After shooting the upper canyon, I drove over the lower canyon and had about an hour and a half before they closed to go in and do my thing. The lower canyon is less dramatic than the upper, but I really like it as well. It's much tighter and intimate. Instead of walking in the slot, you literally have to slide down a smooth crack in the ground. There were fewer tourists here (nice for photos) since they don't have the same light beams as upper. At times it got so tight that you couldn't put your foot on the ground and had to walk along the walls. This image is an example of when things get really tight. You can still squeeze through though.
After shooting the lower canyon, I headed out to Havasu, but right before I got to the turn to start heading along the south rim of the Grand Canyon, I got stuck in traffic. Fortunately it happened right next to another highway so I went off to another town to grab some dinner and came back, only to find the accident still there. It turns out that traffic came to a standstill for several hours and 5 ppl died when one car hit a truck head-on. Looks like it was their time to go.
Nevertheless, I went with it and stopped by a hotel to recharge my camera and laptop batteries, look at photos, and post these images up to the blog. Traffic has cleared up since I've been here so once this image has been posted, I'm gonna hit the road and head down to Havasu Canyon tonight.
Time to rock and roll!
