Horseshoe bend is a meander in the Colorado River, located in Arizona, USA. Horseshoe Bend is a popular tourist spot. I visited Horseshoe bend in August 2014, before my visit to Lake Powell, AZ. Once you’ve parked up, its a round a 1 mile hike to get to it. It’s an easy hike and is mostly sand.

So, whats so great about it? Well, the sheer drop of course! The river is about 1,000 ft below, so if you’re afraid of heights, this one’s not for you! In the image below, you can see a white spec on the river below…That’s a boat!

The colours are amazing! The blues and greens of the river contrast beautifully with reds, pinks and oranges of the rock.
