Northern Arizona and southern Utah are abundant in scenic landscapes due to strong winds carrying fine desert sand and the mighty Colorado river erode the rocks in the region to create exquisite shapes and patterns. Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page.

The emerald-green Colorado River makes a gigantic bend more than a thousand feet below the overlook, swinging first to the east, then curving back to the west. According to Google Maps, the overlook is 4,200 feet above sea level and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet above sea level making it a breathtaking 1,000 foot drop.
