Do you speak Navajo? If not, then you are like me and probably didn’t know that “Tse’ bighanilini” means “the place where the water runs through the rock” and is a name of one of the most amazing places in the world. Unlike many others, it is a simple and meaningful name, however, it doesn’t explain why this canyon is so popular and attracts hundreds of tourists each day.
I always marvel at how creative and arty nature can be while creating tourist attractions for us. Isn’t it amazing how a relatively small amount of rock, placed in the right place, can force a river to make a twist like this?
I must confess that for some unknown to me reason I really like canyons, especially narrow ones – so you can only imagine how fascinated I felt being in a such remarkable and famous place like Antelope Canyon.
Antelope Canyon has two narrow sections, which attract enormous interests among tourists and photographers – Lower and Upper Antelope Canyons.
Up until June 2009, every time when I saw an image of the Monument Valley, saw it in the movie or read an article about this great place, I was telling to myself that one day I’d definitely visit this great area. Fortunately it is not the case anymore – another great location pinned and marked on the world map.
