Exploring Page, Arizona

On our second day in Kanab, we actually drove an hour southeast to Page, Arizona. My body clock was way off because of daylight savings – Arizona doesn’t participate so instead of having the same timezone as Utah, it actually stayed an hour behind. So driving through the state lines made it really confusing for me and my phone.

We initially drove into Page to have lunch at Big John’s Texas BBQ. However, after finding out that it was only fifteen minutes away from Horseshoe Bend, I convinced my parents to check out the latter first before eating. My parents were more than happy to stop by while my brothers were a whole different story. When we got there, only mom and I did the quick hike to see Horseshoe Bend AND IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

Nature is absolutely beautiful, y’all. Remember when I went to see the Grand Canyon the first time and had tears in my eyes? The same thing happened here. It was such an extraordinary and oh wow. How is this place even real?!

After seeing the Horseshoe Bend, we had a scrumptious lunch at Big John’s and it did not disappoint either. Their coleslaw and potato salad were amazing. Also, their ribs were out of this world!!

On our drive back to Kanab, we pulled over the side of the road to check out the Toadstool Hoodoos. My dad had seen sign for it and wanted to check it out! Toadstool Hoodoo is part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, the sun was setting and it was looking rather gloomy; we grabbed some photos and decided to hike to the hoodoos another time.

The four days we spent at Kanab were too short! Hopefully there’s a next time. Before you go, check out the video I made!

  • Wow, Horseshoe Bend looks breathtaking! I remember seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time as well and it was just the most beautiful thing ever and I’d love to go back there again since it’s been a while. I’ve only been to Phoenix for a work function but I’d love to see Arizona on a vacation.

  • Page in Arizona seems like an amazing place to visit indeed. This place is breath-taking!!! I can understand why you had tears in your eyes, when nature is this beautiful, it is really touching. Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos.

  • Hey Eena! First off I just wanted to say this is my first time visiting your blog and I think it looks GORGEOUS and simple, very minimalistic! I love it so much πŸ™‚ I didn’t know Arizona didn’t participate in DST, that’s something new that I learned today! Horseshoe Bend looks so amazing. I just love nature and the different unique forms or structures we find and how it varies from one place to another! The food also looks really good, it’s making my hungry. Thanks for sharing your Journey!!

  • I love finding little gems while discovering something else I planned to do. At least the day sounded eventful and fun even though you didn’t see the toadstools.

  • I really want to visit Kanab! And was that snow on the ground!?

    Really awesome pictures and cool video btw. Think I’m going to need a vacation in my future? Lol

  • Your photos get me so excited for my 42 day USA trip that starts NEXT MONTH – I am so excited! It has come around so quick. Can’t wait to take in all the views and try out all the amazing USA food! <3

  • Oh wow, that photo from Horseshoe Bend is absolutely stunning. I can see why you would want to make the trip if you were going to be that close, I would too!

  • WOW, this looks stunning! Your photos are amazing once again and I really think that the gloomier weather adds something to them too. You blew my mind a little with that comment about daylight savings, I had no idea that some states did it and some don’t. That’s so confusing!! x


  • How amazing! I think we were visiting Arizona around the same time. We saw the sign for Page, but didn’t realize that we should’ve stopped. Next time, for sure! Thanks for sharing, and great pics.

  • Wow, what an awesome trip. I didn’t realize that Arizona doesn’t participate in daylight savings time. I like Horseshoe Bend and Big John’s Texas BBQ along with Toadstool Hoodoos. The pictures of the places you visit are always amazing.

  • This is just giving me so much wanderlust and rekindling old memories. I haven’t been to Horseshoe Bend, but it’s on my list. I did a roadtrip from Vegas to Hoover Dam (pretty sure we had time issues with our phones somewhere on that journey) to Arizona (where we were based) then went to Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon. Both were utterly exceptional and I wish I had more time at each site. We rushed through it sadly. I still remember being taken aback with the Grand Canyon. It is so beautiful, had it not been so cold I probably would have shed a tear too.


  • OOT but that arizona logo looks like captain marvel haha eena i am always jealous how you managed to find great outdoor spots to explore! the horseshoe bend is looking amazing. is that even real??? how do you shot it, manually or with drone? anyhoo those ribs made my mouth water omg

  • Oh wow, Eena, your photos are simply stunning! I’m so envious of you visiting all these breathtaking places, there’s nothing like that over here, haha. I loved your last post and this one is giving me all the wanderlust feels too. Honestly, Horseshoe Bend is on my bucket list now. Thank you for sharing your wonderful trip! xx

  • I’m amazed that not all the states do daylight saving!! It hadn’t occurred to me ever that that was even a thing! How did your phone know what to do?! XD Horseshoe bend look’s incredible, I’m sure I would have welled up too. Well done for getting the family to stop! I’ve been loving all your pics from this trip on Insta, hopefully I will go one day!
