Upper Antelope Canyon
Editorial: I have mixed feelings about photographing Upper Antelope Canyon. I chose a photo-specific tour, with a Max 12 of photographers. What really happened, there are about six other Navajo tour companies offering tours of Antelope Canyon, some with photo tours, and others, with regular tourists. When I signed up I thought, great, only 12 max togs, yet, that was so far from the truth it makes politicians look like they are telling the truth. There was over 75 tourists streaming through the canyon. I felt I spent most of my time up against a canyon wall waiting for the masses to get by. When you get to the end of the canyon, you are required to double back, so, while one horde is coming in, another horde is leaving.
I went off-season during a mid-week day.
I don't think I would ever go back during the in-season when the beams of light make there appearance because the in-season visitors increase...think of Disneyland in July.
