Lake Powell – A Week in Paradise

Our family spends the first week of every June on a houseboat at beautiful Lake Powell in Northern Arizona.   Lake Powell is immediately North of the Grand Canyon.  It is like being in the Grand Canyon only with water.image

It is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.  We have our favorite cove where we dock the boat and literally don’t see another boat for the whole week.  I feel as if God created all of His majesty just for me and my amazing family.  It is a somewhat spiritual experience to be sure.

I enjoyed a relaxing week of playing in the water with my grandson and watching my kids wakeboard and tube.   In the afternoons I would sit on the top of the boat and put a few stitches in my “As we go Stripey Afghan”.

Later in the week we took a few short hikes.  The first was to Rainbow Bridge National Monument.   We drove the boat there and then hiked a mile or so to the bridge.   It really was amazing.image

Later we docked the boat at the marina and drove a few miles to Horseshoe Bend.  Wow!  Talk about a crazy view!  We stood on a 1000 ft cliff with no railings and watched the sun set over the Colorado River as it turned the bend.   This is not for the faint of heart!  But once again, Wow! AMAZING!

As you can see,  We had a fantastic get away.  It was a SWEET time with my favorite SWEET people!

I hope you all had a nice holiday as well.
