Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area includes the area around Lake Powell in northern Arizona and southern Utah formed by the Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River.  Upstream of Glen Canyon is Canyonlands National Park while Grand Canyon National Park is downstream.  

Lake Powell

Lake Powell is a popular boating destination in Page, Arizona.  I only stopped at the Glen Canyon Dam and at Horseshoe Bend a short distance downstream of the dam.  To get to the Horseshoe Bend overlook you must take a short trail that can be a little difficult because of the combination of sandy conditions and some elevation gain.
