Photographer's Note

Antelope Canyon is a popular location for photographers and sightseers, and a source of tourism business for the Navajo Nation. Photography within the canyons is difficult due to the wide luminosity range (often 10 EV or more) made by light reflecting off the canyon walls. This is a draw for photographers who want to hone their skills in a challenging environment, but a bane to casual snapshooters lacking the knowledge (and to a lesser extent, the equipment) necessary to obtain pleasing results.

Lower Antelope Canyon
Lower Antelope Canyon, called Hasdeztwazi, or "spiral rock arches" by the Navajo, is visited much less frequently. Prior to the installation of metal stairways, visiting the canyon required climbing with ropes and ladders in certain areas. Even following the installation of stairways, it is a more difficult hike than Upper Antelope -- it is longer, narrower in spots, and even footing is not available in all areas. At the end the climb out requires several long flights of stairs.
