Horseshoe Bend I

Sunrise at stunning Horseshoe Bend is always a magical experience. The Colorado river meanders along between Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon and has carved its way through the local sandstone over millions of years. I like to come quite early to see the spectacle of the far cliffs turn golden as the sun slowly breaks the horizon. The light and therefore the colors are never the same here and the view changes quite a bit from different angles along the cliff. This is the most scenic river bend I know and one of my all time favorite landscapes.
