A while ago we went to see Antelope Canyon using a Groupon.
I highly recommend going to Antelope Canyon and if you can use a Groupon…
by all means do it!
A driver from Blue Feather Tours picked us and a few friends up in Flagstaff, AZ.
He drove us to Page, AZ but with a few pit stops along the way.
First Stop was Horseshoe Bend near Lake Powell.
(Side note… this is the trip where I began to have a major dislike for selfie sticks. People use them not only for selfies but to get 4 feet higher. Many of my shots were ruined because of a selfie stick. It’s exactly why National Parks have banned them. The Navajos are very close to doing so as well.)
After Horseshoe Bend we stopped for lunch which was provided for by the tour company. It was quite good and we sat and looked at this.
Off we went to a Page parking lot to wait for our Navajo to take us to Antelope Canyon. The Navajos are your private tour guides for Antelope Canyon as it is on the Navajo Reservation.
Our entertainment is a Navajo Hoop Dance while we wait. He was amazing!
We arrive and so do many other tours!
Yes it was crowded… but we were in a small group and our Navajo Guide made sure we stopped and got our shots.
Thanks for coming along for the tour.
Happy Friday and have a fabulous weekend!
Until Next Time ~Nancy

I love Page and the upper and lower Antelope Canyon. Glad you went!
I remembered seeing your pictures and asking you for advice. THANK YOU!
Spectacular place. When the light hits it it looks like another planet. Great photos.
I agree with you! Thank You for coming over for a visit!
I thoroughly have enjoyed my visit to you and your sister’s blog! You both have a great sense of humor, and eye for photography and such awesome wisdom!
Fantastic photos. You seriously don’t want to be in those narrow canyons when a flash flood washes through.
Oh yes… it gets quite deep in there! Scary deep!
Stunning photos. It looks like a wonderful adventure. 🙂 I can’t discuss selfie sticks, it would turn into a rant so I’ll save you. 🙂
I hear you… I also tried to make my rant very short. Thank you for stopping by and going on the tour with me.
Excellent! I really wanted to visit Antelope Canyon when we were camped in Page, but the weather was less than agreeable. I’ll keep trying.
Ingrid… you will love it. I need to get over to your blog. I need to see where you are at and what trouble you have gotten into!! 😉
I actually have wifi today! Hooray!!
Unfortunately no trouble to be had as I’m laying low recovering from a MILD case of Valley Fever 🙁
OH NO!! Hugs to you baby girl!
love this posting
Thank You Sister Friend! 🙂
It was a gorgeous place!
We do need to do this tour the next time we are in the area. Everyone’s photos are so beautiful. Love all your gorgeous shots of the beauty:) It doesn’t look like there is anyone around.
I have so many pictures of this place but it could have gotten a bit ridiculous if I posted them all. You really need to go, Pam. But please try to go with a small group… it truly is the better way.
Fantastic photos! Places like these always make me wonder what it must have been like to come across them when the area was unmapped wilderness. It must have really felt like stepping into another, mystical world.
Oh what a fabulous thought! I was truly amazed of how beautiful this place was. I now would like to go to the lower slot.
Play of light in the rock formations was stunning. Thanks!
Thank you for visiting!
Wow! I have never heard of Antelope Canyon before. What great pictures. I definitely want to go there.
It is absolutely beautiful! Please try to go. Thank You for popping over to see the pictures… a fun place to photograph.
Antelope Canyon is amazing, Nancy, and you captured it so purely.
Yes to Elvis’ profile. Indeed.
And, Nancy, the Fire and Your Favorite? I think they are sensuous photos reminding me of lovers bringing the heat into their souls.
Great post, with passionate picture work. I’m glad the shot of you doing what you love is the capper, too. <3
We really love Page and Antelope Canyon. Great photos!
It truly is an amazing place! Thanks for enjoying the photos.
Another place I’d love to visit. In the meantime I’ll have to make do with your amazing photos.
Your sweet words are so appreciated. Thank You!
It was an amazing place and very much like another planet.
Envious yes I am!!! I wanna goooooooooooo!!!!!!
You would LOVE!
I know!!! Oh the frustration of longing to see and photograph so many places
What a great idea…incredible pictures. Probably not the best time to think about going with monsoon, so do you think it would make more sense in the winter???
Oh yes! They will cancel with a slight threat of rain.
So best to plan for the winter… plus it’s cooler too.
The beauty of that canyon is just incredible….again thanks for sharing!
I saw this post on my iPhone when Dean was surfing one day and I forgot to comment when I got home. Silly me. As usual I love your photos and laughed so much at the Elvis Presley Profile.
I have done that many times myself!
Thanks for coming over to visit!
I think you really captured the ‘Antelope Experience’ so well. You peeled it off in layers from the beautiful ride up, the selfie stick , the always a shock of the ‘shared’ experience, the flash flood consideration priorities, and that moment when you are standing there in/with and the whole world consists of you and the slots and you can’t imagine your camera can capture it.
Well….your camera sure captured it. Well done Nancy!
What a fabulous synopsis of my most amazing day there! YOU, my dear have such a beautiful way with words.
I am on my phone and wifi is iffy. I need to catch up with you and your novel. I will when I am able my friend!
No ugly word could possibly be said of Antelope Canyon. Turn that phone off right now and get into that lake!
Thank You! Hope all is well with you!
