Horseshoe Bend, Arizona
"Buy This Photo" Kings Bend-Vertical Vertigo, Arizona-Horseshoe Bend in Arizona is just downstream of Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River in Arizona. Locals call this place, “Kings Bend”. Imagine standing on the edge of a 1000′ vertical edge that goes straight down. Now imagine kids running around some 3 and 4 years old so close to a 1000′ vertigo drop. Something I witnessed. I usually get nauseous 3 steps up a ladder. As I approached the awesomeness of this planet earth wonder, I began to get queasy, the closer I got to the edge. The unexpected sudden drop does indeed take your breath away. I stayed for a fascinating sunset. It was so cool I had to come back for the sunrise. Hard to believe by the next day I took some shots with me sitting on the edge. Those I’ll share another time.
