Striking View

Photograph by J. Cho

Lightning strikes beyond the rim of Arizona’s Horseshoe Canyon in this picture submitted by J. Cho. “It’s just amazing and beautiful,” Cho writes, noting that the movement of the storm in the background makes the scene come alive. Located within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, the site is named for the distinctive bend of the Colorado River, which flows a thousand feet below the top of the cliffs.
