I'm kind of liking the 2 hour drives or less to the next stop. Before we knew it we were back in Page and parked in the Elks Lodge for a few nights. Nothing much planned. Just resting, catching up on blogs and making more concrete plans for Utah with some friends.
It's a pretty drive. You see some of the pink layered rock formations.
And a lot of wide open space.Faye and Dave told us about an nice drive but we didn't have that much time. I think someone else told me about hiking in Stateline Canyon? (Please remind me who you were as I didn't take good notes.) I got some directions off a couple of sites but it didn't really pinpoint where you start. We walked until we found the beginning of a canyon and took the one to the right like it said.
Down we go.
We had to scramble up and down the canyon to go around the bigger drop offs.
Up above the terrain changes constantly and the shapes of rocks were very interesting.
Hurley taking another rest.
It was slick and the rock streaked gray.
Some neat designs on the rocks.
Picture looking down at Lone Rock and you can see some of the folks out camping along the shore.
The bridge crossing over the Lake Powell Dam.
We stopped in at the museum to look around. It was small, but very nicely done. There was much information on the local tribes and first Americans through the area.
The next morning we said goodbye to the Elks and drove the 20 minutes to Lone Rock. We will return to the Elks tonight though as it is Wings Night!
We've got a nice firepit that was already there so we put our chairs out and enjoyed the sunshine. It's a wonderful place but I was just telling Steve it wouldn't be a place you'd want to be when it's windy.
Steve's office with a view!
Our Raven friend kept visiting too.
Our neighbor has such a shiny rig. We've seen a few of these in our travels.
It was about time to leave for the Elks for Wing Night and all of a sudden the sky turned very dark. We decided it would be a good idea to weigh down the rug as the wind was coming up a bit. So all the chairs and tables were folded up and placed on the perimeter of the rug just in case it got real windy. We weren't too sure of leaving but we were craving wings for some time.
The wings were delicious and we sat with some very nice people that gave us more info on the area.
Lee and Trace, were heading up to Utah a bit sooner and thought they might join us here and we'd drive up in a couple days together. Yay!
Next Up: Utah!
