Antelope Canyon
Upper Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon that is almost entirely enclosed from the top. The small amounts of light that gets in illuminates the walls and makes them glow. Since Upper Antelope Canyon is part of the Navajo Nation, they require a guide to bring you to the canyon. The best rates are found by going to the entrance to the Indian reservation site near the powerplant and signing up for a guide with the Indian family that lives there. The extra benefit of signing up with them is that you get to also visit Rattlesnake Canyon, which only they have the permits to bring visitors to.
