After recuperating in St George, we packed up the cats, pulled in the slides, and headed for Lake Powell.

We had an excellent site at the Lake Powell Marina and RV Resort . . .
. . . with a fantastic view.
One day we took a boat tour of Lake Powell and some of the adjacent canyons.

|Can you see the frog?|
Another day we made a day trip to the Navajo Bridge which crosses the Colorado River at Marble Canyon, southwest of Lake Powell. The original bridge was opened in 1929. A new bridge, built next to the original bridge, was opened in 1995. The original bridge is now used only for pedestrian traffic.

There is so much to see and do in this part of the country but unfortunately it was time to start heading east.
