Aerial view of Corkscrew Canyon

If you visit Corkscrew Canyon using one of the tour guides in the town of Page they will bring you to this location.  They will drive you a few miles up a sandwash and park at the entrance of this incredible slot canyon.  This aerial photograph shows what to expect.  It's actually a mound of sandstone in the middle of a riverbed that floods during rainstorms.  The slot is about 150yds long.  At the bottom right you can see the riverbed that feeds water through the slot canyon, going North (up). The water then come out the North side where your tour vehicle will park.  This slot canyon is the result of thousands of years of water carving out the slot, making it an incredible photo opportunity at the right time of day, around 11 to 12pm noon, when the shaft of light appears.

Remember, flashlights and water should be brought.  If nobody else is in the canyon (no vehicles present), don't let kids wander into the canyon alone first.  Tour guides  should lead the way with flashlights to make sure all animals are gone (snakes, coyotes, etc.).  It's rare to see them, but it is possible.

During rainstorms you don't want to be in here.  You can see how a river of water going north in the aerial picture above funnels down and through this slot canyon.  The velocity of the water through this slot canyon is very high, something you don't want to experience.  If there is any threat of thunderstorm to the east for as far as you can see, postpone your visit here.   The same goes for the other slot canyon, the Lower Antelope slot canyon near the power generation towers, location shown in this page. The Lower Antelope slot canyon allows you to drive to it, parking is allowed for 2WD cars, no sand wash.  You pay the Indians and admittance fee and then climb down a ladder into the canyon.  You can then hike down the canyon and see some beautiful formations.  This one doesn't require flashlights, but as stated, make sure there are no storms forecasted or storm clouds in the east.  Flash floods can be deadly while in this canyon.
