Bonjour à tous, Cette journée j'aurais pu l'intitulée " EXCEPTIONNELLE" Beaucoup d'entre vous sont venus à Page, sur les rives du Lac Powell, mais je pense que peux, que très peu sont arrivés par la route que j'avais programmée, et sans aucun n'a fait la découverte, que j'ai faite aujourd'hui, vous allez comprendre pourquoi. Ce matin je fais un gros effort pour me sortir du lit à 6h30, une nuit réparatrice, après 2 nuits presque blanches. Aujourd'hui j'ai prévu Page, comme destination, mais en passant par, une route secondaire, qui traverse toute la réserve des Navajo. Comme ma "gèremène" n'est pas simple, j'y vais par petite touche. La première destination Second Mesa à 100 km au nord de Winslow. Une route toute plate, sur un plateau à 1800 2000m d'altitude, un petit 20°, un ciel d'azur, ... read more

Kanab to Page was painless, reason for coming back to Lake Powell was to see Antelope Canyon that we didn't get to see last time. Incredible, you walk a short way to the top of the crack in the ground and walk down very steep metal steps that have been bolted into the wall of the canyon leading down into it. The photographs capture the strange and beautiful formations from mother nature that have carved a whole other world into the ground. You walk about 1/4 of a mile through the slot canyon and up a few steps. You have to have a guide take you through as it is Indian land and they don't want you just wondering on your own. Well worth coming back for. We only stayed a couple of nights and then ... read more

When we arrived there were already five cars in the car park, dashing our hopes of being alone. It was still dark, though the eastern horizon was considerably brighter than when we had left the hotel a few minutes ago. Excitement had replaced the groggy, pre-coffee feeling of a 5am alarm. We stepped out of the car and felt the chill of the cold hours of the end of a winter's night in the desert. We'd already missed a sunrise at the Grand Canyon so I was delighted to be doing this, whatever we had to suffer. It was a half-mile walk over a sandy hill to get to the rim, it should have been easy but the cold and altitude left us breathless. When we arrived we found that the best position had not yet ... read more

texto en castellano debajo del francés... Ce matin, 31 décembre... il neige... la route est bien blanche mais ça roule... Nous quittons Moab en direction de Page que nous connaissons déjà... Nous avions prévu de visiter Canyonlands mais de un la forme est de moins en moins là, la fièvre s'élève déjà au lever à 39.9°... et de deux le brouillard mais aussi le froid ne nous permettrons pas de le faire... Le "visitor-center" est fermé depuis pas mal de temps et sincèrement à celui d'Arches on ne nous conseille pas franchement d'y aller... Nous faisons donc la route tranquillement, chacun se tenant les côtes à chaque quinte de toux car elles sont toutes courbaturées... La neige nous quitte assez vite heureusement et nous découvrons en route un petit village (Bluff Fort) reconstitué du temps des ... read more

R: Another one in short succession. Today we went to the most amazing place. I'm going to let the pictures do the talking (scroll right to the bottom for more!). We stayed overnight in Page, which is an extremely dull new town that was built for the construction of the dam. It did have a great street that had all the towns churches in one handy cluster (10+), but that was about as exciting as it got. In the morning we took a pickup truck out to Upper Antelope canyon which is a slot canyon, meaning it's no more than a metre wide in places, and the sandstone gets carved by successive flood waters leaving amazing whirlpool marks, debris and etchings in the Najavo sandstone. The floodwaters enter every summer, some being higher than others, and ... read more

We had a few different experiences in Page, AZ. The first was our trip to Antelope Canyon which is on Native Navajo lands. In order to get into this canyon you have to book way ahead to reserve a place on the guided tour into the canyon. Normally the pictures you most often see of this canyon are the spot light of sun streaming through the hole at the top of the canyon. However, that only happens at certain times and on only a few months of the year, so we were not able to see that. But the canyon itself is very interesting. In order to get there they pack 14 people into a large 4X4 vehicle to drive out to the canyon. So we did some real 4 wheeling!!! After leaving the paved road, ... read more

Monday, 29 June, 2015 Bob and Gena left early on their way east, while we will continue west then south. They had commitments they had to get home for. We miss them already. We drove back through Vernal, with all the pretty flowers, then on to Roosevelt, where we stopped for fuel at a Pilot. But their pumps didn't work and we had to go elsewhere. As we headed south we went over a pass that was over 9100 feet high. It was a pretty steep grade and we were moving pretty slowly by the time we reached the top. The downhill was much faster, but seemed to go on forever. We finally reached the interstate and a little rainfall that dropped the temperature from 97 to 69 degrees, then back up to 94 within twenty ... read more

Lake Powell & Glen Canyon Dam Der letzte Teil von Page bringt mich zuerst an den Lake Powell. Dieser künstliche See ist durch das Aufstauen des Colorado Rivers durch den Glan Canyon Dam entstanden und ist ein beliebtes Ausflugsziel der Amerikaner (National Recreation Area). Danach hab ich mir auch das Wunder der Technik angesehen, das diesen See produziert hat: den Glen Canyon Dam. Der Staudamm dient (natürlich) der Stromerzeugung, aber auch der Regulierung der Wasserzufur der Staaten am Colorado River.... read more

Scenic Route 89A + Grand Staircase Escalante Von Page richtung Westen führt die U.S. Route 89A und führt u.a. durch die Vermillion Cliffs über die Navajo Bridge vorbei an der Cliff Dwellers Lodge, wo Blanche Russells Auto den Geist aufgegeben hat, und sie beschlossen hat gleich hierzubleiben entlang der Route die die Erkunder Escalante und Domínguez 1776 auf ihrem Weg durchs unbekannte Land genommen hatten übers Kaibab Plateau und den gleichnamigen National Forest bis nach Kanab in Utah Der Rückweg über die parallel verlaufende U.S Route 89 bietet folgendes zu sehen: den Paria Canyon wo von 1870 bis 1929 noch ein paar Leute wohnten, von denen nur noch ein Friedhof übrig ist. Manchmal wurde der Ort als Filmkulisse verwendet, jedoch sind mittlerweile alle Kulissen zerstört. Hoodoos, Toadstool r... read more

Page Arizona Antelope Slot Canyon Ein Canyon im Sandstein, durch den Lichteinfall von oben schauts so toll aus, und der Besuch ist ein Muss wenn man zufällig in Page, AZ vorbeikommt - oder man fährt extra deswegen nach Page, AZ. Ganz wie man will. Der Canyon liegt Navajo Land, daher kann man nur mit einer von Navajo People geführten Tour in den Canyon. Der Canyon teilt sich in zwei Teile: den "Upper Antelope Canyon" und den "Lower Antelope Canyon". Horseshoe Bend gleich ausserhalb von Page macht der Colorado River einen 270-Grad Bogen --> den Horseshoe Bend (Hufeisen-Bogen)... read more
