On the actual Memorial Day, our friends Sean and Corey were planning on taking a tour of the Antelope Slot Canyons. They had read that it was ranked high on a list for The Top 10 Places To See Before You Die, so naturally, Alicia and I had to go. We got separated the day before, so that morning we were scrambling trying to get in touch with them. Cell service was sketchy and non-existent the entire weekend, but just as we were leaving Antelope Marina, I got a text from Sean saying they were going on a tour in half in hour. Luckily, Antelope Canyon Tours could accommodate two more, and the four of us got to go together!

|These slot canyons were naturally formed by water that wore down the sandstone.|
I want to say we were at the Upper Canyon whose Navajo name is Tsé bighánílíní, "the place where water runs through rocks." According to Wikipedia, Antelope Canyon is the most-visited and most-photographed slot canyon in the Southwest.
|The sandstone walls felt so smooth. It's incredible to think water designed all of it.|
There's nothing like exploring the good 'ole U.S. of A. The Antelope Slot Canyons are definitely worth experiencing. It is nature at her finest.
I'm a super good videographer, but lower your expectations.
