(Print with color photos)

Photograph America Newsletter on Hidden Desert Slot Canyons, Utah
 
Looking for something really different to photograph in the Southwest? Buckskin Gulch is the deepest and longest slot canyon in the world. Vertical walls reach up over a thousand feet and hikers must turn sideways to squeeze through the narrowest passages. The red stone walls twist and swirl in convoluted curves eroded by seasonal flash floods. The canyon's immense, overhanging walls sweep upward and then turn back on themselves to create a cathedral of overhead chambers that bounce, reflect, and diffuse the warm, desert colors of sunlight without ever revealing the sky.

Here are all the details you'll need for an exploration. Maps will guide you into Buckskin Gulch as well as Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons, some of the most beautiful slot canyons in northern Arizona located on the Navajo Reservation. Includes updated details on Lower Antelope Canyon since the permanent ladders have been installed. Details on the gear required and plenty of tech tips for shooting the slots.
Price $9.50
