Horseshoe Bend & Antelope Canyon

Camping at the Grand Canyon was unbelievably cold (about 4C at night) after the warm temperatures in California a few days earlier. This is because of the very high altitude at the Grand Canyon. It was also very windy while I was there which meant that unfortunately all the helicopter flights were cancelled. However, while camping at the Grand Canyon we met up with several other Suntrek groups including Anke's and Thomas's from my first group.

We left the Grand Canyon and after a short drive we stopped at a viewpoint overlooking Horseshoe Bend. This was an amazing deep canyon that is virtually unseen on the approach because it is carved out of the otherwise flat desert.

Next I went on a 4x4 trip to Antelope Canyon, which is one of the many spots owned and run by Native Americans. A really inspiring place that floods regularly, sometimes right to the top of the Canyon when there has been heavy rain.
