USA - Page, Arizona

sunny 34 °C

We left the Grand Canyon and headed northeast towards the Utah border. We have heard great things about the National Parks in Utah and are pretty keen to check them out! The expanse of red desert, rock formations and canyons continued and our next stop was Page on the border of Arizona and Utah.

Page turned out to be a gem of a place to visit with lots nearby to explore! Glen Canyon, which leads into the Grand Canyon, winds its way through the valley here and ‘Horseshoe bend’ gave us great views of the deep canyon chiseled out by the Colorado River below. Glen Canyon Dam further upriver, dams the Colorado River before it enters the Grand Canyon and generates power for the region. This has created Lake Powell, a large lake in amongst the red desert and rock, now a holiday spot for boaters and families!

The highlight of Page was Antelope Canyon. In order to see the canyon we had to take a guided tour as the area is prone to flash flooding. It was amazing, we spent an hour winding our way along the beautiful red rock canyon, just under the ground, with orange hues with bursts of sunlight pouring through.
