Horseshoe Bend

One last photo for now from my trip to Arizona. Near Page, Arizona there’s an interesting meander in the Colorado river name Horseshoe Bed. It’s about five miles downstream of Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell and a probably just over a mile round trip hike off US Route 89. Like the slot canyons in the area, this is best photographed when the sun is high in the sky. I was limited on time as I had spend much of the morning and midday in slot canyons around Page and had to be in Phoenix early in the evening.

This worked nicely as while this is a lovely spot, it doesn’t require a lot of time to view. It’s a stunning view and the photos don’t really show how wide of a scene it is. Here’s my photo showing the bend assembled from several smaller images.
