Description

Arriving at Horseshoe Bend before sunset puts the sun directly behind the view, so bright you’re compelled to look away. But you probably don’t want to look down for too long. Crawling to the edge of the cliff gets you a breathtaking view of the 1,000 foot drop to the Colorado River. It makes your heart pound, your knees go weak and you don’t want to move. But that’s a good thing. For just as the sun starts to hit the horizon, its glare turns everything to gold and your heart then pounds with exhilaration.
