For our trip to South East Asia in March 2015 we tried to make the most out of the region. On the way to Vietnam we had a stopover in Hongkong, on the way back in Beijing.
Antelope Canyon in Arizona was a must see for our trip through south west USA as it is especially interesting for taking pictures. The difficult question was to choose between upper and lower antelope Canyon. Due to the accessibility, the availability of tours (the canyon can only be accessed by a Navajo organized tour as it is on a Indian reservation) we chose the lower part of the canyon.
Another importand point to consider was the time of day of the tour. If taking pictures is important this is the most important fact to consider. After massive online research to find out about different experiences we chose a tour at 10:30 with Lower Antelope Canyon Tours.
The opinions differ on whether the sun is better in the morning or in the afternoon. If you just want to visit the canyon and enjoy its beauty it simply doesnt matter. If you would like to take good pictures try to catch a sunny day and do not go when the sun is highest as you might miss the cool shadows and the spectacular light inside of the Slot canyon.
This year on July 08/09 the German track and field championships take place in my beautiful home town in Erfurt. We managed to get tickets for yesterdays competitions and it was so much fun. The weather was great, we had good seats and we were able to watch some good and fair fights for the medals.
Below you can find some impressions.
Arches National Park is only a few miles outside of Moab. It is the national park with the highest concentration of arches. They come in all kinds and forms and a visit is pretty spectacular!
