Trail to Horseshoe Bend, 2017
I am not a fan of heights. I was reminded of this in March of 2017 as I made my first visit to Horseshoe Bend, outside Page, Arizona. My plan was to stick around long enough to get some dramatic photos around sunset, but when I arrived and discovered a much more dramatic drop than anticipated (one that was swarming with people), I decided I didn't want to wait out the three hours. Instead, I wound up taking a few handheld mid-afternoon shots, which still look good simply because the view at Horseshoe Bend is so incredible. But the shot that really sticks with me from the experience is the one I got of the trail on the way there, absolutely swamped with tourist tracks.
