Horseshoe Bend, USA

Next is an official card I received just recently from Cal...


It shows the Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River in Arizona. It is a horseshoe shaped meander and its rock walls contain variety of minerals, among which are hematite, platinum and garnet.
This place is considered like one of the most photographed ones on the Colorado River....kinda justified...the view on this one is stunning...I can't event imagine how it would be to be actually standing at this spot from where the picture was taken :)

a number of nice stamps on the back....the well-known clock to you all...and right above it a bird stamp from a set of 4 Coast birds issued in 2015, with this one showing the Frigatebird. Then we have a somewhat older stamp, from 1962, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Arizona Statehood. The last one is from the two Vintage Flowers' stamps issued in 2015.
