Phenomenal Horseshoe Bend (Arizona, USA)
Two things that I love most from visiting remarkable places in the U.S. that related to nature and conservation are: they are affordable (sometimes for free) and these places are simply stunning. National Parks and natural landmarks in the U.S. are so unique and phenomenal, that should not be missed when visiting the country. Horseshoe Bend is one of these phenomenal natural landmarks that located in a small town called Page in the State of Arizona. We drove from Las Vegas to Page and stayed over there for a couple of nights. The town itself is a gateway to several astounding landmarks including the remarkable Antelope Canyon.
Page is located on a mesa in extreme north-central Arizona (source), and basically it’s a dessert and it could be extremely hot in the summer. The Horseshoe Bend is just about 8 KM (5 miles) from Page. It’s not far from the city but I am afraid it’s not easy to reach by foot or by bike due to the road and dessert nature of the area. We drive from Page to the Horseshoe Bend. There is a huge parking lot then we still have to walk to reach the Horseshoe Bend.
Unfortunately, the current pathways to reach the Horseshoe Bend is not friendly for wheelchair and stroller. It’s hilly, rocky and dusty road. However, I notice there is a new pathway development in progress and it looks like it will be a suitable pathway for wheelchair and stroller. Let’s hope it will be completed soon, nature, after all, is for everyone to enjoy. (And there is no fees admission to enter the Horseshoe Bend. Yes, it’s free for everyone!)
Thank you! 🙂 Have a great weekend!

Such gorgeous captures Indah. I agree there is so much beauty in the parks in North America. Such a large expanse to explore.
Thank you, Sue! And I still have to visit Canada!! 🙂
Indeed Indah! Would love to see you here.
I’m always surprised people don’t do more traveling around the U.S. – there are an endless number of places to visit.
I know! I wish I will stay in the U.S. even longer to explore more of the country. It’s so vast and so many choices 😀 I hope I can get the best of it during my stay here 🙂
Great post…great pics…I always wondered what part of the canyon Horseshoe Bend was. Antelope Canyon is also on my to do list….that’s a before or after monsoon season visit from what I have heard. Being in the Phoenix area, we are so close…thanks for the reminder !!
A stunning look at a stunning place ~ from underwater to the desert, Indah, you can cover it all 🙂 Beautiful.

This is the 1st I have heard of Horseshoe Bend Indah, and boy does it look stunning. So many of these wonderful landmarks await to be discovered. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
