A vibrant shaft of light shines like a spotlight on the floor of Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon that was carved by violent flash floods. Beams of light form only when the sun is nearly overhead, lighting up the blowing sand that fills the canyon, which is dozens of feet deep. The Navajo people call the canyon Tsé bighánílíní dóó Hazdistazí, which means "the place where water runs through rocks."
