After coming off 4 days hiking in the Grand Canyon with no shower and not much sleep you can just imagine how I was feeling. As I’m driving into Page to find a Motel 6 to shower I noticed a sign that said Horseshoe Bend. I remember in my research seeing this so I did a U-turn and stopped. I looked up a huge climb and thought okay I can do this it’s just there when I reached the top I wasn’t even one-third of the way there. Really struggling physically, I dragged myself down to where I could see the viewing point. All of a sudden when I got there after a 2.5km hike I had another burst of energy as you can now see what was in front of me. Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States. The overlook is 4,200 feet (1,300 m) above sea level, and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet (980 m) above sea level, making it a 1,000-foot (300 m) drop. The rock walls of Horseshoe Bend contain a variety of minerals, among which are hematite, platinum, and garnet.
