Ive got an Arizona road trip planned in October and part of the trip includes going to Page.

I only have time to do one of the Slot Canyons while Im there and cant decide which of the ones I should pick.

Thought I would ask here if anyone has ever been or can recommend which one to try.

I forget if it is the lower or upper that is a more rigorous climb due to a lot of stairs.

You want to close as close to mid day as possible, and you want to book your tour in advance. If you wait to just before you want to go all the best times of day will be taken.

Yep going for a mid day one on a weekday part of a six day trip.

My choices are

Antelope Canyon, Canyon X, or Secret Canyon?

I want to do them all but can only do one. :cry:

Heck of a trip, 6 days on the Az road.

Sedona

Flag

Lake Powell

Rainbow Bridge

Horse Shoe Canyon (Simply amazed parents let toddlers run around inches from a 600ft cliff. Hell I was scared getting a great pic)

Antelope Canyon (Herded thru like cattle but such a special place)

Monument Valley (Best value National Park Ive ever been. Two things make sure you get the cheesy $5 pic on the horse like John Wayne in the John Ford movie. Also when done take the 13 mile drive into utah to get the Forrest Gump Bob Seger Album cover money shot along the highway!)

And finally after over 100 miles of dirt mountain roads, locked Indian reservation gates, getting lost several times, Hiking 1/2 mile downhill and 1/2 mile uphill, being afraid of death defying cliffs and on my 4th attempt I finally found it!
PACHETA FALLS!

Wish I knew how to post pics what a great state we live in!

Here are the pictures he took. I guess the site won't let me post more than 3 at a time, though. 8-)
