Vegas to Kanab

Hi All,
We after our huge week in Vegas we headed off first thing Friday Morning, traffic was pretty good & before you knew it we were back in the desert!

Of course the scenery was wonderful:
Just magnificent!

Our destination for today was Kanab Utah, which was an easy drive about 5 hours:
We had lunch in this beautiful little park surrounded by mountains:

A Little Oasis

The town itself it quite pretty and well maintained:
With some lovely little shops:
All surrounded by mountains

The next morning we headed off to the Grand Canyon North Rim - Last year we did the West & South Rim!

The first thing we saw when we entered the park
was a herd of Buffalo:

And some Deer

Unfortunately it was very hazy so the photo's don't show the true beauty of the Canyon but here are some:

Then we left The North Rim  & headed for Page.
We went over the Navajo Bridge which crosses the Colorado River:

Just before we got to Page we stopped at a Lookout for Horse Shoe Bend - Well worth the walk in 100 degree heat!
3/4 mile each way

Just beautiful - shame the water was so far away, it was bloody hot!
We had lunch in Page & then headed for Lake Powell, we crossed Glen Canyon Bridge over Glen Canyon

We were amazed how big Lake Powell was, we actually found out later that this was only a portion of the Lake:
It has it's own Marina

Checkout all the Mobile homes along the edge!
The we returned to Kanab for the night after a very full day!
On Sunday we head off to do the Canyons - but that's the next post!
Cheers Dave & Shell
