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:
Our destination for today was Kanab Utah, which was an easy drive about 5 hours:
|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!
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 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!|
On Sunday we head off to do the Canyons - but that's the next post!
Cheers Dave & Shell
