Light Beams

While the canyon walls of Canyon X are taller than those of Upper Antelope, which famously boasts mesmerizing light beams, we discovered that Canyon X also possesses its own enchanting beams. These materialize for a limited period during the summer when the sun’s position is just right. We planned this trip to be there at the right time. We were there on June 15th and the light beams were amazing. Lasting for approximately an hour and a half, the light beams provided a spectacle that we couldn’t resist capturing.
