    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. The bend is locally known as "King Bend." It is located five miles (8.7 km) downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about four miles or 6 km southwest of Page. Accessible via a 0.5 mile (0.8 km) hike from U.S. Route 89, it can be viewed from the steep cliff above. According to Google terrain maps, the overlook is 4,200 feet above sea level and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet above sea level making it a breathtaking 1,000 foot drop.

  2. Horseshoe Bend – Page Arizona

    This is my obligatory photo of the iconic Horseshoe Bend. This is west of Page Arizona, downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and upstream from Lees Ferry. Many tourists take a one day raft trip from the dam to Lees Ferry and return by bus. This overlook is about 1/2 mile hike from the parking lot so lots of tourists see this. It is a long way down so folks with a fear of heights probably dont work out this far. I wish the clouds and light had been better. Oh well – play the hand that you are dealt. There are many exquisite photos of this iconic view so I have hesitated to post my offering. And I wanted to have it online in case my harddrive crashes again and I lose this shot. I had to prove that I can see as well as the others. A better wide angle lens is helpful. In my opinion too many people get too hung up on big panoramas and dont capture the essence.
