Places: Return to Horseshoe Bend

Darn you Arizona!  There is so much to see, but you leave us little options but to visit all of your fantastic landmarks multiple times to get a more complete experience.  And what a wonderful problem to have.

A recent trip through Page, Arizona was carefully planned to take in a couple of places at a different time of day (and season) then the last time I was there.  Along with Lower Antelope Canyon, one I had to see again was Horseshoe Bend.  This time at Sunset.

Sunset provided a much different experience than the early morning of last summer.

But do not forget that the “wall” that provides the viewing plateau is very underrated and quite impressive on its own.

You’ll notice that the 1000 ft. drop to the bottom offers “no guardrails” and many folks often put them themselves precariously close to the edge.

Horseshoe Bend is not the only view of the Colorado River.  Take a quick stop just outside of town for a scenic view of Glen Canyon Dam and the Colorado River.

Other Places to consider:

Monument Valley

Lower Antelope Canyon
