So, many people have heard of Horseshoe Bend in Arizona, well Utah has its own version! Go to Goosenecks State Park in South Eastern Utah. This is a very short detour on your way to Monument Valley and in this same area are many, many Indian ruins (have you heard of the Bears Ear Controversy to be analyzed by us very soon) that you can also see. See this link: Monument ValleyWe will be featuring some of these ruins in posts to come but for now lets talk about Horseshoe Bend. WOW! When you are sitting on the edge and you are looking down 1,000 feet onto the San Juan river and the way it has entrenched its deep path you can’t help but feel awe. This is an example of one of the most outstanding examples of 300 million years of a river carving out a desert. The river flows over 6 miles while only advancing in distance 1.5 miles because of all the twists and turns. Make sure to walk along the rim in both directions to get a wonderful view of all the different twists. There is a $5.00 fee to get in with your car but well worth the visit for the young, old and family of all ages. As always, let us know if you have any questions or need more details about our destinations.
