It is hard to believe that this video is of a real place, isn’t it? But I can assure you that it is and located in northern Arizona near the Four Corners. We stayed in Page and drove around for many days to discover treasures on one of our Arizona trips.
It is located on the Navajo Nation where they provide jeep tours with guides at a reasonable price. In our group, there were several German men and being the nosy person I am, I had to know how they knew about this canyon. They had been in Las Vegas and decided to take a day tour. I was amazed as it is a well kept secret in the US! You will see from the video at the end of the post that this is a European tourist site.
Architect was frustrated that due to the narrow space it was impossible for him to get pictures without people! We found out that there are special times during the day where photographers can have individual sessions to film the canyon without other visitors. I have no idea about the price, which I am sure is more, but remember money has very little significance to the Navajos!
We were told about the flash floods which thunder through the canyon during the monsoon season. The guides stress that if they signal, people should immediately evacuate. We were there in the early summer and monsoon starts in August, but we were listening carefully nonetheless!
Here is the story of flash floods at the canyon as told on a local TV station. The precious water of the desert becomes the enemy. The canyon was created and changed by these flash floods in the past and continues even today, as the sand and stone is washed away.
