USA ROAD TRIP – Items TO KNOW Just before Going to HORSESHOE BEND | U.S.A.



If you like Road Trips and you are dreaming of going on one particular in USA, there are some areas that shouldn’t be left out of your schedule. Apart from the coastal and heavenly Los Angeles – San Fransisco route, which is one particular of my favourite, I propose you tick some “Real American” cities in your list as well.

There are for instance, some provincial cities, not cosmopolitan at all, but with wonderful hiking trails and dreamy sights. Someplace in North Arizona, there is a city named Web page and it is just like it came out of an encyclopaedic book.

I visited this city 3 years ago and I came back this year to re-go on this fascinating trip to Horseshoe Bend. Driving to Highway 89, crossing Nevada, Utah, Arizona and getting only a couple of hours far from the dreamy Monument Valley, I decided to make an epic cease at this exclusive spot! It is a all-natural marvel, a scenery surrounded by stones and red rocks, building as a result an actual horseshoe in which river Colorado flows. The river reaches this spot by means of the dam of Glen Canyon which holds lake Powell back.

It is just five km from exactly where Grand Canyon National Park begins, providing you the sense that you are actually in its location. In a geographical aspect, it does not belong to the Grand Canyon however it is like a peripheral extension of it, like several other Canyons in the location.

After leaving and saying goodbye to Utah, the highway 89 led me to the dream of Glen Canyon!
