We had a fantastic day trip to Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. I would prefer a bit more time to spent in Horseshoe Bend and take my photos in more relaxed manner, but I also understood that we were fixed on time for Antelope Canyon. The Lower Antelope Canyon is the real masterpiece and must see once in a life!!!
