Lake Powell, Utah (Glen Canyon National Recreation Area) – North Wash Paddle.

Posted on

Once in a while we get a picture that really captures the beauty and adventure that we have been so fortunate to experience in our trips.  This is one of them.  Click on it, then click again, to get a larger image.

Day two at Hite dawned with the lake like glass.  We crossed the lake from our campsite and entered a small canyon which is the outflow of, currently dry, North Wash.

While the canyon is only navigable for a couple of miles it is a magnificent sight.  Seeing these canyons, and realizing that they were made a tiny grain of sand at a time, over millions of years, by these small rivers and creeks just boggles the mind.


The canyon walls in here are several hundred feet high and the canyon is a times a quarter to a half mile wide.  The geology of the southwest is continually fascinating.

If this guy is interested in us, it’s time to go.

We are planning on paddling up to the Dirty Devil River tomorrow before leaving Hite .

    Absolutely beautiful pics, guys. Love your blog. Always did enjoy your pics and commentary on rv.net, but even more so here. I can revisit your prior trips so much easier. My sincere appreciation for making access so simple, as well as sharing your fantastic trips each spring. An envious neighbor up in mid-coast Maine.

  2. Thanks for your kind words Jim. We’ll continue having & chronicling these adventures as long as we are able.
