Walking through Upper Antelope Canyon

Have you ever been inside a slot canyon? I had never been, so I was excited to visit the most photographed slot canyon in the world, Antelope Canyon. This particular canyon is located on a Navajo reservation, which means the only way to access it is by going on a tour. Since it was the last tour of the day, there were only ten of us, which meant we were able to take photographs without strangers being in them and enjoy the canyon as if we had the place to ourselves. The ride out to the canyon was extremely bumpy, we were continuously bouncing up and off our bench. It felt adventurous being jiggled around and kicking up so much dust as we barreled down the dirt road.
Once inside the canyon it was one of the most breathtaking sights I have ever seen. The changing light, the carved out walls, it was truly beautiful (these photos don't even begin to do it justice)
