As promised, here’s a mini-travel guide of Arizona must-sees from our recent trip for any of you who might be planning a trip sometime soon!
1. Antelope Canyon – Upper: 8am Known as the place “where water runs through the rocks,” the Upper Canyon is best seen while the sunlight is gentle enough to reflect its smooth orange and yellow undertones.
Antelope Canyon – Lower: 12–1pm Visit these “spiral rock arches” when the sun is directly above them, allowing light to pierce through and reflect a variety of beautiful colors.
2. Horseshoe Bend: Stop by this iconic location just north of Grand Canyon to see why it’s one of the most photographed areas along the Colorado River.
3. Rainbow Bridge: This national monument is one of the world’s largest known natural bridges, can only be reached by hiking or boating, and is so worth the trip.
4. Lake Powell: Rent a boat or kayak to enjoy a small adventure and some lovely sights along Lake Powell’s almost 2,000 miles of shoreline.
5. Glen Canyon Dam: Find incredible views any time of the day atop the dam’s 710’ bridge over the powerful Colorado River.
I’ve said before how much I love going places where I can take a break from the Internet. But being disconnected isn’t the only reason I spend time in locations like national parks. I go because when I’m surrounded by nature’s art, I feel inspired. Being someplace new and natural motivates me to try and create something new and beautiful myself. So let’s keep wandering where the wifi is weak! We never know what we’ll find…
