The territory of the Navajo. Antelope Canyon
In the south-western United States is a beautiful and amazing Antelope Canyon. It is so beautiful and unusual that, looking at it, you realize that nature is able to perform miracles. This canyon is called a slot canyon since it was formed because of the erosion of the sandstone.
The cause of the erosion may be water, which suddenly collapses Canyon. Not that there is no rain. But they are so suddenly collapses, the enormous flow of water, sandstone just could not stand it. After the water penetrates into the ground, already mixed with sand while punching small channels in the canyon. For a long time, passages and caves that are formed, breaks down and becomes deeper. This canyon gradually acquired many centuries in the form of a wave. Floods occur frequently here, so it is not surprising that the canyon is gradually destroyed.
Canyon, by the way is located within the Navajo Indian tribe. Local residents gave the canyon its own name, that is, they call it a place where the water is constantly flowing. If you want to visit the canyon, you will need to agree in advance, because here is not always allowed. And the reason for this is quite simple, because of the frequent flooding in the area, tourists, and local residents will be downright dangerous, there is.
Of course, visiting the canyon, do not forget to bring your camera, because you will not have all the emotions that you can see here. While some do not like such places, and simply refuse, saying that that there is nothing to do. But this means that they simply do not appreciate the culture or just do not like to be in such places.
When I go there, be sure to share, it is always interesting to learn something new about the places where nature creates a fairy tale, not so much for himself as for locals and tourists.
