One of my favorite places in Arizona!
Doesn't matter how many times you see it, it's still beautiful. That morning before the sun rose, we hiked for 1.2 kilometers to the lookout point.
Sunrise here was so amazing. We got to this place only with 4 other people, and when the sun was finally out, the crowd started coming in. The best time to see Horseshoe Bend is really at sunrise because the light is behind you and it's not too hot.
I remember my first time here when the wind was so strong it almost knocked me over. But a few months ago, I bravely sat on the edge above a 1000 foot or 300 meter drop.
Always check before you stand on the edge of the hanging rocks. Sometimes there is no other rock underneath to support the one that you are standing on. Be careful, and try not to take selfies with the bend behind you!
