While at the Grand Canyon area, a visit to the Antelope Canyon is a must.

The Antelope Canyon is the most-visited and the most-photographed slot canyon in the Southwest America. Located on Navajo land near Page, AZ, it offers two photogenic canyon sections, referred commonly to as Upper Canyon (The Crack) and Lower Canyon (The Corkscrew).

It was already 2PM when we got there, so we just took our time at the Upper Canyon. Lighting inside the canyon was tricky for cameras. Unfortunately I did not know about this: light beams peak through the canyon best between March and October. On winter, light is a little muted. Although I prefer the winter visit for there is less crowd, the next chance around again will be a visit during summer.

The following day we decided to shorten our stay for it snowed more overnight and extended further towards the Canyons. Instead, we headed back to Las Vegas and then to California.

This is definitely one of the most amazing place we've ever been to-- another one crossed out from our bucketlist!

Locations: Las Vegas, Lake Med (NV), Hoover Dam (NV), Flagstaff (AZ)

We thought of extending our Calgary summer one more week. A trip to warm Arizona and see the Grand Canyon would be a good idea, we thought.

We started our trip from Las Vegas and then a sidetrip to Lake Med and Hoover Dam. We've visited this area already in the past but thought of getting into the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge (O'Callaghan-Tillman Memorial Bridge) instead to get a different perspective. At 840 feet above the Colorado river, the bridge gives an astonishing view of the dam below.

As we were getting close to the Grand Canyon area, it started snowing and by the time we got to our hotel, the snow was as thick as a big dump in Canada! What a surprise!

The following day we drove towards the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and found out it has not snowed out yet. The first must-to-see we visited was the Antelope Canyon near Page, about 2 hours drive from Flagstaff.
