From Wiki: Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States. It is located 5 miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about 4 miles southwest of Page.
Off in the distance, about one mile, is the Bend. It was mid-day and about 95 degrees, with a very intense sun. And DRY!
It was downhill to the Bend, but, as you guessed, uphill on the return. UGH! We both drank a quart of water, each way.
It was a loooong way down there.
Watch the first step there Miss Nancy. It's a lu lu.
See those 8-person rafts waaaay down there? And I am zoomed out 300mm.
Takes my breath away just looking these, pics. You should have seen me there. I stayed way back from the edge, unlike some idiots who were sitting on the edge, feet dangling over 1000 feet straight down.
See what I mean?
This was an awesome site.
Miss Nancy didn't have a great time this day. She had a little dose of too much water and loss of salt in her system. She was better the next day.
Page, AZ, where we stayed for a couple of nights, about 10 blocks from the Glen Canyon Dam.
