Kanab is the place for Wire Pass Trail (Buckskin Gulch) as well! If you

want to explore a slot canyon without hitting Antelope Canyon and paying for access/guide on Indian land, you can hit Buckskin Gulch in Kanab for a nice little slot canyon. It's on BLM property.

Access via Wire Pass Trailhead. Buckskin Gulch is one of America's longest slot canyons, but you can see much of it in the first miles, in and back. From the trailhead it's 1.7 to the slot canyon and you get into some Indiana Jones stuff right away. And right away when Wire Pass hits Buckskin Gulch are some of the more impressive Indian rock art and petroglyphs I've ever seen. And shifting sands make more or less visible at all times.

Here's a rudimentary map, Wire Pass at bottom right area:

Regardless, the Vermilion Cliffs around Kanab make waking up and driving to the day's activities impressive every morning and evening.
