Quick Stops in Page and Kanab

Time to head north! On my way, I made a couple short stops, the first one in Page, AZ. This town did not exist before Glen Canyon Dam was built in the 1950s.
There is usually lots to do in the area, but this year everything on the Navajo reservation, such as Antelope Canyon, was closed due to Covid. We did go to see Horseshoe Bend, a beautiful overlook of the Colorado River.
Sally was a lot braver than I was...
We also did the short hike to the Hanging Garden.
Lots of Maidenhair Ferns growing out of the alcove.
Just beautiful!
Next, we moved on to a parking place north of Kanab, UT just outside the east side of Zion.
Within walking distance from our parking place is the Belly of the Dragon, a culvert under Highway 89.
There is an unbelievable amount of etchings the whole way through the tunnel.
I also took Sally on one of my favorite hikes in this part of Zion, the Many Pools hike. However, it has been so dry lately, that it was basically "No Pools."
On our way home we passed a family of Big Horn Sheep. Don't miss the baby mostly hidden behind the rocks. Next stop - Bryce!


I love comments!
