This is a photo of Horseshoe Bend taken at sundown. Not a bad way to spend an evening!
The Horseshoe Bend parking lot is located 4 miles south of the Glen Canyon dam on the west side. The hiking sign is small and easy to miss, but the parking lot is easy to see from the road. Hike west 3/4 of the mile over loose sand and Navajo sandstone and you will be at the edge.
