We hiked the ¾ mile trail to Horseshoe Bend this morning, but the shadows on the left were so deep that it looked black there.
We went on to hike to Hanging Gardens, where there are lovely ferns flourishing in the seeping water under their cliff. This hike takes off from Hwy 98/89, just east of Glen Canyon dam. Look for a hiking icon sign – it won’t say Hanging Gardens there. You’ll see a more complete sign in the parking area.
In the afternoon, at 2:45pm we again hiked the trail to Horseshoe Bend. SO much better for lighting then. John figures it would be best in the summer, like June. Also, as you approach the cliff, head for the right end – that’s where you’ll get better photos of the whole river.
Good day, with rest in between hikes.
