Popularity of Horseshoe Bend Explodes, Creates Need For Improvements
Horeshoe Bend is a very scenic overlook on the Colorado River, just below Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam and just above the Grand Canyon. It is often seen in photo books and on calendars. Incidently, it is about 8 miles south of the Utah/Arizona border.
In year's past it has been a minor blip on the map, but suddenly it's popularity is booming and land managers are seeing the need for improved facilities.
This KSL video provides an excellent overview of the area and challenges faced by visitors and land managers.
