[Lens damage] Antelope Canyon / Arizona + Utah trip

Hey all,

So I'm heading mid-june to Grand Canyon. I'll be doing the South and North rim, Zion national park and Bryce Canyon.

I have 10 days so plenty of time to visit something else too. Antelope Canyon was on top of the list but the more I read and see the pictures I'm starting to reconsider this activity.

It seems like the perfect photography spot but the *heavy* presence of dust and sand makes me reconsider this option. I don't want to jam my pristine Loxia 21mm just to get a couple of "nice" picture already taken a million of time. Also this activity has a substantial cost - yet guaranteed impressive pictures...

Since I'm not willing to take the Loxia 21mm inside, my alternative is to find a viable cheap replacement. I was thinking about a cheap wide angle lens, maybe adapted?

What do you think of my fear of sand? Would I be exposed to sand as well during my other visit in Arizona / Utah anyway?
