guide.  It got to be time to go and no joy.  So we went in and asked and we had been waiting in the wrong area.  So we were assigned a new guide and headed off.  Because of our mix up it ended up just being the guide and Celeste and me on the tour.  It made it nice because it was lots easier to get photos without a lot of people to shoot around.  Our guide was a young woman who is in college to be a nurse.  She was outstanding, helped us get good setting on our cameras to get the best effect.  

After leaving Antelope Canyon we headed to our next stop Moab.  

More about that tomorrow.
