Horseshoe Bend is often what seems like an optical illusion with how the water has worn down the sides of the sedimentary rock. It is often hard to grasp its beauty simply in one sitting. A large canyon from above or a mountainous landscape from below. Certainly one of the most beautiful wonders of the world.
The first time I saw this place, I felt I was the rock that was wearing myself down. Over time, what I felt was only small sacrifices that I was making, just like the water below, I too was beginning to ware. Sedimentary rock can be like the phases of one's life. As the water wears us each year, a new layer of ourselves appear. Each year as we progress, we too become fully exposed for who we truly are and what we can be if we continue along the same path in our lives.
