  • a stop at the Dam, Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon is a must if you switch from Page. as in many places in the US, you will be surprised by the sheer size of the attractions and colours

  • If you plan to see the horseshoe band, coming out of this, it is worth taking a step, especially if you have l annual pass; pleasant Lake and beautiful view of the imposing dam from the visitor center

  • Pretty awesome spot. Like all of the region you really need 4x4 to get to the best places. A lot of Glen Canyon is accessible to AWD and 2 wheel drive vehicles though. Lots of impressive salt flats, contrasting colors, and unique geology. I would definitely recommend this spot for the more casual vacationers. But lots of opportunities for the explorer type with the right vehicle.
  • We love coming to Lake Powell every year. This is a beautiful place to be. It's a perfect spot to refuel for the rest of the year. The cool, clear water, paired with the dry summer heat makes this my favorite place on Earth. The are amazing canyons to go boating through, some you can even hike. The are great swimming beaches and if you can, get on a houseboat and enjoy some time further up the lake. Amazing.
