New Mexico and Arizona have some of the most beautiful slot canyons in the world. The above photo was taken on one of my more recent trips to the Southwest, to an area not far from Santa Fe.
These canyons are found in areas where there is low rainfall and are formed when water comes rushing through the sandstone or limestone rock. It’s extremely dangerous to get caught in one of these during a rainstorm as you can easily drown.
The above is in the Upper Antelope Canyon in Arizona.
