Page, AZ It was time to say farewell to the North Rim and reluctantly head out. Taking our time we drove to Red Rock Motel in Page, Arizona where the temperature, rather than a lovely 69° was a scorching 100°. The Red Rock Motel is in the Old Quarter - street of little motels. These were originally built to house the men who built the dam that created Lake Powell. Page is a relatively new city. It was founded in 1957, after starting out as a government camp for the construction of the massive Glen Canyon Dam. For seven years (1956 through 1963) large numbers of construction workers were housed temporarily in Page as construction on the dam, Rainbow Arch Bridge, and associated projects progressed. Actually, the Old Quarter is two or three streets, occupied by row after row of squat cinderblock structures, many of them brightly painted, with names like “Debbie’s Hide A Way,” “Bashful Bob’s” and “Lu Lu’s Sleep Ezze Motel.” To view the sunset over massive Lake Powell, we (and tons of our closest friends) went to Wahweap Overlook. As the sun was sinking in the west, we watched the shadows moving upward on the canyon walls. The clouds to the east changed colors from white to pink and finally grey. We watched as the city lights came on – a signal that day was done.
