Spiral Rock Arches

The place where water runs through rocks, "spiral rock arches” by the Navajo nation. Lower antelope, whenever it rains, the tour would be cancelled due to lower underground level. Luckily booked two tours, one tour canceled due to rain. In 1997, 12 Hikers Are Swept Away By Flash Flood here. The Canyon renown for its narrow, twisting limestone walls became a trap for 12 hikers in 1997 when a flash flood filled it with a wall of water 11 feet high. The guide survived, battered and his clothes ripped off by the force of the water… All the rest missed or died…
