Saturday, September 7
Glen Canyon and Lake Powell
We have done a bit of hiking today to stay true to our mission of never traveling on private property and we walked along next to Marble Canyon on our way the Glen Canyon Dam site. We received a special tour of the dam from the director himself. This is an amazing facility, and is the second largest in the USA. We are now on a 60-foot house boat on Lake Powell. I like to say we are in the middle of a lake in the middle of the desert. Our boat captain is Steven Ward, and he has taken us on a few tours of the side canyons here. Some of these are very narrow and hidden and we travel in the smaller 16 foot boat we have been towing. We will be here for several days and have a number of lectures and hikes to places of interest on our agenda.

Stay Well…
Richard
