Nature's Wonder- Horseshoe Bend



Arizona is a land of natural wonders. Here is one of them- Horseshoe Bend. The mighty Colorado River takes an unusual bend in the shape of horseshoe. I have visited this place a couple of times but, still it fascinates me. A 3/4 mile walk to the view point is something ... under the relentlessly punishing sun, hot red sand and the wind make the distance much more than just 3/4 mile :) Carefully looking down the steep cliff gives this awesome view and experience ...


Located on the way to Page (4 miles south-west) on Hwy-89. Carry enough water at any time of the year. The picture could be much better if you are okay to climb up a few rocks and if your body is ready to withstand the heat. I couldn't and hence headed back to the car asap.
