Antelope Canyon

I think everybody on that tour bus got the super flu.

Antelope Canyon is one of the natural wonders on everybody's bucket list and so you know it's going to be an expensive ordeal. You get to the bus at 5am and drive four hours, switch to off-road trucks, and get packed like cattle into a surprisingly narrow canyon.

They watch the weather super close, because it flash-floods - the whole beautiful thing is being carved by water. And our guides assured us there's just enough time to escape with our lives if you stay with the group.

Certainly there are places destroyed or disappeared that only exist now in photographs. But popular spots have already been documented by ten-thousand talented people with better equipment. And commercial tourism leaves fingerprints on the experience that's not in the pictures. For example, to me these photos represent the super-flu.
