Colorado River U by kylewright Colorado River U by kylewright
Horseshoe Bend-Colorado River, Arizona. This was quite the view! You are probably not able to see it, but far, far below on the river, there are two kayakers braving the river. I'm not for sure on the distance, but it seemed close to a mile from where I was standing to the surface of the river. Maybe someday, I can go back and white water raft down the river!

Thanks, hope you enjoy!

wow, I love that scenery! Is it hard to get there? A long walk over or climb?

Ha! That's awesome! I have to say that your's clearly blows mine out of the water!

My biggest regret was that I didn't have a lot of time on that trip to explore the different times of the day and how the light reacts with the landscape...dad gum time schedules...sigh...:lmao:

LOL, I know what you mean. We were on a family trip and I had to leave one of the kids behind in-order to get there on time and just barely made it with the hike and all :evillaugh:

I would love to spend more time out there, it never gets old to me.

they are very very tiny, and yes rafting down the river would be lots of fun.

Thanks bud! It was a bit nerve racking standing next to the edge like that! And I'm not afraid of heights either...maybe it has something to do with the fact that if I slipped there was no margin of error...
