Today, I got to see the Upper Antelope Canyon, which is the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

It is most definitely worth a trip. I had seen the pictures before, but had never figured out where they'd been taken, until a friend of mine, along with his girlfriend, went last year.

When he showed me his pictures, well............I decided then and there that this was a place I had to get to. So here we go...

1. Your socks don't match!

Is there a story behind that?

Nice pictures though.

2. My dear TexasTowelie!

You're not supposed to be looking at my socks! Good grief.

It's not a sock, anyway...it's my brace to keep my arch from falling! It works.

Glad you liked the pictures!

10. You definitely don't want any of the archs around there to fall...

... we'd be digging you out for days.

20. I wish I could!

I have several health issues that prevent me from visiting the beautiful places in person. But I sure do appreciate you sharing it with us. I can walk okay, I just can't walk far.

14. So glad you visited there Peggy.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. I love the American southwest, and try and visit places like that whenever possible. It really gives you an appreciation for the awesomeness of nature and for life itself.

16. I thank you, my dear lovemydog!

It was pretty strenuous, but I really wanted to do this. SO GLAD I was able!

I so agree about the appreciation we get from viewing something so far removed from our ordinary lives.

22. My dear bluesbassman!

I'd heard that it would be thrilling, and wow, was it ever!

Everywhere you look, or almost, are incredible views. The guides tell stories about how to see, and how to photograph for the best results...

It was quite strenuous for me, but I doubt you'd have much difficulty walking in what is very much like soft beach sand.

27. Thanks so much, my dear orleans!

I've seen photos of the place several times, but never knew just where it is........until my friend and his gf went last year. That did it!

It was amazing, and I'm glad you enjoyed my pictures!
