After departing Zion, the 2nd stop on my southwest camping trip was Glen Canyon and Page. Other than the places I’ve called home, this was the first place where I have returned to visit as a tourist. But this time, I checked out more than just the famous Horseshoe Bend – and boy was there a lot to see and discover. Check out some ideas to add onto your itinerary.
Nestled in the colorful sandstone hills …
I found myself surrounded with hoodoos,
free to roam and explore
and take fun pictures.
Glen Canyon – Cathedral Wash
The drive was gorgeous
The hike through the wash started out wide and sandy …
It quickly narrowed with some obstacles to climb past.
I had a lot of fun tracing the path of what was once a raging river that carved out this canyon.
A little more accessible is the little beach by Lee’s Ferry where you can find people fishing and chilling.
And of course, I had to end the great day with a beautiful sunset accompanied by a chunky steak!
Jump started the next day bright and early, roaming down the deserted road …
… to capture my own classic shot of Horseshoe Bend
