Horseshoe bend.

W3, day 14: 
When you see this from afar, it is hard to imagine...

..that this is hiding down there. 

The place is called Horseshoe Bend, and according to Wikipedia; 

Horseshoe Bend is the name for a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona.  The bend is locally known as "King Bend." It is located five miles (8.7 km) downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about four miles or 6 km southwest of Page. According to Google terrain maps, the overlook is 4,200 feet above sea level and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet above sea level making it a breathtaking 1,000 foot drop.

After Horseshoe Bend we had a dip in Lake Powell. 

The clouds were almost orange like the sand! 

Driving along the border of Utah and Arizona, leaving and entering states. 

On day 14 Trek America takes you to Cowboy camp. The man who is running this place used to be a Trek America guide. Now he is all about walking around in his cowboy boots! A couple of hours after arriving we went horseback riding, something I had not done since Cuba in 2004 I think!! 

Howdie Cowboy!!

I probably had the most polite horse ever, he was like NO trouble!! 

Texas born and bred, this guy had been on a horse all his life. 

A scenic sunset horseback ride. 

Everyone except Suki and I had a BIG steak. Rumor has it, it was the best steak ever!!

I had rice and beans instead, but with my cold still bugging me I am unable to tell you about the taste!!

The fun room interior, tasteful! 

I so suck at pool!!!

Pictures of the Cowboy Camp, a really fun place to stay. 

We loooooove the grass, aka softer ground.
