Lake Powell

We are really loving this area and the camping is just $5 a day with our 50% off pricing with our national pass. It is amazing that the places we stay that are the cheapest are often the ones with the most
"it" factor. Of course no hookups or other conveniences but we are all about the views. It is pretty warm, up in the high 80's but the way we are situated, parallel to the shore with shade on our water side all day and so is very comfortable to sit outside which I took advantage of, doing a lot of reading and taking in the action on the water with kayaks, jet skiers and other boats going by.

Lake Powell is a reservoir on the Colorado River,  straddling the border between Utah and Arizona.  It is the second largest man-made reservoir in the United States behind Lake Mead. It is part of the Glen Canyon Recreation area. Glen Canyon Dam is very impressive and has a great tour, which we took the last time we were here.  This area has been in drought conditions up until this last winter. Their water level had gone way down but they gained some back with all the rains during the winter.

We have had some nice sunsets and sunrises to enjoy. Below are some sunrise views on one of the few mornings we were up early enough to take some pictures.
