Horseshoe Bend

Page, Arizona

Mother Nature was showing off when she made Horseshoe Bend, wrapping the deep green Colorado River around an orange conical outcrop in the Grand Canyon near Page, AZ. Take plenty of water and a wide-angle camera as you hike up a short, wide, sandy trail to the Horseshoe Bend Overlook, revealing otherworldly and photo-worthy views of cliffs dramatically dropping -- more than 1000 feet -- to the shimmering river below.
