Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona, USA.

Horseshoe bend located in Page, Arizona is a natural horseshoe shape meander in Colorado river from the downstream of  Glen canyon dam and lake Powell. It been called "king Bend" by the local people. From US Route 89( parking lot)  it took about 8 minutes hike to  reach the cliff ( about 800m), the terrain is kind of steep up and down with some deep sand. It's about 1000ft from the cliff to the river below, so be careful and take care of your kids. It's kind of scary to take photos near the cliff because some of the stone is not that stable. So be sure not to step any stone that edge out of the cliff.
