Scene from our campsite


Best $28 we have spent on this trip, outside of our National Park Pass. We were on 40 and headed East but some pictures we saw on Pat Mcmorrow's FB post and a book in a gift shop drew us north to see these Slot Canyons. They were beautiful beyond description. When you come out of the slit in the ground, there is no way of knowing the beauty that lays below the surface. The Indians did not commercialize these canyons on their land until 1980s because ithe elders felt it was so sacred. It is! Then we went on a boat tour in Lower Antelope Canyon at the Marina. I have never seen so much money in boats. Huge house boats with slides and jet ski docks on the back. I am sure these houseboats had formal living and dining rooms. They were BIG and lots of them. The speed boats, wow! Golf carts and off road vehicles are the norm here. Fancy ones!

We went on a boat ride to a canyon. Again beautiful. The walls got taller and the canyon got narrower as we went. Beautiful area Page, AZ. We also toured the Dam, it is only 16 feet shorter than the Hoover Dam. That is not too noticeable when something is over 700 feet tall.
