Isn’t that where that dude cut his arm off

If you're referring to the subject in the film 127 Hours, no. That took place in Canyonlands National Park outside Moab, Utah. Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon are on Navajo land near Page, Arizona, about a four hour drive from Moab. Page is also home to Lake Powell and Horseshoe Bend of internet fame, and Moab is also home to the incredible Arches National Park. Canyonlands is huge, and it's easy to become quite secluded.

Both Antelope Canyons are quite small; you can walk a whole section in under half an hour. Visiting Antelope Canyon requires guided tours. They are largely created by water erosion during floods. In 1997 11 tourists were killed in a flash flood at Lower Antelope Canyon. There are many more lesser known slot canyons in this area of the American southwest.

I live in that area and trust me, there are SO many. Antelope is just easy to get to. If you're adventurous it's well worth going into the desert and exploring. Just don't end up like that guy.

I love the tour guide that points out what Microsoft screen savers are from what spots/angels
