Panoramas of the World

Antelope Lower Canyon

The Antelope Canyon in the near vicinity of Page is under Navajo administration and therefore does not belong to the US national parks. A visit to the ravines is worthwhile. This panorama photo was taken in the Lower Antelope Canyon.

Compared to the Upper Canyon, the Lower Canyon is much narrower. The best time to visit is in the morning, since then the beam of light is best. This “slot ravine” impresses particularly by its elutriations. Thus, unusual forms and colours developed. However, these ravines are extremely dangerous. More than 20 tourists drowned in a flood wave, which resulted from a distant thunderstorm, in 1997. The emergency exits in the Lower Canyon were installed shortly thereafter.
