Description: Photograph of the Colorado River at Horseshoe Bend, Arizona. The trailhead for this view is located about 3 miles south of Page, Arizona, USA. You climb up an incline in very loose sand and then continue on for about 3/4 of a mile. Once there the view is worth it. It is not for the faint of heart as there are no guard rails to view the great bend in the canyon. Best time of day to view is actually when one would not normally think of taking a photo - 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM. The sun directly overhead allows both sides of the canyon walls to be seen without shadows.
