Postcards from Antelope Canyon

By Sugar Lane - Monday, June 27, 2022

Hace unas semanas os hablaba de mi visita al Gran Cañón del Colorado y el mirador de la Herradura. El Gran Cañón se puede ver desde muchos miradores a lo largo de su recorrido, pero elegimos el remoto lugar de la herradura porque era el que quedaba al lado del Cañón del Antílope, al que yo tenía muchísimas ganas de ir. Y la verdad es que no me decepcionó, incluso me gustó más que el Gran Cañón! Así que aquí os dejo algunas imágenes, que son un festival de formas, luces y colores!

A few weeks ago I told you about my Grand Canyon visit. You can admire this amazing canyon from many view points,  but we chose the remote Horseshoe Bend, since it was the closest to Antelope Canyon, which had been in my bucket list for a while. And it did not dissapointed,  I actually liked it better than the Grand Canyon! So here are some pictures of this shape, light and color party!

 
 
El estrecho cañón se encuentra bajo este suelo, a unos kilómetros del pueblo Page. Solamente se puede llegar hasta aquí en furgoneta con un tour contratado a alguna de las empresas turísticas autorizadas por los Indios Navajos, que son quienes cuidan del cañón.

The narrow canyon is below this ground, a few miles away from Page town. You can only get there by van with one of the authorized tour agencies managed by the Navajos, who take care of the canyon.


 





 
Según te adentras en el cañón los colores de la piedra van cambiando reflejando la luz que se filtra, pasando del naranja que contrastaba con el cielo azul a la entrada, a tonos más rojizos y rosas que se van mezclando con violetas, morados e incluso azules. 

As you enter the canyon, the colors of the stone walls change reflecting the light, from the bright orange under the blue sky, to red and pink shades that mix with lilacs, purples and even indigo blue.
 

 


 





 
Como cuando fuimos había pocas visitas por la pandemia, tras acabar el recorrido por el cañón principal, nuestra guía nos llevó a un segundo cañón al lado, que era un poco más dificil de transitar, pero mereció la pena. En algunas zonas el cañón se estrecha tanto que apenas caben los pies, e incluso hay que subir y bajar desniveles, para lo que a mí me faltaban manos, pero con algo de ayuda pude atravesarlo.

There were not many visitors when we were there so, after walking through the main canyon, our guide took us to a second canyon nearby, which was a little harder to walk in, but absolutely worth it. It was so narrow in some parts that there was hardly any space to place our feet, and you have to go up and down almost climbing at some point, but I could manage. with some helping hands...


 









 
Una experiencia única y que, sin ninguna duda, os recomiendo que viváis en persona. Qué os ha parecido?  Conocíais el Cañón del Antílope? Os gustaría visitarlo?

A unique experience I reccommend to live in. person without a doubt. What do you think? Had you heard about Antelope Canyon? Would you like to visit?
