Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam
On our travels, we’ve wanted to come by here and stay at Page, Arizona near Lake Powell. We finally got here.Lake Powell was created by the Glen Canyon Dam, which is upstream on the Colorado River from the more famous Hoover Dam outside of Las Vegas. It’s monstrous !
On our way there, we travelled through some more spectaular country.This is just one of the views along the highway. It goes like this for miles. Hard to keep our eyes on the road.
Going across the Colorado River, there’s an old road bridge that is called Navajo Bridge. A new bridge has been built next to the old one due to the increased traffic and weights of the newer vehicles. The old one is now a pedestrian bridge that we walked on to see down the Colorado River Gorge.Here’s Photo-Kim taking dozens of photos.
Here’s the view looking upstream.
…and downstream. You can see a couple of 2-man rafts down below to show perspective.
The obligatory selfie.
I love this sign. What are they going to do if you jump?
