Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona

HDRRR! Must View On Black

 

I was almost approaching near to end of my trip. This was a pit stop after Antelope Canyon on the way to my final destination Grand Canyon.

 

Horseshoe Bend is the name for a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States. It is located slightly downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about four miles or 6 km south of Page. Accessible via a 3⁄4-mile (1.2 km) hike from U.S. Route 89, it can be viewed from the steep cliff above. According to Google terrain maps, the overlook is 4200 feet above sea level and the Colorado River is at 3200 feet above sea level making it a breath taking 1000 foot drop.

 

There is absolutely no protection or railing, you have be very very careful in approaching the edge. I was almost crawling by holding one tripod leg and moving camera carefully. I could hear my wife cautioning from back. I took quite a number of shots before getting this, it was very adventures and scary!

 

In fact I tore brand new Levis for this photograph! LOL!
