Technically it’s orange under direct sunlight, but hear us out: Antelope Canyon takes on a deep, earthy shade of purple when it’s in the shade or low lighting. And if we may say, it’s basically the definition of a Swirly Twirly Wonderland™. Here, beams of light flow through iconic slot canyons, unveiling a world in between the carved rock. While the entire scene is pretty much Instagram famous at this point, you can still run away from the selfie stick holders and “do it for the gram” bros if you venture off the beaten path a little bit.
Antelope is the most visited slot canyon in the Southwest, partly because it is easily accessible, but also because it’s extremely beautiful with just the right combination of depth, width, length, ambient light, and orangey-red rock color. With two separate canyon sections — upper and lower — you’ve got some exploration cut out for you.
