Lake Powell was named after explorer John Wesley Powell, who in 1869 explored the Green and Colorado Rivers for three months, including the first passage through the entire Grand Canyon.
Here’s a picture of a mail exchange. Dangling Rope Marina cannot be reached by land, so everything is done by boat, and our tour boat was carrying the weekly mail. Our crewman and the young lady exchanged locked metal toolboxes. Linda could not believe there was no flotation on the boxes. This marina is only a fuel and food stop and is open just six months a year.
This is the largest natural bridge in the world. It was carved over the eons and can only be reached by boat. To give you some idea of its size, the Statue of Liberty will fit under the arch. It really is quite impressive. Depending on the height of the lake, the bridge can be anywhere from a short walk to 1-1/2 miles from the boat. We walked about a 1/3 to 1/2 mile. Though it was a 50 mile one way boat trip to the bridge, our crewman told me that we had only seen about 10-15% of the lake.
We took a bunch of photos, and I tried to pick out some representative pictures to give an idea of this lakes beauty. I managed to pare it down to about 40. Enjoy!
