Antelope Canyon

Arizona, the third state we visited during our roadtrip after Colorado and UtahEven after already having seen quite a few things in the US, Arizona didn’t fail to amaze me. I love how every state in the US has something unique. Every landscape has its own story.

After our arrival in Page we were glued to the pool for the first few hours. It’s so HOT in Arizona! After dinner, our plan was to enjoy the sunset at Horseshoe Bend. Even though it was still incredibly hot, we walked the little track for a breathtaking view.

Of course, sunset times are busy because it’s a beautiful time to see these places. Nonetheless, the crowd didn’t make it any less amazing. Maybe the sunrise would be a better time to take photos because of the backlights, but luckily we were still able to take some photos and enjoy the beautiful sight.

Antelope Canyon is by far the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my entire life. Photos don’t do its beauty justice. It felt surreal walking through this beautiful canyon while the sunlight started dripping in. You have to book a tour to see the Antelope Canyon because of an accident that happened a few years back. These tours are great, though. Not only do they give you a lot of information about the history of these canyons, they also give great photography tips to take the best photos possible.

When in Arizona, you kinda have to visit the Grand Canyon. We decided to visit the North Rim instead of the South Rim because my parents had already seen the South Rim when they were in the states 25 years ago. After a little hike, we reached the viewing point.

Once again, the immense view made a great impact on me. It was a beautiful view, but somehow I had imagined the Grand Canyon very differently. I really wouldn’t say that Dead Horse Point Start Park was a less beautiful or impressive canyon. By all means, I slightly preferred Dead Horse Point! That doesn’t mean that I’m not incredibly happy I got to see the Grand Canyon, but I would love to see the South Rim next time to see if that lines up with my expectations a bit more.
