The stunning Horse shoe Bend is one of the best must-see scenic views when you visit Arizona, USA. Being an extra-ordinary mother nature’s beauty, the spectacular and astonishing scenery is really worth visiting and viewing.

A side trip that will bring fun and excitement for nature lovers that cost nothing but a little effort of hiking. The bend is located near the town of Page, Arizona, accessible through a ¾ mile walk from the parking area which is just off highway 89 south of Page.

The Horseshoe bend formation is made of sandstone and slick rocks, famously known as the King Bend. It is within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and the Colorado River downstream Glen canyon Dam, which holds back Lake Powell. It is worth taking pictures as it can be viewed from the steep cliff above.

A breathtaking landscape with a panoramic view at more than 3,000 feet above sea level.

Because although you might find it odd, Tea with milk in it can actually be quite nice when done right, personally I recommend a Bettys tearoom because even though they are expensive they make exceptionally nice tea and scones.  Continue reading

Fancy Expeditions, new header design

As you may have noticed, this blog is sporting a new header design, exclusively made by my son JM, my blogging partner and co-author of Techno Grub.

Fancy Expeditions’ new header

The old pixilated header design was now sent to the trash bin lol. He surprised me last week through sending this new header via email, so this is the one that he has been doing during his rest days from his job.  I really appreciate and love its unique creation, therefore I immediately published my new header.
