Horseshoe Bend is the name for a horseshoe-shaped bend of the Colorado River located near Page, Arizona. The panorama photo is made from 8 photos. Yes, my tripod was setup right at the edge of a 1,000 foot drop.

Recent rains (before our trip) have enabled colorful plants in the semi-arid desert. We stopped in Capital Reef National Park to see the petroglyphs. In the latter part of the afternoon we drove through much forest land, in the Dixie National Forest, while viewing the changing colors of Fall. It was gorgeous.

Photos from Canyonlands National Park. We arrived in the dark, to see the sunrise on Mesa Arch, so we were in the park when it closed. We were permitted to stay as long as wanted to, that day. We intended to leave the park after sunrise, but we had to stay, so we didn't have breakfast until 4pm. We also hiked out on a "fin" into the canyon.

Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, at sunset. About 200 people were there taking photos. The long climb to the arch, on a rough uphill trail over stone, is grueling, and the walk back to the over-flow parking lot is mostly in dark dusk. It is painful to walk now.
