  • Lake Powell, is a destination "hot-spot" with its breathtaking scenery and welcoming environment.

Lake Powell is also a gateway to many world-famous attractions such as Rainbow Bridge in Utah.

Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park

Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon is a "slot canyon", a narrow chasm in erosions in sandstone. Years of water and sand has rounded the edges to form curves and flowing shapes in the rock. Photographers love the beauty and unique shapes and lighting conditions of the canyons. Flash flooding still occurs in the canyon and may, at times, result in up to several months of closing. Since 1997 the area has been accessible only by permit as it is now a Navajo Tribal Park.

Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend is the name for a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States. It is located 5 miles (8.0 km) downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, 7 miles (11.2 km) upriver from mile zero of the Grand Canyon, and about 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of Page.
