Raft Horseshoe Bend for an up close and personal experience with this iconic landmark

Travels with Deb

Draw a circle around Page, AZ and you’ll find numerous natural wonders. Among them is Horseshoe Bend, undoubtedly one of the most spectacular landscapes in the state. This near-perfect circular canyon, which is located in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, was carved into the earth by the Colorado River and is a result of erosion. It was formed by water following its natural path of least resistance, however, in this case, the route was not a straight line, but rather a substantial 270 degree curve.
