Mar 8, 2019 - Antelope Canyon boat cruise / Wahweap Az

Last tour day has us doing a boat tour to see more of Antelope canyon.It was windy and cold out there but we endured the coldness for the 90 minute tour.This huge boat was run by 3 native women ,Captain and helpers.The lake level ha dropped over 125 feet in the last decade due to the "drought". Lots of challenges and changes for anyone dealing with boats ,piers , boat ramps etc. The tour took us over to this side of the dam and then into the narrow canyons, quite a feat for a 50 ft boat! The hike up and down to the water level had lots of...

Mar 7, 2019 - Glen Canyon Dam/Horseshoe Bend/Antelope Canyon/Dinner Dance Show

Staying at the Lake Powell Resort located at Wahweap Marina in Page Arizona. This was a non stop day starting with a tour of the Glen Canyon Dam. A special surprise stop was at Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River. After lunch we got into the trucks to take us out to Antelope Canyon. On the ride back to the hotel around 5:30 our driver got pulled over by local cops near the top of a hill after crossing the river. We must have been on the side of the highway for a good half hour. We found out later he got a speeding ticket going up that...

Oct 21, 2018 - rafting on the Colorado River

On Saturday, we had an adventure planned – we were going to take a raft down the Colorado River! We signed up for a tour with Wilderness River Adventures and arrived at the tour office in Page around 10am for our 11am trip. Since the Glen Canyon is a National recreation area, Steve used his Senior Pass to save us the $15/head entrance fee. We still had to pay for the tour itself of course, but his Senior Pass is really saving us some change! We boarded a bus and headed towards the dam. To get to the base of the dam, we rode through a...

2018 Life in our RV

Oct 18, 2018 - Back in Arizona!

The night before we left Heber City, we went out to dinner with Charese and Travis – a young couple with 2 small children that pulled in near us in a Momentum toy hauler similar to ours. We went to a steak house on the outskirts of Heber City and had a good time visiting with them – they had just recently started living in their RV full-time so it was nice to be able to share stories with them. We left Heber City and started our trek southward in search of warmer weather – the temps had dropped into the teens and we were burning through the...

2018 Life in our RV

Oct 14, 2018 - Antelope Canyon

Spent a rather leisurely morning at the apartment we had rented on Airbnb. This was a rather nice 2 bedroom, 2 bath place that on a per person basis was much less expensive than 2 hotel rooms would have been. Headed out around 10:30 for a late breakfast but the place Bonnie had selected was closed so we ended up at a Denny’s. Checked in for our tour of Antelope Canyon at 12:15. The tour departed at 1:00. They took us to the Canyon in converted pick up trucks. The truck bed was equipped w/ 2 outwardly facing back to back bench seats. They...

Oct 13, 2018 - Grand Canyon Day 2

Headed back to the park this morning w/ out a real detailed plan in mind. Both Bonnie and I were feeling the effects of yesterday’s excursion a bit so we decided on a somewhat simple day although as you can see from the steps still did a decent amount of walking. Started in Grand Canyon Village. This is an area of primarily lodges/hotels and shops right along the canyon. The Rim Trail runs through this area so we followed it and stopped at some shops along the way. At the end of the Village is where the trailhead for the Bright Angel Trail...

Jun 12, 2018 - Upper Antelope Canyon

Upper Antelope Canyon Navajo Tribal Lands Page, Arizona June 12th Today, we took the 11:00 am tour of the Upper Antelope Canyon to get some photos that we think are really fantastic. There are two entrances, the Upper Canyon and the Lower Canyon. The Upper Canyon can be accessed by simply walking into the canyon. The Lower Canyon entrance requires climbing down a set of steps. The Upper Canyon is where a photo was taken for the 2007 Microsoft Windows screen saver. Entrance to the Antelope Canyon is only through a Navajo Guide. Tour groups...

Jun 11, 2018 - Lake Powell/ Glen Canyon Dam

Lake Powell Glen Canyon National Recreation Area June 11, 2018 We went from Tuscon, AZ to Tempe, AZ, because we wanted to visit with some friends who lived in Scottsdale, AZ and because we had not been there before and wanted to see what it was like. We found out that it was very, very hot. It was nice to see our friends, but, it was just plain too hot for our tastes. Of course, people always say that it is not so bad because it is a dry heat. Enough said! So, we saw our friends and decided to move on. We had planned to go to Las Vegas,...

May 17, 2018 - Lower Antelope Canyon Tour

We got up early this morning and did the 7:30 Lower Antelope Canyon Tour. You climb down several sets of stairs 120 feet to the bottom of the canyon, then walk the 1/2 mile trail. It's hard to put into words what mother nature did to the landscape over the centuries. Enjoy.

Well, we're back in Arizona and it's warm. The drive from Mt Carmel Utah was less than 2 hours and pleasant enough. After checking in, we made the short drive to Horseshoe Bend. You'll recognize it as soon as you see the pictures. We've already got our tour tickets for "Lower Antelope Canyon" tomorrow morning.

Oct 4, 2017 - Wahweap, AZ

We stayed in Wahweap Campground in an area with full hookups. A short walk away is Lake Powell with sandy beaches where we can explore and watch the loons and watercraft. The only drawback is it's a 5 mile drive to get out of the rec area and the nearby town of Page has a WalMart, motels and some fast food joints. Scott booked and paid online for a tour of Lower Antelope slot canyon. This tour is on Navajo Tribal lands and there is a limit of 20 persons per tour and the number of tours daily. We arrived to find about 500 people waiting for...
