The Wanderlust landscapes of the Antelope & Horse Shoe Bend
July 24, 2019
Welcome back! Today I wanted to quickly jump into 2 of my favorite wanderlust locations which I am pretty sure you’ve heard of plenty of times. I am really excited because these places are a natural beauty on their own. Plus, the tranquility you feel once you spend some time in these locations, immerses you with new energy to conquer whatever is at your forth. (Okay, so maybe I am exaggerating but, that’s just me!) 🙂
To find the canyon antelopes you must first book a tour with a native Navajo guide. It is also very important to decide if you want to do the lower or upper antelopes. The reason why we decided on the lower antelopes was that Jay has back problems and it was only fair to go with the lower antelopes.
The picture below was taken by a Native Navajo women guide. She was very sweet and happy to take (what I consider a great memory picture). It’s not all the time that someone takes great pictures on our mini-explorations. So for that, I am very thankful! Maybe our kids will one day see this as an album of our young old days.
Next, be prepared to pay a decent amount you’re looking at $55 per person. Not bad at all. And once you are on the tour you’ll wait for about 10-15 minutes until your guide gets there with a pick-up safari look alike truck. You’ll sit on the back and finally drive off with lots of sand dusting your way so make sure to bring a scarf and glasses to take care of your skin and eyes. Yeah, I know it doesn’t sound glamorous but I promise you’ll enjoy the views and the insta worthy pic.
As for the famous horseshoe bend, you won’t need a guide for this one. Just make sure you GPS the location. Once you do this you’ll arrive at a big parking lot and then you’ll walk a certain distance until you see the marvelous horseshoe bend. This is all eye candy just make sure to be careful. Plenty of individuals have done unfortunately wrong moves and sadly have passed to the other world. I usually don’t like to bring up sad emotions to my blog but its best to warn than be sorry later. I personally was scared to try to take a very up-close picture and I am not the type to be afraid easily but this was definitely an exception. Nature is powerful. I say just enjoy the view and take a safe picture/vid.
This was as close as we got!
Here goes my Instagram picture. Taken by my personal photographer a.k.a (Boyfriend- Jay).
Last but not least, if you have more time to spare don’t forget to take a look at Lake Powell. I wanted to kayak but because of a big storm our plans got canceled last minute so this picture will justify. Until next time, thanks for reading. Love Melo!♡
