Thursday 17th August 2017 – Page Slot Canyons

We left Flagstaff early for our 2 hour trip North to Page making sure we got to our organised trip to the Secret Canyon by 9am, this would have been impossible from Phoenix and was why we stayed North last night. The tour was of the many Slot Canyons they have in this part of Arizona, carved by wind and rain over centuries and you are left with amazing sandstone canyons. The 30 minute Sand Dune buggy ride with our guide Nick was also worth the money alone cutting through dry riverbeds on the way. The Slot Canyons were stunning, will only put 1 picture up here but if you are ever in Arizona these are a must see!

After lunch we headed about a mile down the road to visit the famous Horseshoe Bend part of the Grand Canyon on its Eastern Rim. And again this viewpoint was breath taking looking into the canyon from 1000 feet above. This attraction is free of charge but is quite a hike in temperatures of 95f!

Storms are forecast for Saturday (Last Day of the Monsoon part of the trip) so it will be a welcome sight to get back into storm chasing again, the one down side is the area most affected is where we have been for the last 10 days and SE Arizona once again!
