Dream Your Ride - Page, AZ and Antelope Canyon

The ride from Mt. Carmel, Utah to Page, AZ is a short one and for our adventure, the shortest ride of the trip.  The goal going through Page was to take a tour of Antelope Canyon, which is a narrow "slot" canyon located about 20 minutes from town.  The draw of the canyon is the beautiful colors of the canyon walls, especially when the sun shines through the top of the canyon.  It's one of the most photographed canyon and yet only became popular 20 years ago.

We chose Antelope Canyon Slot Canyon Tours by Chief Tsosie and we were very happy with the quality of the tour and our guide.  He was informative of the area and knowledgeable about camera settings to get the most out of the canyon.  Getting to the canyon by way of 4X4 was an added bonus.

Glen Canyon Dam Bridge.  As awesome to look at as it is to ride over.

Off-Road at it's best.

 The colors are impressive.

If you're in the Grand Canyon area, take the detour to Page and visit Antelope Canyon.  You'll be glad you did.
