We have enjoyed our week here at Lone Rock, on the banks of Lake Powell. We are actually in Utah but when we drive a few miles to Page, we are in Arizona. Lake Powell, which is part of the Glen Canyon Recreation Area, is the second largest man made reservoir in the US, behind Lake Mead. We took a tour of Glen Canyon Dam in one of our previous visits. We seem to just do one or two new things when we come and so it looks like we have a reason to come back again as there are still many things to do in this area, which is a popular vacation spot. We have had a number of people vacationing from other countries staying here at Lone Rock. The day we got here there weren't very many people here, most of them on a hill closer to the entrance. I think it might have been the wind. Yes, more wind. When we set up, the wind was so strong, the sand was hitting us in the face. Luckily the weather improved during our stay, only one other day that was real windy. A little cool some days and warmer as the week went on. We love this place and the views are incredible.
One day we drove over to Horseshoe Bend, another horseshoe meander right off Hwy 89 about 4 miles from Page. There is a 3/4 walk through sandstone and loose sand to get to the steep cliff to view it. The walk starts off with a somewhat steep hill and then heads down hill. This was the middle of the week but there were quite a few people taking this popular hike. Like the meander at Gooseneck, there is a 1,000 foot drop from the cliff down to the water.
