12: Antelope Canyon, Arizona
If you plan to see Horseshoe Bend, make it a point to see Antelope Canyon in the same trip! This is what is called a slot canyon, which is a deep, narrow canyon that fills with water during flash floods. When it’s dry, the canyon is an incredible place to visit! Streams of sunlight pour through the narrow opening in the top, highlighting the layered red rock with pools of light. The canyon is considered a sacred place for the Native tribes in the region, so you must visit Antelope Canyon with a native guide.
