While we were resting in Page, we caught up some shopping and did some local sightseeing. One of the goals of our trip was to see the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. But, we didn't realize that we were near the Big Bend of the Colorado. To get to the viewpoint was a .75 mile hike in 103 degree heat with a blustery wind from the South. Loaded up with my full water bottle, I hiked to the overlook and was amazed by the beauty of the natural wonder. How a river that otherwise was following a basic flow path ended up taking a horseshoe bend in the middle of a sandstone canyon, was pretty astonishing to me. After getting my photo shots in, I slowly hiked back resting frequently and drinking much from my water bottle. You all can tell me if the photo was worth the effort. ;)
Very beautiful! I love horseshoe bend
Yes, it was worth the hike! Beautiful.
