Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take an in-depth tour of Powell Museum, look for gifts at Big Lake Trading Post, then enjoy some diversion at Gunfighter Canyon, then take in the dramatic natural features at Horseshoe Bend, and finally take in breathtaking views at Antelope Canyon.
