My Horseshoe
My version of a horseshoe-shaped bend of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona. It is downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. It is accessible via a ½-mile (0.8 km) hike from the access parking lot. No railings, no steps, just a 1,000 foot drop from the edge to the water. The hike is not difficult, but the return is up a sandy rise so it adds difficulty walking in the sand. Very eerie feeling being able to walk up to the edge with no restrictions.
