Photographer's Note

This is inside Upper Antelope Canyon, famous for its slots carved into swirling sandstone. The slot portions are so narrow that in some places a person can stretch out his arms and touch both sides.

The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tsebighanilini, which means "the place where water runs through rocks". Although dry for most of the year, Antelope Canyon runs and sometimes floods with water after rains. It is this water, slowly wearing away the sandstone grain by grain, that has formed the beautiful, graceful curves in the rock.
