The Subway is a slot canyon at Zion National Park in Utah. It’s the kind of natural phenomena that looks so beautiful it’s almost otherworldly. You can imagine catching a supernatural train to the underworld here.

The Subway was formed by water rushing through the rock, creating not just the the tunnel-shaped but the shallow pools in the floor. Light, leaves, water, and stone all mean that the tunnel never photographs the same way twice.
