Rock on way to L.Powell
Formation out of nowhere!
Surprise, surprise! After Judy thought we were scheduled to be in the Grand Canyon she discovered that we were a day ahead and needed to make an unscheduled stop somewhere. After checking the map we decided to make a detour to Page, Az and Lake Powell. A lake that was established in 1956 when Ronald Reagan pressed the button to start the first dynamite blast for the formation of the dam. Ten years later there was Lake Powell which is very nice and has some great walls of rock. It reminded me of several things we have seen but unique in its own sense. We enjoyed a 2 1/2 hr boat ride thru some twisting and narrow gorges. The pictures will speak for themselves. The road to Page was up and down and had great sights to see --- if you were not driving!
