Break at Lake Powell 

After several days of hiking in Zion Canyon and Bryce Canyonon the way home, I stop at the largest artificial lake in the US, Lake Powell. I made a first stop at the Wahweap marina. As it was off season, there were many places close, so I went to the main ramp, and to the beach.

I was coming, in fact, to do “stand up paddle“. I had my equipment in the car, but by press time, I have renounced. Another time, maybe, because there are what to do with him 300 km long when it is at its highest level and has 3136 km of shoreline, more than the entire west coast. There are no less than 96 canyons with ocher and red rocks, the Dungeon Canyon which is still used today by the Navajos who go down to their sheep so they can drink the fresh water of the lake, caves , Indian ruins, islands and rock formations, including the jewel is the Rainbow Bridge.

Then I left, in the direction of Glen Canyon Dam. I made one last stop at the panoramic view on the road “Lake Shore Dr.”, before taking a meal in the town Page. I wanted to arrive in time to take pictures of the sunset in the famous “Horseshoe Bend“.
