It's hard to believe this slot canyon in northern Arizona was almost unknown to the general public until a few decades ago. The Navajo whose land it was on knew of its existence, but it was not until a few photographs of it were publish in the 1980's that it gained notoriety. The Navajo name for Antelope Canyon is Tsé bighánílíní, which means "the place where water runs through rocks." It was formed over the course of hundreds of years as rushing rain water found its way into crevices in soft sandstone rock and eroded away the fragile walls, making deep corridors and smoothing hard edges in such a way as to form characteristic "flowing" shapes in the rock. On a sunny day, the endless bouncing of light creates an endless supply of photographic opportunities.
