In The Slot

In order to prepare for the swarming mass of humanity that is Vegas during CES, we first spent a few days in the still and the silence of the Arizona desert, exploring landscapes that had echoed through our reading.

One place we visited was Antelope Slot Canyon, on Navajo tribal land near Page. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, a narrow ribbon carved through twisted layers of sandstone, worn away by the wind and the dust. This is what nature's sandblaster can do, given a few million years.

We will be back, some spring day when the light is at its best.
