We just completed our 2 day exploration of  the quaint small town of Page, AZ. What it lacks in cosmopolitan city style, it makes up for in some of the most beautiful landscape and geological anomalies I have ever seen.

We started our first day with an early trip to lower antelope canyon…one of many slot canyons in the area formed by water and wind. This was by far one of the most surreal places I have ever experienced. Each bend we went around and crevice we came upon was more beautiful than the last.

It’s a protected site and you can only visit with a native guide. We were toured by sitting buffalo who is the great great great grandson of sitting bull. He knew all the best spots for magical photos.

We also experienced the water side of the canyons by hopping on a boat tour of Lake Powell and the winding waterways.

It was hard to believe how close to the walls the boat got as the canyon narrowed and the walls climbed higher and higher.

Our last stop on our way out of page was the overwhelming horseshoe bend. Besides giving me a bit of vertigo, it was awe inspiring. This horseshoe shaped curve of the Colorado river is a very unique switchback part of the river with high overlook cliffs.

Needless to say the high desert of Arizona did not disappoint. I would recommend everyone pilgrimage to this magical place once in their life.
