Site-Map What's New
Arizona scenery is some of the best in the American Southwest. My gallery includes Arizona scenics from Antelope Canyon - a slot canyon near Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon is considered one of the most beautiful slot canyons in the world. This site also has photos of Saguaro National Park, home to more of the giant Saguaro Cactus than anywhere else in the world. The Wave in Coyote Buttes, part of the Vermillion Cliffs Recreational Area, and the slot canyon of Buckskin Gulch are also here, although they are technically just inside the Utah border from Arizona. The slot canyon of Buckskin Gulch is also in Coyote Buttes, and is one of the longest slot canyons in the world. And then, of course, there's the great Grand Canyon. Larger versions of these photos of Arizona can be viewed by using a mouse rollover or using the Slideshow below.

Coyote Buttes South #3379
Throughout Coyote Buttes there aren't really specific hiking trails. And this is as it should be because the area is so beautiful, it's best to just wander and explore and discover all of the nooks and crannies of colorful, textured, and wonderfully shaped sandstone. See more photos at Coyote Buttes South.

Antelope Canyon #2
Antelope Canyon is a beautiful slot canyon located on Navajo land just outside of Page, Arizona. Flash floods have sculpted the canyon walls into smoothly curved undulating shapes that together with their color produce stunning scenes.

Antelope Canyon #9
The sunlight bounces back and forth off of the close-spaced red sandstone walls of Antelope Canyon to that by the time the light reaches the bottom, it has taken on a deep reddish-orange color. If you're a photographer, bring your tripod. Exposure times for these photographs are frequently 30 seconds and longer.
