One of the most amazing parts of Lake Powell are the canyons. There are endless places to explore and I was never disappointed with the gorgeous places we saw. The best though, by far, was Cathedral in the Desert.
Slipped the speed boat through an almost invisible crack in this huge wall of rock and it opened up into one of the most beautiful parts of the whole lake.
Shallow pools. Waterfalls. Cold sand and warm waters. Sheer rock faces with history right in them. Unfortunately because the water level was down about 6-8 feet and we all couldn't spiderman up a rock face like one of our friends, we weren't able to do the hike that takes you back into the canyon even further.
Still, the beauty of what we did see was more than enough.
