Sunset over Horseshoe Bend
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Arizona, USA
Horseshoe Bend is a popular location to witness the complete U shape meander of the mesmerizing Colorado River below. It’s situated almost at the place where the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Wonders of the World begins, just 4 miles from the town of Page. While 5 miles downstream is the impressive Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell, the second largest man-made reservoir in the United States.
The overlook is 1,000-feet (300 m) above the river itself and can be accessed via a 1.5-mile round-trip hike.
