I’ve been back in the states for just over month, after living abroad for three months in Europe! It feels so great to be back home. Initially, I was concerned I would miss Europe so much that I wouldn’t be happy back in the States, following my old routine. Luckily, it was the complete opposite! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED my time in Germany, but it feels so good to be back in my own home, with my own bed, and my clothes hanging in my closet.
Antelope Canyon is a popular slot canyon in northern Arizona – made up of two canyons, Upper and Lower. They’re made of sandstone and have earned their famous shape due to erosion from flood waters. While you are able to visit the canyons, you do have to be a part of a professional tour. The land is owned by the Navajo Tribe and they manage all tours. Antelope Canyon is less than 2-hours northeast of the Grand Canyon and approximately 30 miles from Utah border in the city of Page, Arizona.
Arizona and hiking going hand in hand. Metro Phoenix has a population over 4.5 million and more than 42 million tourists a year – and the city has over 200 miles of hiking trails! I have compiled a list of my favorite hiking trails. I’ve included everything from easy to difficult… now all you have to do is decide where to start!
