Arizona Day 2: Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon

 

After spending half a day of hiking at Grand Canyon comes another trek the next day, but not as much. It was a little bit more hot but we didn’t drive all the way there to complain. Horseshoe Bend was our first stop for the day and it took us around thirty minutes to finish the trail (that includes the picture-taking part already, which was considerably lengthy).

While everyone was in a rush to arrive at the Horseshoe Bend and get away from the sun, we were just there taking our time with our cameras.

Sidenote: “lampake” in Filipino means someone who doesn’t care. That’s me!

Next stop was the tour at Upper Antelope Canyon. We heard that Lower Antelope Canyon was longer (but narrower) and had nicer rock formations but unfortunately, it was temporarily closed due to the temperature conditions. Upper Antelope wasn’t bad at all though, because the sunbeams in here are more dramatic (better pictures!!).

To say that it was a bumpy ride is an understatement, but we were in for it and luckily, we got there without accidentally dumping any of our belongings.

The tour was either pretty quick or we couldn’t just get enough of the place but we thought we didn’t have sufficient photos at the end of it. In any case, it was one of a kind experience and it’s amazing to hear the story of how all these were formed.
