    Antelope Canyon  

    Most-visited and most-photographed slot canyon in the American Southwest.

    Frequently subject to flash floods, Antelope Canyon can only be visited through guided tours because of the extreme danger. Still, it has managed to become the most-photographed and most-visited slot canyon in all of the American Southwest due to its beauty.

    Formed by millions of years of wind and water erosion, Antelope Canyon’s magnificent smooth and flowing shaped sandstone has made it one of the most famous slot canyons in the world.

    Located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation in Arizona, Antelope Canyon is actually two separate canyons, the upper canyon and lower canyon. (We will visit the LOWER Antelope Canyon)

    Horseshoe Bend is one of those rare places that is absolutely breathtaking, yet it is accessible to people of all hiking skill levels. A very short hike off a highway takes you to the top of a cliff overlooking Horseshoe Bend and the Colorado River over 1100 feet below.

    Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona. Horseshoe Bend is located 5 miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell.

    Zion National Park “Utah's First National Park” is a southwest Utah nature preserve distinguished by Zion Canyon’s steep red cliffs.

    Located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave Desert regions, the park has a unique geography and a variety of life zones that allow for unusual plant and animal diversity. Numerous plant species as well as 289 species of birds, 75 mammals (including 19 species of bat), and 32 reptiles inhabit the park's four life zones: desert, riparian, woodland, and coniferous forest. Zion National Park includes mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons, and natural arches.

    Bryce Canyon Red Rocks, Pink Cliffs, and Endless Vistas

    Over two million visitors come to experience the otherworldly magic of Bryce Canyon National Park each year. Bryce Canyon National Park in Southwestern Utah is famous for the largest collection of hoodoos (the distinctive rock formations) in the world. Bryce Canyon’s red-orange-pink amphitheaters stage a Norse myth 70 million years in the making. The park’s main road leads past the expansive Bryce Amphitheater, a hoodoo-filled depression lying below the Rim Trail hiking path. It has overlooks at Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and Bryce Point. Prime viewing times are around sunup and sundown. Nowhere else in the world can you find rock pinnacles with fantastic shapes like the ones found in Bryce Canyon National Park. Located in the High Plateaus region of the Colorado Plateau in Utah, Bryce Canyon’s elevation, erosion, climate and rock type are all elements that, when combined, form fantastical shapes called Hoodoos.
