"Horseshoe Bend at Sunset" -- #wallpaper by "Owen W." from http://interfacelift.com -- When I arrived at Horseshoe Bend in Paige, Arizona in the mid-afternoon, I immediately knew that it would be worth the wait for sunset. I staked out a spot that I thought would be the most rewarding visually, and proceeded to wait. Two hours and one sunburn later, I had what I had envisioned; a golden canyon and clear sky.
Antelope Canyon is one of the most striking slot canyons known to man. A slot canyon is a narrow canyon sliced through a mesa by the forces of nature. Some canyons measure less than a yard across at the top, but drop a hundred feet or more from the rim to the bottom. Slots are cut and scoured by water and wind, with the striations of the sandstone becoming almost incandescent.
