Situated about 180 kilometers northeast of the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona, it is made up of two slot canyons — upper and lower — each formed by the rushing waters of the late-summer monsoons. Its wave-like structure creates a supernatural appearance when the light beams shine directly down into the openings of the canyon.
