Lake Powell and surroundings

Page is a modest tourist village/town at the banks of Lake Powell. Lake Powell is sometimes referred to as the Grand Canyon filled with water. And I must admit the views over the lake, with large rockformations along the shores as well as in the lake, make this a very nice spot.

From Page, you can book day or half day boattrips on the lake, of which many take you to one of the highlights of this area: Rainbow Bridge; the largest natural bridge in the world, which lies at the far end of the lake, and can almost solely be reached over the water. Although the boat trips are rather expensive, this must be very nice.

BUT, we had other plans.....
(I would say both better and cheaper)
Instead we visited in the afternoon two other magical places:

Antelope Canyon

ABSOLUTELY NOT TO BE MISSED!!! It's near Page and was one of the highlights of our entire holiday. It is a Slot Canyon, very narrow and formed by wind. There are more Slot Canyons in this area, but this one is the most famous of them all.

Horseshoe Bend

This is said to be one of the most beautiful views of the Colorado river. Only a few miles drive from Page. The name says it all. In this spot the Colorado river, flowing deep below you between straight rock walls, makes a 180 degree turn.

    You don't go 10 to 15 miles SW of Page to Horseshoe Bend. Have you really been there?

    You have some good info here. Nice shot of Horseshoe Bend - you obviously had a wide angle with you! ;-) This is definately a worthwhile area to explore!

    Love the Page page, Jan, Antelope Canyon is beautiful. If you ever get back to that area, be sure to visit Arches and hike through the Fins, eerie & spectacular wind formations...cat
