Several trucks were promptly loaded...14/vehicle...and we were soon on our way. Our truck driver/guide's name was Rick...he was excellent!
Tours to the Upper Antelope Canyon last 90-100 minutes from start to finish. the drive to the canyon takes 20 minutes; 40 mins drive time - 50/60 mins spent at the canyon. After we depart from our office to the Canyon in our 4-wheel drive Tour Truck you will come off the truck and walk inside the canyon with your tour guide(driver). Whilst on tour you can take pictures, hear some local history and time for you to enjoy the beauty. To enter the canyon is Very easy - we just simply walk right in (ground level). There are no heights involved, we will be looking upwards - the canyon walls are up to 100 ft.
Steve snapped a couple of pictures along the way...
The tour was absolutely fascinating...and the colours incredible! Inside the canyon was a little crowded at times with so many tour groups...especially when you had folks coming from the opposite direction. Poor Rick had a heck of a time trying to keep our group together...and back out of the canyon to the truck...he had time constraints, after all.
As we were waiting for the rest of the group to come out of the canyon, Rick showed us how the canyon was formed. He made a mound out of the sand, made a small indent in the top and poured just a little water from my water bottle into it.
Big John's Texas BBQ. Note the semi truck exhaust stacks for chimneys...
Dam Bar and Grille for a cold beer...which happened to be in the same plaza where the tour company was located. A nice little spot...and the beer sure tasted good!
