Horseshoe Bend

The 270º horseshoe-shaped bend in Glen Canyon near Page.

Horseshoe Bend was formed by water following its natural path of least resistance. The sheer Cliff walls are made of Navajo Sandstone, a particularly dense type of sandstone.
In the process of erosion, the sandstone acted as a natural barrier, forcing the water to make a sharp bend in the river thorough softer rocks.
Can you see the Canyon Tour Campsite with the tied boats? It’s over 300 m down o.O Still can’t get over people sitting with their legs tangling over the rim for a selfie!
