A trip in west America of my German long friend Mr. Chilian
Antelope Canyon / Arizona

The editor's word: Mr. Chilian is my German long friend for philately. I have introduced his brief features here, and his story have been published in our philatelic web site . This year, Mr.Chilian and his wife Maria revisit the old haunt--America. But there are two point in this trip: one is driving a car as himself; Other one is in western America, especially Arizona and Grand Canyon. He sent many rare photos for us, It is very valuable for Morricone's Fans who are interested in the Spaghetti Westerns very much. So we publish these photos below for share (Mr.Chilian's more pages : 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13 ...)

Mr. Chilian sent total 102 photos, every file's size is about 5M and 8 million PX. The size is too much for web page, so we have to select 65 photos and properly compress them, but still more than 2 million PX. You can click every photo for see bigger photo. Mr. Chilian also wrote explanation for every photo. We added some note in some photos so that you could understand more

Antelope Canyon, Arizona. A small and deep canyon formed by water of the Antilope Creek. On every bend of the canyon you see different shapes, forms and colors. This was our most exciting experience !!!!! (pls. Turn 007 up - the foto is horizontal it must be vertical)

Antelope Canyon

Note: The mysterious and haunting beauty of Antelope Canyon (also known as "Corkscrew Canyon") awaits the adventurous traveler who seeks to discover one of the most spectacular -- yet little known attractions of the Lake Powell area. A tour to this awe-inspiring sculpture set in stone is a must for amateur and professional photographers alike. Come see nature's surprising masterpiece of color.

Travel in a 4-wheel drive vehicle that is both rugged and safe yet comfortable. Antelope Canyon Tours begin at #22 South Lake Powell Boulevard, near the intersection of Lake Powell Boulevard and North Navajo Drive in the heart of Page. Look for the monster trucks! Call or email for directions.

You enjoy a scenic ride to the canyon where the guide explains geology, cultural history and modern issues. Upon arrival at the site you will step into the desert and enter an amazing fantasy world in stone. For photographers, with proper exposures, you can bring out the best in your own creativity. For non-photographers there is a magical new world to explore and immerse yourself in. The colors are rich and deep in the morning and afternoon, and the famous light beams occur mid-day during the April to September.(See here)

Antelope Canyon is the most-visited and most-photographed slot canyon in the American Southwest.[1] It is located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon includes two separate, photogenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as Upper Antelope Canyon or The Crack; and Lower Antelope Canyon or The Corkscrew.

The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tse' bighanilini, which means "the place where water runs through rocks." Lower Antelope Canyon is Hasdestwazi, or "spiral rock arches." Both are located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.[3]
Antelope Canyon was formed by erosion of Navajo Sandstone,[4] primarily due to flash flooding and secondarily due to other sub-aerial processes. Rainwater, especially during monsoon season, runs into the extensive basin above the slot canyon sections, picking up speed and sand as it rushes into the narrow passageways. Over time the passageways are eroded away, making the corridors deeper and smoothing hard edges in such a way as to form characteristic 'flowing' shapes in the rock.

Flooding in the canyon still occurs. A flood occurred on October 30, 2006 that lasted 36 hours, and caused the Tribal Park Authorities to close Lower Antelope Canyon for five months.(See here)
