We drove out to Page Arizona to photograph Antelope Canyon and then afterwards we headed over to Horseshoe Bend. Unfortunately that meant we got to Horseshoe Bend during midday, not the best time to photograph it but atleast we did not get that deep dark shadow looking over the canyon that you get when the sun is rising / falling behind. So all in all was quite pleased with the lighting for the time we reached the top.. although it was tough work getting to the top with that burning midday sun.
Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States.
Horseshoe Bend is located 5 miles (8.0 km) downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of Page.
It is accessible via hiking a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) round trip from U.S. Route 89, but an access road also reaches the geological structure, as it is part of a state park. Horseshoe Bend can be viewed from the steep cliff above.
The overlook is 4,200 feet (1,300 m) above sea level, and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet (980 m) above sea level, making it a 1,000-foot (300 m) drop.
