Slot Canyon Options
- Upper Slot Canyon
- Lower Slot Canyon
Visiting the Lower Antelope Canyon
Walking down the steep metal stairs into Lower Antelope Canyon is like being transported to another world.
It is truly magical the way time and water carved the slot canyons. Visiting the canyons has been on my bucket list for years and it did not disappoint.
We went with Dixie Ellis Tour and had four other people with us on our tour. Our guide was very informative. He was very willing to give photography tips and showed us all the great views and angles when inside the canyon.
If you are taking the lower canyon tour you can expect to walk from the parking lot to the canyons and then climb up and down multiple staircases.
