The Lower Antelope Valley is about 15 minutes from Page City. It is named for its valley below the horizon, and the Upper Antelope Valley. Visiting Antelope Valley basically requires online booking in advance. It is said that the time of 12 noon is the best and the shooting effect is the best. In early February, I did not make an appointment, so I was afraid that it would be too late. Finally, it was about 3 p.m. near Antelope Valley. It was a pity not to go, so I drove over to try my luck and see if I could buy tickets on the spot. Antelope Valley is managed by Indian tribes. There are two companies to organize tours, in fact, each circle a piece of land, repair a bungalow ticket, lounge, toilet finished, the space is the parking lot. We found a casual family and asked if we could buy tickets. It was 3:30, and we could. I'm really lucky, especially after the visit. We have nine people in our group, and we can make another profit by reducing the team price by $2 per person. Buy the tickets and let the Indian guide take us along. The view of Antelope Valley lies not in the eyes, but in the earth, which has been weathered for N years. However, through the cracks in the surface, with the sunshine, coupled with the irregular canyon wall reflection of light, from the lens can leave a beautiful scenery, which is the most admirable. The Upper Antelope Valley is more beautiful. It's basically a photo group. For us to shoot only with mobile phones, the lower Antelope is enough. The tour guide we met is also very good. He knows a few Chinese words and guides us to take pictures. He talks happily all the way and tips us when he comes out. Post a few pictures taken by mobile phone behind, because time is not the best plus amateur level, just to see.
Well, driving or group tours to the west of the United States, Antelope Valley is a good spot to miss! Indian reserve, the annual card of the National Park of the United States is not good, you have to spend extra money! Online booking did not arrive, see strategy said that you can go directly to the queue, go to the consequences, but so on, no reservation, pay directly or enter! Or the golden hour of 11:30 noon (the sun shines directly above the seam at noon, the visual effect is the best)! __________ If you don't know, there's no hole in the ground crevice. I have to sigh that nature is absolutely a paradise for photography. Photographs are good to take, and mobile phones can also take SLR effects. A rare photograph has a much better visual effect than the naked eye.
The Antelope (Lower) Canyon, located in the northernmost part of Arizona, about 30 kilometers from the town of Page, is a dependency of Navajo, the largest tribe of North American Indians. It used to be the habitat of wild antelopes, named for the wild antelopes that often haunt the valleys. Like other narrow canyons, antelope canyons are soft sandstones formed by millions of years of erosion. The main erosion is storm flood erosion, followed by wind erosion. In the monsoon season, torrential floods often flow into the canyon. Because of the sudden increase of rainfall, the torrential floods flow very fast. In addition, the narrow channel reduces the river channel, so the vertical erosion is relatively larger, forming the corridor at the bottom of the gazelle canyon, as well as the hard, smooth and flowing edge of the canyon wall. When the weather is clear, the gorgeous colors can be seen in the canyon, such as fantasy, amazing. The whole Antelope Valley is divided into two scenic spots, the upper and the lower, with similar scenery. The first and last pictures are the entrance and exit of Antelope Valley.

A team of about 20 people, there is a local guide, from the ground has been walking into the bottom of the valley, shuttle in the bottom of the valley, look up, because of the role of light can take beautiful pictures, if it is an iPhone mobile phone, HDR should be turned on, the model with chrome yellow, which is recommended by the guide, try various models, it is really the most praised. The whole journey was over in an hour, but we went in the busy season. There were a lot of people. We waited for more than half an hour before the valley went down. It was very sunny, but we could hardly get sunshine after it went down. The tour guide is very conscientious, waiting for the time to explain to us the formation of the Lower Antelope Valley and the process, at the bottom of the valley will help you choose a good angle to shoot the film, very good!
At that time, when I was walking down, I always shouted to take a picture. It was so beautiful. I was faint when I went down to the bottom of the valley. It was so beautiful. I had never seen such a beautiful valley before. The walls of the cave were colorful and purple. Don't think it was the lighting effect. It was natural color. There would be gaps in some places where the sunshine would shine through, making the cave more dazzling and colorful.
Hidden in the underground canyon, very magical landform, it is worth seeing. When the sunshine goes down at noon and the light goes into the cave to take pictures, there will be bright shadows and colors. The local Indian tour guides lead the tourists to the scenic spots, and they are arranged by others. The tour guide is very good. He knows which position and angle to take good pictures.

We went to Mexico National Park in a self-organized group and were arranged to visit the Upper Antelope Valley. According to the guide, the ticket for Upper Antelope Valley was 20 dollars more expensive than Lower Antelope Valley. The reservation was to enter the valley at 2 p.m. and drive the Indian to the valley mouth. Then we walked around under his guidance. Although we knew little about his explanation, we took beautiful pictures with his advice. Because there are too many tourists, the overall feeling of time is a little rush, on the return bus, we think that the Lower Antelope Valley should be better looking, because the depth is deeper and more time-space tunnel taste, the leader said that the team would not make an appointment to Lower Antelope Valley, and then come back to Lower Antelope Valley to see, attached a few photos of Upper Antelope Valley, we compare the difference between Upper Antelope Valley and Lower Antelope Valley.
