  1. Loved your video! Quick question; were you able to do Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and the Grand Canyon in one day? Planning on visiting in Jan 2020.

  2. Great video! Beautiful footage and family! We recently took the same trip you guys did – to Lower Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. Would love it if you checked out our video if you have a chance – https://youtu.be/VjaEz8kDLmQ

  3. I just discovered your videos and love all the traveling you guys get to do! What an incredible experience for your children. When I visited lower antelope canyon it was full of people. We were packed in there like sardines. How did you guys get the canyon to yourselves? I'd love to see it again with less people on the tour.

  4. The power that water has is amazing. Then you combine it with time and it creates such beautiful things. Another awesome video.

  5. Love what y’all are doing as a family creating memories! Can’t wait till I can do the same with my family… Safe travels and God Bless!! 🙏🏻

  6. Wow the Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend look so amazing, I can't wait for The Grand Canyon Hike. As always amazing content from The Epic Family Road Trip channel. Btw I was wondering what camera are you using to vlog? and have a nice day cheers !!!
