Description

The horseshoe bend of the Colorado River near Page, AZ is a place that must be visited to believe. Photographs of this locale, while often impressive, simply can't capture the enormous scale of the scene. Nor can they capture the sense of vertigo one experiences when standing at the rim of the canyon and looking 1000 feet straight down to the river!
