Sunday morning we were up early and on the road, headed for the small town of Page, AZ along the shores of beautiful Lake Powell. After the cold and snow of Bryce Canyon this past week, we were looking forward to the warmth of northern Arizona for a change of pace. The drive was an easy 140 miles, mostly on Rte. 89, a good two lane road.
Its pretty cool to be driving through the desert and have a large body of water appear on the horizon.
We pulled into the Wahweap Campground and quickly settled onto a large concrete site. Many thanks to Sue and Dave of Beluga’s Excellent Adventure for a heads up on this great campground. After viewing their blog a few weeks ago, we switched our plans to come here, and we’re sure glad we did. This place is beautiful!
After setting up, we drove about five miles to the west for a visit to the Carl Hayden Visitor Center to find information on hiking in the area and to get a look at the Glen Canyon Dam.
On the ride back to the motorhome we stopped to take in the great views.
We certainly did experience a change of climate today. Bryce Canyon was having high temperatures in the 60s, while here in Page that’s the low with high temperatures approaching 90 degrees. So its only a matter of time before we start complaining about the heat!
Sunsets in northern Arizona are pretty nice ! ! !
