American West Self-driving | The Antelope Canyon that God's hand touched!
Mushroom is finally going to the Antelope Valley today! The name of Antelope Canyon is also very interesting. The Navajos feel that this is a sacred place to communicate with nature. The god they believe in is the most primitive natural mother. Navajo, you may be strange, in other words, Indians, you are certainly no stranger.
For the selection of the upper and lower Antelope Valley, the mushroom that chooses phobia will always be asked, what should I choose? There are 10,000 Raiders on the Internet that recommend you to choose the Antelope Valley because you can see the legendary "Light of God." However, the mushroom that did not take the usual path, chose the Lower Antelope Valley.
The Lower Antelope Valley requires more physical strength than the Upper Antelope Valley. Because the Lower Antelope Valley is mostly a ladder, it needs to be climbed, but because of its unique landform, it can shoot even more amazing exclusive scenery. Therefore, it is more suitable for photographers.
Antelope Valley is so beautiful, the guide will stop at each place where there is a story, detailing the legends of India, and telling everyone the best shooting angle, even personally teaching!

Life must go to the lower Antelope Valley lower antelope canyon
winter sun height angle is low, no matter the upper and lower Antelope Valley, there is no direct sunlight coming in the valley, the upper antelope valley is narrow and wide, the lower antelope valley is wide and narrow, so In winter, the light in the Lower Antelope Valley is better than that in the Upper Antelope Valley, which is more suitable for winter tours. We only chose to visit the Lower Antelope Valley. In the off-season, we don't need to book online in advance, we can buy it directly on the spot. Personally, we don't think it is necessary to choose a photo group that doubles the price. Unexpectedly, there are also a lot of tourists in the off-season, the experience of the tour is not good, and the feeling of catching the ducks is on the shelves. The tour guide will help to adjust the camera to the most suitable mode. The color temperature and cloudy mode will increase the sensitivity. Everyone here is a photographer... It should be noted that you cannot carry a tripod, mobile phone, etc. With a bag. The tour time is about 45 minutes. It is not recommended for elderly and children to go up and down the stairs. It is recommended to carry the US dollar change with you and give the guide a tip after the tour.
There are two companies available to visit the Lower Antelope Valley. The price service is similar. I chose kens tour.
Price: The average group is about 50 per person.
There are several reasons to consider going to the Lower Antelope Valley: there is no light beam even in the Upper Antelope Valley in winter (the light beam only appears in March-September of each year), not to mention the appointment, and there are more people than the Lower Antelope Valley. Considering the selection of the Lower Antelope Valley that does not require an appointment. Of course, if you encounter upstream rainfall, the Lower Antelope Valley is not open because the Lower Antelope Valley is under a desert. When the upper reaches of the water, the downstream of the Antelope Valley is likely to suffer from flash floods. In 1997, 12 tourists entered the Lower Antelope Valley without the guidance of the Indian guide. In the end, they failed to escape the sudden flash floods. Only one life was still alive. So today's Antelope Valley can only be entered under the Indian guide.
About the photography group: The photography team requires everyone to have a tripod, and we both have only one tripod, so we can't report the free movement of the photography group together. So simply two people reported the ordinary group, did not enter with a tripod.
All the way to play down feeling: If you want to take a large film in the Antelope Valley, the quality requirements are extremely high, then it is recommended to report to the photography group; if you just want to visit, take some photos to commemorate, then the ordinary group is enough . If you can meet a good guide like us, then the update is happy, because the normal 1 hour and 15 minutes tour, we actually played definitely more than an hour and a half. Our guides are very patient, with a variety of explanations, gods, guided shooting and more.
The antelope canyon is one of the world's most famous slit-shaped canyons, divided into the upper antelope canyon and the lower antelope canyon.
This used to be an antelope habitat. There are often antelope walks in the canyon, so the name of the Antelope Valley comes from this. Antelope Valley is located in the Indian Protected Area. It is necessary to pay a door-to-door fee of 8 knives and one car to enter the upper and lower Antelope Valley.
Lower Antelope Canyon is one of the world's most famous narrow canyons. It is located in northern Arizona and belongs to the Navajo Native Reserve. There is no artificial light in the valley, all the visible light comes from the cracks at the top of the canyon. The light is then refracted into the bottom of the valley through reflections on the rock texture, producing irregular color changes and a gorgeous multicolored light.
