“The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper” (Eden Phillpotts)
A sense of space and magic is exactly what you get at Lake Powell. It is a huge, gorgeous, awe-inspiring piece of water with over 1900 miles of shoreline (comparable to the entire US Atlantic coastline) and a capacity of over 7 trillion gallons. In an odd coincidence of numbers it took 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days to dam and was completed in 1963. Wind, water and history have etched their lines into the rock so your eye feasts on the contrast of deep blue water and red sandstone rock.
This is an area that’s life-giving to most of the Western US and steeped in Indian lore too. You can loose yourself for days in the lake, hike the remote backcountry, bask on the beach, or frolic in the icy waters. As an extra bonus all the recreation areas are dog-friendly so man’s best friend can come right along with you on the adventure.
If we’d known it would be this cool, we’d have stayed for a month.
