Marble Canyon, Arizona
Including Horseshoe Bend and Lee's Ferry
Marble Canyon begins at Glen Canyon Dam on the Arizona-Utah
border and heads south until it widens dreamatically and essentially
becomes the Grand Canyon. By far the best-known part of Marble Canyon
is Horseshoe Bend, where the Colorado River makes an almost complete
circle. The Vermillion Cliffs loom high above much of Marble Canyon,
especially in the area around Lee's Ferry and Navajo Bridge. If
you're lucky you can also see California Condors in this area
(I got one photo of a condor but it's not website worthy)
