Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Show us what ephemeral means to you.

This image was taken 2 weeks while touring the Lower Antelope Canyon in Northern Arizona. The Antelope Canyon is unlike anything I've ever seen. It is absolutely breathtaking and pictures don't do it any justice.  Lower Antelope Canyon, called Hazdistazí, or "spiral rock arches" by the Navajo, is located a few kilometers away. Prior to the installation of metal stairways, visiting the canyon required climbing along pre-installed ladders in certain areas. Even following the installation of stairways, it is a more difficult hike than Upper Antelope—it is longer, narrower in spots, and even footing is not available in all areas. At the end, the climb out requires several flights of stairs. Despite these limitations, Lower Antelope Canyon draws a considerable number of photographers, though casual sightseers are much less common there than in Upper. (No longer the case) The lower canyon is in the shape of a "V" and shallower than the Upper Antelope. Lighting is better in the early hours and late afternoon. (Wikipedia)

      1. 🙂 Also, swing by at Horshoe Bend and Lake Powell which aren’t too far away from the Antelope Canyon in case it’s not in your itinerary yet. It’s also worth doing the antelope boat tour from Lake Powell. Enjoy your trip and safe travels! 🙂

      2. Oh, and in regards to food, I recommend Big John’s Texas Barbeque along Lake Powell Blvd if you like bbq. You can have a good dinner while enjoying some music as they have a mini concert in front of the restaurant. Enjoy!!! 🙂
