Next stop on this road trip to Texas is Arizona. Here we spent a couple days to see Horseshoe Bend (during sunrise and sunset) and the Lower Antelope Canyon.
This was maybe my second favorite stop of the whole trip. There is so much natural beauty in the world and I’m glad I finally got to see it. I decided to take my time traveling to Texas. I took one day to rest in Arizona and then went on to see Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon. However, if you’re pressed for time you can do both in one day!
Some general tips when planning your trip to Arizona:
- Schedule tour of Antelope Canyon ahead of time. There are two tour places you can schedule with. The canyons are on an Indian reserve so there is no other way to see them. The cost is about $25 each.
- Schedule your tour at a time where the light is shining pretty bright (sunrise perhaps?). This will give your pictures while inside the canyons a very nice, natural glow.
- My friends recommended Lower Antelope over Upper Antelope, however the decision is up to you. The Lower Antelope canyon is shorter.
- Horseshoe Bend is free and you can visit at many times as you like. There will be a lot of people, but getting picture should not be a problem. We were able to go early in the morning before the sun rose and there were only a few people there. However, the sun sets behind Horseshoe Bend.
- The weather can be extreme, as well as, dry. Constantly look at weather updates and prepare accordingly.
Whatever you decided to do and however you decide to do it I highly recommend taking pictures. This is one of the parts of your trip that you will never want to forget. It boggles my mind how something so beautiful was formed out of the natural occurrence of rain and water.
