Page AZ Part 3 - Horseshoe Bend

One of the coolest parts of our trip was Horseshoe Bend. It is an overlook of the Colorado River at the start of the Grand Canyon. It is amazing what the power of water can do over time. In this case it has created one of the most beautiful scenes that I have ever seen.

 People come from all around the world to see this site, even guys in skirts from Scotland.

 I did not feel as confident with Nolan on my back so I kept my distance from the edge. 

 It is hard to capture the magnitude of this scene in a photo. Look at the white spot on the bottom of the photo in the river. Realizing that is a boat helps give it perspective.
You can see the same boat in this photo as well further down the river to the left.
