A lot of us have heard of Antelope Canyon, well there are others, maybe not as beautiful, but they don't have hundreds of photographers jockeying for position and guides asking you to move on so some one else can have their turn.

Wire Pass, Buckskin Gulch and Paria Canyon in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is a series of slot canyons that allow for a peaceful hike that can last up to 6 days if you want with nary a photographer in sight if you get in far enough, spend some time in there and you'll come away with some beautiful images and you wont have to pay for the privilege, unless you decide to get a permit for an overnight trip.

Its located in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona and there are a great many other locations nearby like: The North Rim, South Coyote Buttes, The Wave, etc, etc...
