Photo Set: Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend is located near Page, AZ about 5 miles from Grand Canyon National Park.  This awe inspiring view of the Colorado River is a must see! Go early because the parking lot fills up quickly during peak hours and so does the road leading to the lot. From the lot you need to walk a bit to get to the actual bend.  At peak times it can get very congested near the popular look out points. These points are close to the edge and the view is so breathtaking that it’s easy to get lost in it while being surrounded by people jostling for position to take a photo without really being conscious of others around them, so getting bumped and falling it a reality if you are not paying attention to your surroundings! If you are planning a visit check out these helpful tips for photographing Horseshoe Bend during different times of day and look over this canyon hiking guide before you go.
