Antelope Canyon, Arizona- After you squeeze into the canyon you're met with a metal ladder to help you get to the bottom. Before the ladder was installed travelers had to rappel to the bottom, and there wouldn't be any way to get out of the canyon at the opposite end without a ladder. Photo by Travis Burke.

The Paria Mountains' 18 miles from Kanab, Utah in Hwy 89. Paria Wilderness, Utah, USA. These mountains are found beside a dirt road that connects to Highway 89 just before the Paria River. Hwy 89 takes you from Kanab Utah to Page Arizona. The side of the mountains have spectacular colors (better that the Grand Canyon, Bryce, the Painted Dessert, the slot canyons and even White Pocket) due to their encrusted minerals like iron oxides, manganese, cobalt and others that geologists describe.
One of the most beautiful slot canyon hikes out in Utah is the Kanarra Creek trail. A must-visit when you're in the area! Here's a guide to the 4 mile out-and-back trail, which takes you through narrow canyons, and 2 beautiful waterfalls.
