Colors of the Desert Canyons

Colors of the Desert Canyons - This is the entrance of upper Antelope canyons in Arizona with the soft light from the openings above which give these unique and wonderful colors on the natural canyon walls. The light from above get filters down into the slot canyon and depending on the time of year and day it can change the colors on the sandstone walls. The desert southwest can be an amazing place to visit if you know what is there to see. This was the big room that we first came into it was simple amazing with these wonderful twist and turns of the sandstone walls, which have been etched out by years of floods, wind and rain that flow through the canyons. Years of wind, rains, and floods have formed these canyons as it erodes the differ layers of sandstone giving twist and turns through out exposing the many different levels of sediment in the rocks with change colors and texture. I have been told that iron oxides have been deposited on some of the sand grains in varying amounts giving the slot canyon layer after layer of every shade of red. Just a note of caution there was an event here I believe in the 1997's where a rainstorm 15 miles upstream occurred and cause flooding in the canyon killing 11 people in Antelope canyon so I would make sure that there is no rain around if you go.
