Friday’s Weekly Travel Photo – Horsing Around the Little Colorado

Posted on / by Alex Berger

The Little Colorado - Horses

Though its bigger brother the Grand Canyon gets all the attention, the Little Colorado, located just around the bend, has its own beauty and allure.  Today’s Friday photo was snapped at one of the overlooks along Highway 64, the Cameron to Grand Canyon ring road in Arizona.

The photo was taken as I paused at one of the small Indian jewelry stands that decorate the area.  Stiff from a few hours of driving I got out of the car to stretch my legs and check out the Little Colorado.  As I did I was greeted by these two curious individuals enjoying the view from their horse trailer. It would appear that these two horses found me even more interesting than one of Arizona’s natural wonders.  To think – I didn’t even get a chance to try out my, “So a horse walks into a bar…” jokes.  Perhaps it was for the best!

    I’ve never heard of this spot but it definitely makes me want to head out that way some point soon. It really looks like the perfect place to loose yourself in the outdoors!

      It’s a great little tributary that winds down and into the Grand Canyon. What makes it even better is that the highway up and into the Grand Canyon South Rim goes right along it. Hard to beat that level of access!
