Colorado Plateau Photo 3

3 of 5
Under Nature's Knife
Photograph by Adriel Heisey

Sharper than a scalpel, the lazy, patient press of water cuts deep in Upper Antelope Canyon, gouging subterranean channels from layers of ancient rock. The canyon lies south of Lake Powell in the Navajo Nation, and, seen from above, appears impenetrable. But its cathedral-like interior draws streams of tourists and photographers, who enter at a point farther south under the supervision of Navajo guides.
