Despite increasing crowds, until now Horseshoe Bend has had minimal development. 2018 is seeing the addition of a viewing platform with a guardrail, and an accessible trail. Local planners aim to limit the project’s effect on the land. But human impact on the region’s landmarks is a contentious subject. Nearby Glen Canyon Dam which created the vast reservoir of Lake Powell is still controversial decades after construction. A little southeast of the dam, Antelope Canyon’s two segments lie on Navajo land. They’re considered the most-photographed of the slot canyon landscapes in the Southwest. Colors in the sinuous channels change as light shifts. Generally dry, the riverbeds face the risk of flash floods when rains hit. But such forces also carved the sandstone’s flowing shapes.

    Since we stole everything else from the indigenous, we might as well preserve this shared beauty.

    The ancient Egyptians had made it to The Grand Canyon.
    The Arizona Gazette in April 5, 1909 had published an archeological find in the Marble Canyon cave openings wherein mainly Egyptian artifacts were uncovered by the Smithsonian Museum's archeologists (the first of whom was G.E. Kinkaid.)

    Horseshoe Bend, off-rez, $0. Antelope Canyon, on-rez, >$50 per person. Good luck taking your family to go see this. Stick to the National Park Service for much better bang for your buck.

    Sure. Antelope Canyon is beautiful. But it's very expensive. You have to pay like 70-80$ per person. For a family that's a lot of money.
