this was Antelope canyon, i think it was the lower canyon if i remember correctly.

I would definitely go back, and the nice thing is they will let you take a tripod down there. If i had known at the time, i would have taken mine with me. They will also let you go in alone to take pictures after you do the tour if you want, and you can take as much time as you like.

I know a lot more about photography now then i did when i was in there, so i really want to go back and get better shots. That whole area is very unique. Starting from the Grand Canyon over to Paige arizona is beautiful and interesting coloured rock faces, and then from Paige Arizona up towards Moab Utah is all different colours and neat monuments (natural formations) and then in the distance you start to see mountains again.

it's right on the border or just about. And yes, there's upper and lower antelope canyon.

it was definitely worth going too, but if you're on a time limit, it can definitely be an issue, I pretty much zig zagged all over the southwest. Hit route 66 a few times, and got to see some interesting things.

I need to go through all my pictures again sometime soon and see what's what.

Love this picture! I need to travel more...

Good one, you should have put your sig in the upper windshield.
That frames out really nicely.

Nice, everything clean and green.
I need to remove some machine swirl mark that the dealer put on.

Went to the library and you can see the influence of
Glenn Seaborg who donated quite a bit of money to the project.
The colors come partially from the coatings on the disks.
