Lake Powell is the second-largest man-made lake in the United States and it is just beautiful. Our family looks forward to this trip every year. We usually go in early June when the water is still cool, the days are not too hot, and most kids are still in school. Our journey is made from Page, Arizona; mainly because we are able to get any supplies we need from town and the marina offers many amenities. When you’re on the lake, expect to participate in everything it has to offer: swimming, hiking, fishing, water sports and the fantastic views. I never tire of taking photos of the amazing scenery.
Lake Powell is quite large and there are MANY areas we still have not explored. One thing I do recommend is a visit to Rainbow Bridge National Monument. Is is any easy hike but be sure to bring plenty of water. There will most likely be many people walking on the path as there are tour boats that bring people to visit.
We like to use this time on the lake to just chill and unplug from the rest of the world. It amazing how much is gained from unplugging for a few days. If you haven’t done it in a while, I highly recommend it. It is one of the many things we can do for a creativity boost, if you want more information on that, you can click here.
We do a lot of inter tubing and “cliff jumping”. The boys are actually rock jumping but they like to call it cliff jumping. We have gone over the dangers of cliff jumping as people die every year here because of it. We also enjoy mud baths (well, I don’t), campfires and of course, Moscow Mules.
If you want to find out more about Lake Powell before your visit, here is a link to a guide. I think it should be on everyone’s bucket list.
