Lake Powell AZ
and surrounding area
While camped at Lake Powell we
camped at Wahweap Campground
The view out the front door of the
MotherShip was gorgeous! That rock
is the same one seen in the previous
blog at sunset! It changes colors all day!
This was taken early morning after
a night of rock 'em sock 'em
By noon, color had returned to the rock
and to the skies.
Sunset reflected off the rock!
Road tripping around Page AZ
beauty all around!
The rock formations are huge
and curiously shaped
That dark blue stripe at the top of the
photo is the Colorado River. It forms
Lake Powell behind the dam.
More beauty. The night rains just
intensified all the colors!
Horses wandering on the Navajo Rez.
They have right of way on all highways!
Seeing this semi-truck beneath the
towering rocks give you and idea
of how large the rocks really are!
That small yellow sign behind the truck
informs of a runaway ramp ahead
because we are about to go down a very
steep hill! That little white stripe across
the top is the lower 1/2 of the highway
we are on! eeeeek!
A very long way down!
Once safely down, we encounter more
horses open range!
Another tourist enjoying the sights!
Back at Lake Powell
The landscape is other worldly!
In fact, the movie "Planet of the Apes"
was filmed around here!
The water is a very dark blue because
it is so deep! These were once
beautiful canyon lands!
If you get a chance read "The Monkey
Wrench Gang" by Edward Abbey.
Interesting story about the making of
Wahweap Marina at Lake Powell is
packed! You can rent everything here
from personal water craft to house boats
As I mentioned in the previous blog,
we are currently at our home in
Truth or Consequences NM.
I have one more blog to finish all
photos taken around Lee's Ferry AZ.
We head for FL in 2 more days so
Lee's Ferry will be the last blog for
this amazing journey that we have been
travelling this summer.
We love you all!
