Lake Powell @ Page, Arizona

Lake Powell, Page, Arizona
Page, Arizona is one of the popular adventure destinations in the Southwest. Aside from Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend, Page is a popular boating destination because it is bordered by Lake Powell. Page is also the hub of the Grand Circle, being close to many spectacular National Parks of the Southwest. 
Lake Powell @ Wahweap, Page, AZ
Lake Powell is a reservoir on the Colorado River, the second largest man made lake in the US. Though most of Lake Powell is in Utah, but the Wahweap Marina, which is 6 miles West of Page is a very strategic location for most tourists exploring the Grand Circle.

  1. Great site. A lot of useful information here. I’m sending it to some friends!

  2. This is certainly a beautiful place.

  3. We have tried to get to Page several times and every time, the Marriott there is unavailable! We just traveled over to Parker and Kingman. Maybe next spring we'll make it to Page. I would love to explore the area around it!

  4. I love the blue water at Lake Powell and fall colors you found in Page. Those look like some fantastic places to visit in your Grand Circle post too!

  5. Hi Beth, Doods and I are very much looking forward to explore the places comprising the grand circle. Your photos are truly amazing! Hopefully we get to explore those wonderful places. We're really excited! :) Cyah in a couple of days, dear friend! :)

  6. Sending our love this Christmas to you and your family.

    Best Regards,
    Dave, Eng and Ysabelle

    Merry Christmas and Sorry

  7. My husband went to Lake Powell a number of years ago on a business trip. It is a really beautiful place.

  8. Betchai, that is one spectacular looking place, serene and not very crowded. I have not visited there but I just love Zion National Park which I visited one with forensic nurse friends after our conference in Las Vegas. We spent two nights there, clearing our minds from all the casino clamor and just visiting with each other and communing with nature.

    My Christmas poem is at:

  9. How beautiful, Betchai! the information on Lake Powell is good to know. I would love to have a chance to visit..

  10. Merry Christmas! Hope you're doing something fun. Looks like Page is within a relatively short driving distance of all those other beautiful sites.

  11. Lake Powell is a man-made lake? whoah! amazing photos, Betchai! ey, merry Christmas!!!

  12. I would love to visit Lake Powell. I read a book by a man who was part of the bio survey before it was created.

  13. great view Betchai, it's like I'm looking at the real thing.

    Merry Christmas again!

  17. You always find the most wonderful places. This one looks to be among the best of them.

  18. Happy Holidays Beth! You certainly did well with your photographs as well as your trip.

    I have been sick since the beginning of December so I have been off line for a long time.

    May you and yours enjoy the remaining days off for the Holidays and wishing you the best of the New Year.

    I will see you around.

  19. Beautifully captured in your photos. I love the water photos.

  20. Hi Betchai, Happy New Year to you and your family.

  21. Just stopping by to say Happy New Year. As we are sitting here counting down to my son's
    bd too. Have a good one!

  22. I love the last picture with the Fall trees, but they are all beautiful.

  23. Wow! Beautiful Arizona! Look what blogging had taken you :-O. I really miss looking at your beautiful photographs (because I had been such a lazy blogger).

    Being a travel blogger is already in my wishlist. I don't see myself traveling at this time, but I hope to be able to be a traveler when I reach 40.

    Thanks for sharing!
