1. Antelope Canyon:
The most photographed canyon in the southwest of the US is Antelope Canyon. It is found in Navajo land in the state of Arizona. The Navajo people call it Tsé bighánílíní meaning the place where water runs through rocks. The Antelope Canyon has two separate canyons, the Upper and Lower Antelope. Because rain water runs through this site, it smoothes out the rock and makes it curvy. The Antelope Canyon was formed during flashfloods which caused rock erosion, eroding and opening up passageways giving way to deep corridors with interesting rock shapes. For five months in 2006, the Tribal Park Authorities had to shut down the Antelope Canyon due to flooding.
