Oct 14, 2019 - Zion, UT to Page, AZ

October 14, 2019 Normally we would eat dinner at the Zion Lodge. It is located on the Zion Scenic route which is only accessed by shuttle buses. (We did see cars in the lot yesterday so you must be able to drive if you have a room there). At this time of the year the last shuttle left the Lodge at 6:30. Thus, we found ourselves (along with many others!) at the Spotted Dog across from camp. We were once again reminded of 7 years ago when we biked down the Scenic Drive from the Temple down to the Visitor’s Center. With the frequency of the...

Aug 28, 2019 - 22nd STOP - Page, AZ

8/28/19 - US 89 from Panguitch to Page was a lot better road than I expected. Lots of straight sections where I could go 63 mph. Also went through some canyon sections at 45 and some small towns at 35. One small "town" had lots of bars and RV Parks. Kanab was a pretty big town. We stopped just over the bridge at the Page Dam so I could walk back and take some pics. We are staying at the same RV Park where we stayed in 2003 when we were with Bryan and Diane. They are the ones who got us into RVing when they showed up with a toy hauler in...

Jul 4, 2019 - Small town Fourth of July

Page, AZ We started the 4th of July as many Americans do – we watched a parade (loosely defined). The first half consisted of every emergency vehicle in the entire county, both land and water, rolling down the street with its siren sounding. This was followed by every sort of conveyance that could hold people such as a pickup truck, a boat, a low boy and trailers. The riders either threw out candy or squirted people. Those in the know about the candy had big bags like trick-or-treat bags with them. Interesting. We followed up the parade...

Jul 3, 2019 - Upper Antelope Canyon

Page, AZ Antelope Canyon consists of two parts – Upper and Lower. The biggest difference between Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon is the size of the canyon itself. The Upper canyon is wider at the bottom vs. the top which is what produces such beautiful light beams inside the canyon. Lower Antelope is much smaller at the bottom, and is shaped like the letter “V.” Upper Antelope Canyon is at ground level so one walks right in (no stairs) and is easier to walk through but also is much darker than Lower Antelope Canyon due to the Upper Canyon...

Jul 2, 2019 - Lower Antelope Canyon

Page, AZ A tour of Lower Antelope Canyon, also called “The Corkscrew”, is an amazing experience. It is the most photographed slot canyon in the world. A slot canyon is significantly deeper than it is wide. Both Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons belong to the Navajo tribe. The only way to see them is through a tour. The Lower canyon is the more strenuous of the two. Although the tour is only 1.1 miles, it takes 1 to 1 ½ hours. The canyon is very narrow in places and extremely uneven walking so one must be fairly mobile. Our leader was a...

Jul 1, 2019 - Saying goodbye and Moving on

Page, AZ It was time to say farewell to the North Rim and reluctantly head out. Taking our time we drove to Red Rock Motel in Page, Arizona where the temperature, rather than a lovely 69° was a scorching 100°. The Red Rock Motel is in the Old Quarter - street of little motels. These were originally built to house the men who built the dam that created Lake Powell. Page is a relatively new city. It was founded in 1957, after starting out as a government camp for the construction of the massive Glen Canyon Dam. For seven years (1956 through...

May 5, 2019 - Lake Powell, Page AZ area

Our next stop was Lone Rock Campground on the shore of an inlet of Lake Powell near Page, Arizona. The Lake is huge and what you will see on the photos is just a little cove or inlet from the lake. Lake Powell straddles the Arizona/Utah Border It has over 2000 miles of shoreline which is more than the combined state of CA, OR, & WA on the Pacific Coast. It is 400 ft. deep, 186 miles long and has a water storage capacity of 27,000,000 acre feet of water. Over 3,000,000 people visit the lake and the Glen Canyon Dam and Recreation Area every...

Another adventure

Mar 8, 2019 - Antelope Canyon boat cruise / Wahweap Az

Last tour day has us doing a boat tour to see more of Antelope canyon.It was windy and cold out there but we endured the coldness for the 90 minute tour.This huge boat was run by 3 native women ,Captain and helpers.The lake level ha dropped over 125 feet in the last decade due to the "drought". Lots of challenges and changes for anyone dealing with boats ,piers , boat ramps etc. The tour took us over to this side of the dam and then into the narrow canyons, quite a feat for a 50 ft boat! The hike up and down to the water level had lots of...

Mar 7, 2019 - Glen Canyon Dam/Horseshoe Bend/Antelope Canyon/Dinner Dance Show

Staying at the Lake Powell Resort located at Wahweap Marina in Page Arizona. This was a non stop day starting with a tour of the Glen Canyon Dam. A special surprise stop was at Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River. After lunch we got into the trucks to take us out to Antelope Canyon. On the ride back to the hotel around 5:30 our driver got pulled over by local cops near the top of a hill after crossing the river. We must have been on the side of the highway for a good half hour. We found out later he got a speeding ticket going up that...

Oct 21, 2018 - rafting on the Colorado River

On Saturday, we had an adventure planned – we were going to take a raft down the Colorado River! We signed up for a tour with Wilderness River Adventures and arrived at the tour office in Page around 10am for our 11am trip. Since the Glen Canyon is a National recreation area, Steve used his Senior Pass to save us the $15/head entrance fee. We still had to pay for the tour itself of course, but his Senior Pass is really saving us some change! We boarded a bus and headed towards the dam. To get to the base of the dam, we rode through a...

2018 Life in our RV

Oct 18, 2018 - Back in Arizona!

The night before we left Heber City, we went out to dinner with Charese and Travis – a young couple with 2 small children that pulled in near us in a Momentum toy hauler similar to ours. We went to a steak house on the outskirts of Heber City and had a good time visiting with them – they had just recently started living in their RV full-time so it was nice to be able to share stories with them. We left Heber City and started our trek southward in search of warmer weather – the temps had dropped into the teens and we were burning through the...
