A tour you will never ever forget

About 6 miles from the town of Page, AZ you can hike through Antelope slot canyon that many call "Corkscrew Canyon".  The best time to visit is in the summer on days when the weather forecast indicates no chance of rain.  At around 11am to noon there's a beam of light that peers down into the slot that offers an incredible photo opportunity.  No other time of day offers this "light shaft", so check with the tour company to make sure you don't miss it unique photo opportunity as shown below.

This beautiful canyon is on Indian land.  In the past you could pay the Navajo Nation $10/person to take your own 4WD vehicle to this tourist site.  But not anymore, only an authorized tour company can take you there now.   Tour shuttles with narration go for around $32/adult, $16/kid and they leave from the town of Page, AZ. Click here to inquire about tour times and tour company location.

It's about a 200yd. hike through the canyon which opens up on the other side of the mountain into another sand wash.   There is no climbing required for this tour, you're just walking on flat sand inside the slot canyon.  Pictures below show the entrance from the outside and the inside.  For the best photos bring your tripod to accommodate long shutter exposures in low light conditions.

You won't find Corkscrew Canyon on any map, it's a well kept secret for those who haven't been there.  But you can see an aerial satellite view of it right here and it's location if you CLICK HERE.

During Summer around noon you can see this beam of light shine down through the top of this canyon to the sandy floor.  Put the family in this Sun Beam picture and you'll have a true keepsake photo.
