Antelope Canyon

Page, AZ

Landscape

Climbing into the deep slot canyons east of Page, Arizona, visitors glimpse a cast of mythical symbols carved by centuries of desert sandstone through the eyes of Navajo guides. There is an unmistakable awe that overtakes each who come to walk this narrow path, a feeling mirrored by the majesty of all creation, infinite in wonder, unshaken by man’s opinions. Tiptoeing through the canyon will take you back in time, imagining how these smooth edges and striated rings of age coalesce into a memory only the earth itself could keep. It is the Navajo way of life to protect and honor the earth in all its endowed dignity, and within these canyons they who steward this land remind us to consider the nature of the universe, of time and space, creation, growth, and the life cycle of all things.
