Correct option is
C

under the canyon floor

Prepositional phrases are a group of words containing preposition which lacks either a verb or a subject. Such phrases always have two basic parts: object and preposition. Prepositions are mostly followed by objects. 
Using option C will justify all the above rules. 'Under the canyon floor is a prepositional phrase as 'under' is the preposition and 'canyon floor' is the object. 
Options A, B and D are not prepositional phrases. 
Thus, option C is the correct answers.
