though a winter day in antelope canyon, the walls produced just as breathtaking sites as it would in a summer noon. due to the earth's tilt in the winter the sun is not directly above the slot canyon, therefore we do not get to experience the effects of light beams in certain areas of the canyon. however, the walls still were as breathtaking with dynamic colors and shapes that challenge the mind and inspire many navajo images in the angles of the canyon walls. as the canyon is on navajo land, one can only access them by guided navajo tour guide. though winter, we still experienced a bit of traffic. it did not take away from the experience of the canyon, as we moved swiftly through (perhaps due to cold and the wind). i couldn't imagine squeezing through bodies of people while trying to experience the canyon during the summer, so i'm happy my first time here was with a much smaller crowd.
