Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend is unreal.

This was my second time going, but it was even more magnificent the second time around. We went for sunset and the colors were breathtaking. Our hearts were pounding when we got to the edge- not because we are extremely out of shape, but because you’re so high up and the stunning scene in front of you is much bigger than you could have imagined. What a glorious world we live in!

It’s about a 5 minute drive from “downtown” Page, Arizona. You can’t miss it, because you’ll see hundreds of cars parked on the side of the road/small dirt parking lot. The best part about it is it is 100% free! It’s about a mile hike (up a dirt hill and down a dirt hill) to get to the edge. Although there are always lots of people, you’ll feel like you’re by yourself in nature once you get to the edge. It is so much bigger than it even looks in photos. If it isn’t already, it (and the whole area in general) must be added to your bucket list!

For you fashion lovers out there, I’ve included similar styles of my outfit down below under $35. I’m so glad I wore something light and airy on the hike so I wasn’t too hot in the desert heat!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

XOXO,

Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon sits under ground, hidden in all her glory on the Navajo Reservation near Page, Arizona. In orderto view this natural beauty, you must book a tour. This was one of the coolest tours I’ve ever been on! It can be a bit pricey, but so worth the money. We booked our tour through Dixie Ellis here. Because this canyon was formed by water, the tours can be canceled if there is bad weather in case of flash floods. However, Page, Arizona rarely experiences rain, so you should be good.

We went booked ours ahead of time for earlier in the morning on Memorial Day. We knew it would be crowded being a holiday, and it was about an hour wait once we got there. However, as soon as it’s your group’s turn to go into the canyon, you feel like you’re the only ones in there. It’s about a mile long and 100% stunning. God truly is the master artist.

The sunlight pours in at the top of the canyon and illuminates the walls. Depending on the angle of sunlight, the walls are different colors. I hardly edited these photos at all because they are full of color as they were. If you have the opportunity, you must go! It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. We live in such a beautiful place.

Castle Rock Beach


How pretty is this natural rock castle?! We had the most amazing time on this beach at Lake Powell. The sand was so soft & the scenery was so beautiful. It wasn’t even far from the marina either. Like I keep saying, if you haven’t been to Lake Powell you need to go. It’s the king of all lakes. 

This week has been crazy with working my full-time job and 2 Rangers games already & it’s only Thursday morning! But I have tomorrow off, so we are going to spend some time with family. I can’t wait! 

Do you have plans for the weekend?

Xoxo,
