    Me and my friends went to Page, AZ last weekend. We started in the Four Corners Monument, then Horseshoe Bend late afternoon. I used E-M5Mii and 12-40mm Pro primarily, and used E-M10 and Pany 25mm as back up.

    Nice pics!

    I did that trip a few weeks ago. More crowded than I thought! Which Antelope Canyon tour did you take.

    Nice images. We did the Grand Circle last spring. Lake Powell looks a lot fuller this year. We took the lower canyon tour with Ken's tours as well. And did the upper canyon tour later the same day. The tours were a little faster moving than I expected though my wife was smart enough to get us into the first tour of the day for the lower canyon which really helped with the crowding issue. I posted some of my Antelope Canyon shots in Antelope Canyons, Arizona, Spring 2016.

    Lovely pictures!
    Was in that area on my vacation in May/June this year, Monument valley looks much better with clouds in the sky!
    Missed some of the other places, Antelope and Lake Powell. :(
    But that gives me a reason to go back there again! :dance3:

    We did lower too, but with the group next door (forget the name) so we did the same tour I think. We were the last ones in before they shut it down because of incoming rain

    We were told Powell is very high and that vegas was calling for more to refill mead. That's just what our guide told us. No idea if it's true
