Photographer's Note

Horseshoe Bend in the Colorado River is upstream from the Grand Canyon and downstream from Glen Canyon Dam. Considering the popularity of this viewpoint, it's surprising that there is no sign on the highway directing people here. You have to read a guidebook to find that a particular unmarked dirt road outside Page, Arizona takes you to a parking lot from which an 0.7 km hike gets you here. You hike across a flat desert landscape and suddenly this appears in front of you (so hopefully you're looking where you're going, instead of at the cute girlfriends/boyfriends of other hikers or something.)

After planning to post this, I saw that some other shots from the same location had already been posted, so I hesitated. Then I saw that those other shots had snagged a lot of green smileys, so I figured I should cash in too! ;-)
