Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend in winter, Page, Arizona

Taken at Horseshoe Bend, near Page, Arizona on January 28th, 2010

Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River is one of THE classic southwest photo locations. And in my ignorance, I didn’t even know I was there until I practically fell into it. It wasn’t until I hit the outskirts of Page and saw the turnoff for the Horseshoe Bend trail that I realized what an opportunity I had on my hands. Due to snow storms, it took me two visits to the bend before I could even see into the canyon. When the vista finally did present itself, it was under a clearing winter storm which had left just a dusting of snow on the distant peaks – a perfect backdrop to this awe-inspiring natural feature.
