Antelope Canyon

Arizona, U.S.

Often named on lists of geographical wonders, this stunning slot canyon is a popular destination for hikers. Its Navajo name, “the place where water runs through rocks,” is an allusion to the canyon’s creation by flood erosion. The narrow, undulating spaces between rock formations allow for stunning patterns when sunlight filters through the striated stone.
