Horseshoe Bend has become super famous lately and with good reason; it’s on the main highway, it’s only a short walk to the view point and it’s absolutely gorgeous! The only problem is that it’s pretty crowded and if you want to get a photo of the whole Colorado River bend you need to walk to the end of a 1000 foot cliff. Needless to say our photos do not show the whole bend!

If you’re visiting and respect your life as much as we do, we recommend walking around to the right side of the bend and climbing up the rocks over there. You get a better view and there are less people.

And yes, it’s as red as Australia’s red centre!
